When we self-reflect, we can’t help but notice areas in our life that we would like to change—like weight, job or finances. In seeking change, many of us turn to self-help books, podcasts, articles, seminars and life coaches. While these resources may provide great insight on how to work towards changing these areas, we tend to forget the most powerful resource of all...grace.

God’s grace can take us places that no book or person can. It was grace that transformed Paul into a preacher as he was once a murderer. It was grace that freed Mary Magdalene from the evil spirits and brought her to witness Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. And it was grace that transformed Chuck Colson, one of the Watergate Seven who was sentenced to prison for obstruction of justice, into the founder of Prison Fellowship, a non-profit ministry for inmates.

"If we can get Guideposts inspirational stories into the hands of people who may not have a devotional life, they can share the true-life stories of how God works in the world. The joy of Guideposts is their free, donated magazines to my hospital.         --Rob C.,  Director of Pastoral Care.

The list of men and women whose lives were transformed by God’s grace is never ending. In order to truly change, it takes more than will power and hard work. It takes God’s grace. Through God’s grace and our faith in Him, all things are possible. He can change how we think, live and love. How has God’s grace changed your life? Please share with us.

Lord, may Your grace bring the personal changes we need, but cannot achieve without You.
