Grace; Giving or Receiving & Chocolate Chip Chickpea Bars

2 Corinthians 9:8(tpt)

Yes, God is more than ready to overwhelm you with every form of grace, so that you will have more than enough of everything—every moment and in every way. He will make you overflow with abundance in every good thing you do.

Read

During any time of challenge and change, I’m reminded that I’m not Superwoman. The go, go, go, do-it-all attitude only goes so far, and I realize that I do in fact require sleep, balance, and grace. I need grace.

For years, when I would come to this realization, I would say things like “I’m learning to give myself grace”, but I never really felt any better about it. I couldn’t figure out why this newly designated grace I’d decided to gift myself wasn’t doing anything for me.

It wasn’t until this move, and all of this new chaos in my life, that I learned that I don’t in fact need to give myself grace. I’m not capable of giving myself grace. It’s time to throw the grace that I give myself out the window for a new kind of grace. His grace.

The truth is that “giving myself grace” is just another way of trying to play God. In the times that my humanness shows, and I realize that I can’t do it all, I have an opportunity for humility. By attempting to give myself something that only God can give, I’m not moving any closer to that humility.

Times of struggle, challenge, and change can show us who we really are and what we’re really capable of when left to our own strength. And then we can turn to God for what we need, and allow ourselves to actually receive it.

Write

Have you ever really received God’s grace? Or do you find yourself frequently trying to solve the problems of life on your own?

Pray

For the gift of God’s grace to enter into your heart, mind, and life.
