Take a look around you. Moments of divine hope and inspiration light up life each day.
My husband is a strange man. He actually likes getting up early in the morning. Not this gal. I am so not a morning person! The house is quiet after my husband goes to bed, so I often stay up writing until the wee hours, and then I sleep in a bit the next morning to make up for it.
But on those mornings when I do get up early, I love to grab a cup of hot tea and stand at the glass doors in our kitchen, waiting for the light show God puts on each morning in the woods and meadow behind our house.
It’s so beautiful as the sun starts to peek between the trees on the left side of our land. And then as I watch, it progresses across the meadow, lovely glimmers of light shining through until it’s all lit up for the day. That makes me smile because it always feels like God is saying, “Good morning, Michelle.”
God does “glimmers” well. And each time I see His wake-up show with the sun peeking through the trees, I’m reminded of how often He’s sent glimmers of grace into my life. I thought I’d share some of those sweet peeks with you:
1) I don’t have to pay for His grace.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (Ephesians 2:8)
2) I don’t have to be hesitant about asking for grace.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:16)
3) His grace provides strength.
Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. (2 Timothy 2:1)
4) His grace is enough for all that I face.
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
So, today, I’m grateful for the “glimmers” in my life—the sheer beauty of the show as His light peeks through the trees and the sheer wonder of His grace as it shines into my life each day.
