Psalm 145:9 msg

gift-548286_640 (1)

God is not stingy with His gifts.
All He does is filled to overflowing with grace
and though we don’t deserve this gift 
He offers it to all people.

Where did you see His grace today?
Have you thanked Him for His gift?

Romans 12:18 niv

frosty-472871_640

To have peace with others, we must first have peace within ourselves.  
There are times we meet people who are hard to get along with,
disruptive, argumentative, disagreeable, angry, unhappy people.  
They probably have problems we don’t know about that affects their attitude.  
To find peace with them is difficult and sometimes just doesn’t happen.
As best we can be let’s be understanding, kind and compassionate. 
It may be best to let them go on their way apart from us
while we pray that they find the peace that comes with the Lord’s grace.

Is there someone close to you that threatens the peace you know?
Have you had to distance yourself from them?
Do you pray for them?

1 Thessalonians 5:15b msg

peacock-327481_640Sometimes the first thing we see about a person is not their beauty.
At least, not what the media would have us see as beautiful.
Often, we have to get to know someone before we see them clearly.
Once we know them we can appreciate their character and spirit, kindness,
patience, love, humility, service, encouragement; all the best in them.

Everyone has something beautiful about them. 
We are to look for their best, their beauty, and celebrate it.

Who is beautiful in your life?
What makes them beautiful?

Blessings this day of grace,

Psalm 4:1 kj

big

When David prayed he acknowledged  that God is righteous
and that He had shown mercy to him in the past.
David knew it was by God’s grace that his prayers were heard.

It is the same for us today.
God is righteous and merciful and hears our prayers.

When in distress do you remember the times past when God showed you mercy?
Do you tell Him you know He is righteous and that you remember His grace and mercy?

Blessings this day of grace,

patricia
