The thought for today is grace. Grace is the free and unmerited favor of God, which assures us of His love, protection, mercy and blessing. Sometimes when life is not going well for us, or we have situations that we do not really understand. It can be hard to see God’s grace in the midst. However, this weekend as I had the opportunity to converse with someone who was incarcerated; yet they were able to maintain an upbeat, positive outlook on life. I was reminded that grace is always present in our lives; regardless of the circumstances. As they had acknowledge in the past, it was only God’s grace that allows them to maintain such an attitude. So today may you still yourself and take the time to notice all the moments of God’s grace being displayed in your life.
