The Daily Breath of God

May those who hope in you not be disgraced because of me, O Lord, the LORD Almighty; may those who seek you not be put to shame because of me. Psalm 69:6Being self-focused seems to be what is common to us naturally from our birth. We can see this in children being raised in the same family. But what is natural to grace is a desire in our emotions and our thinking that wants to bless and encourage others. The gift of grace brings delight in that we are aware of the impact our words, our tones, our expressions and even our desires have on the people around us. There is no stress, anxiety or regret with attitudes of grace that are heard and seen. An life of grace lightens our load so that the joy of others is important to us and in fact down right refreshing. This is a great day to rejoice knowing the impact you have on your family, your friends, your co-workers and even those who do not like you because of the power of our Lord’s grace in you. Your attitudes and actions can rekindle hope in some of the most difficult places. Let the freedom of his grace have its way in you. Enjoy!
