God’s Grace

Yesterday was Mother’s Day. My wife had a good day. The kids presented gifts and cards to her, and I did my part by cooking dinner. I think overall it was a good day.

I was concerned about how I would hold up. You see, this was the first Mother’s Day since my mom passed away. While I did think of her often yesterday, the thoughts did not make me sad. Instead I was surprisingly happy with my thoughts. I know that she had the best Mother’s Day ever yesterday, because the picture I have in my mind is her, and millions of other mothers, being honored by Jesus! What a comforting thought!

As I reflected today on this I thought of God’s grace, and how blessed I am to have received that gift of grace. While reading one of my devotions this morning, I came across this line: “My grace is sufficient for you”. At that same time I was listening to the song Your Grace is Enough. Coincidence? I think not. We’ve all heard it said that God speaks to us in a still, small voice. Well, today I’m convinced I heard it. Just when we need it, God’s grace kicks in and picks us up and comforts us. I pray today that those of you who are in need of God’s grace will receive it, and that you will stop and listen for His voice.

  1. Hey — This was my first year without my mom too. It was hard. I was pretty low but most of the day I didn’t even really think about it being Mother’s Day. It was easier than I expected but I sure do miss her!
