What does it mean?

What does it mean when everything around you appears to be going up in flames and you remain standing strong?What does it mean when even as things get worse your optimism grows? How does it happen that even though you know a certain burden will be part of your life for years to come that instead of weighing you down it allows you to reach great heights? What does it mean when despite your failures you see how much you’ve grown? How can it be that your teenager rages against you and you manage (just barely) to respond with patience and service? How does it happen that when you are pinching your pennies until they bleed and humiliation has been poured upon you that you are not broken? And what about when you lose someone and you still find a reason to wake up everyday and breathe life in? How do you wrestle against physical pain, day after day, but each day still somehow fills you with wonder and thanksgiving? When someone hurts you again and again where do you get strength?

The forces around you seek to tear you apart and you hear a voice that says, “It will not take place. It will not happen.” What does this mean? What do they call it?

They call it GRACE. Get some. It’s free… you just have to ask. You will soar on wings like eagles.

    The eagles’ wings grow strong by lifting up heavy fish from the lake. Our own wings of grace grow stronger by the continue exercise of grace itself.

    and for we, your readers, it means blessings by your sharing of gifts in the form of words, words that are rays of sunshine from God.

      Thank you so much for your words. My time and my energy sometimes seem to be tapped out, and I wonder if it is all worth it. If I know I’m an instrument of God’s light in someone’s life then it gives me the strength and courage to soldier on. Bless you!
