what to do with grace

tangible grace.

God is sweet like that.

tangible grace.

that undeserved gift that you can feel with your fingers.

tangible grace.

it’s left on your doorsteps in the form of chocolate goodness.

tangible grace.


tangible grace.

{hum your cell phone chime here}

message appears on your screen and you are being thought of in the moment.

{hum your cell phone chime here again}

another message appears on your screen and you begin to think you’re really not alone.

tangible grace.

people praying. holding you up.


remember Moses’ having issues with God telling him to go to the most powerful human in the known world?

asking Pharaoh to set the Israelites free?

God didn’t have to, but He gave Moses two tangible graces.

his brother {to go with him} and a staff {that stick}.


what do you do with the grace you've been given?

let's agree that we receive far better than what we deserve.

Jesus gave His all so that you and i can live in a personal relationship with Him.


God doesn’t have to, but He is giving us tangible graces.

these tangible graces seem most appreciated when the faith gap is the widest.


there’s a big, rather large, watering hole between me and my little girl.

that’s just geographically.

what God has called us to do {that’s adoption – His heart for the orphans}

and our limited human power {that’s us}

leaves quite a bit, rather large, bit of a gap…

for Him to move.

but only God can fill it. only God can make this family of 6 complete.

my pastor husband does it again, and, as if i were the only one in the room, tells me to thank God for the limits i have.

that i can’t do it all. that i don’t have what it takes.

but He can. He can fill the gap. and in the waiting, He lavishes tangible grace.

be a gift of tangible grace today.

receive tangible grace.

and give thanks to the Giver and Creator of it all.

for when that tangible grace comes to you, the giver and receiver

“…will be glad in heart.” {Exodus 4.14}

that's what we do with grace.

receive it. give it. offer thanks for it.
