The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7One of the beautiful things along our journey through life is when we feel something and we describe it as feeling it with all our heart. This is not an academic statement, it is something that touches the very fiber of our being. The beauty of God's grace is that it takes our belief in the Lord from the academic into a relationship with him that touches the very soul of who we are. Grace impacts our heart like nothing else can and in this place our desires and emotions become free to express love, kindness and encouragement without the feeling of embarrassment. Here our marriage, our children and our relationships are refreshed in ways that cause us to praise and give thanks to the Lord. On this new day that has been given to you as a gift from the Lord, may you enjoy this freedom of his grace. May your heart be refreshed and encouraged along this new journey and may he then give to you the desires of your heart as you delight yourself in his grace. In this place there is no regret or sorrow.

Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, "Take off his filthy clothes." Then he said to Joshua, "See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put beautiful garments on you. Zechariah 3:3, 4Here we see a beautiful picture of God's grace towards us. Grace removes our filthy garments which is our own activities in sin, not some one else's. His grace cleanses, refreshes and renews our soul, our mind and our body, and notice without any condemnation or shame. What our Lord does in and through Jesus the Christ brings a delightful blessing to us as well as those around us. In this place our life becomes new again and we find ourselves in a place of great joy. On this new day may you be blessed with this beautiful garment of grace that is yours. Feel free to encourage, to renew, to delight in and bless your family, your friends and those around you with words, tones and expressions of grace. In this place there is no regret. Enjoy!

So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better. Colossians 1:9,10 NLTThe beauty of God's grace that has been given in and through Jesus the Christ is the freshness it gives to faith. When faith in God is very much alive in us, we find ourselves in a place where our emotions and thoughts bring delight to us, as well as those who are around us. In this place you will not find irritations, worry, anxiety and all the nasty forms of lust. Here, grace becomes the blessing to our family and the healing of emotional wounds begin to take place. In the Word of God this is called - Good Fruit. Let his grace through faith allow you the joy of knowing him better and better. On this new day may you know for sure that his will for you is good. It is designed to delight you, to delight your family, to delight your co-workers and to delight your community. May you live in this grace that is called freedom for you and yours.
