Life is full of disappointments, heartaches, problems, joys, and choices. Everyday leads to a situation where we need the Lord, some days it’s more evident than others. Such as days were faced with drama or the like from family, friends, and co-workers, or other believers in church. Having no idea how to react, our minds quickly debate between the responses of… ”Hulk SMASH!!!” or ”I’ma completely ignore you, FOR-everrr!” and then there’s ”I’ll just smile at them, and let them know they have no effect on me, or my pretty face!” LOL the list of responses goes on, and on.
*Good responses vs. bad responses, it’s not black and white when it comes to adversity in relationships…
A silent cry for help inside our soul, for God to show us the way, to help our emotions, and help us to deal with these people in love (even when we have no feeling of love)! I had a moment like this recently, and God gave me the grace to get through it with peace, and He used it to remind me He is always there for me when I need him *tears*. The undeserved grace of God.
Conclusion, Grace and the beauty there of: We need God, no matter how far our minds wander from Him, or His ways, life reminds us of our need for Him. He is essential, just like it says in the title of my post, our need for God equals grace sticky glue. No matter how hard our circumstances, they glue our minds to the reality of God’s grace that it is always there for us no matter what we do, or how bad we mess up, HIS LOVE is un-circumstantial! No, we don’t really need God’s grace… WE HAVE IT =) ALWAYS
