When I redesigned my blog in January, I was given a new tagline, I believe by the Lord — Whispers of Grace.
I believe the Lord is taking me on a journey of truly leaning in and listening, hearing His voice among the noise and clamoring of life. It’s not always easy for me to hear Him. Especially lately. I run in “shut down” or “shut off” mode more days than I care to admit. Or perhaps I’m on auto pilot, living in the mundane, and forgetting to live in the “in between”.
But His grace, it’s always there. Its surrounds me. It overwhelmes me in moments when I think I’ve come to the end. It lifts my head up when heaviness descends upon me. It gives me the strength to get out of bed in the morning, to drive to work, to homeschool plan and do all of the things that I need to do each day.
On those days when life feels overwhelming and my ear is turned to the noise of this world, I must stop and ask Him,
What grace are You whispering to my heart today?
When I hear, “You messed up again”,
His grace whispers ,”I am the God of second chances.”
When I hear, “You’ll never finish what you started”,
His grace whispers, “I will give you the strength to complete the race.”
When I hear, “You are ugly”,
His grace whispers, “You are lovely.”
When I hear, “You’re not a good teacher”,
His grace whispers, “I am your teacher and will give you the wisdom you need.”
When I hear, “You are not enough”,
His grace whispers, “In Me, you are enough.”
When I hear, “You’re too old to make a difference”,
His grace whispers, “I’m not finished with you yet.”
