After a sorta rough week at work, it is the perfect time for me to sit down and think back on the grace that God has shown just in the past week. Shout out to Jordyn at She Who Fears for setting this up!
1. I had a particularly stressful work week, but God showed me how strong a support network I have but also how strong I am. I worry a lot about what people think, so when I get challenged that I am not good at something it really hurts me. It hurts me and it makes me angry. And both of those feelings flared up this week, but they didn’t last long. After only an hour or two of being frustrated and angry, I realized that in the end it didn’t really matter. Normally I will be upset and stressed about it for days. But God gave me the grace to just let it all go, and He showed me that I have amazing coworkers and family that will stand up for me, even if it is just reassuring me.
2. D and I had a few wonderful talks this week about our future. Talking about jobs, and kids and moving into a house, and just lots of awesome stuff in general. It was really nice to connect with him even though we’re far apart, and it was nice to be able to talk about our future and see where we’re still on the same page, and where we differ slightly. It makes me smile just thinking back on our talks.
3. I had a wonderful chat with my mom this week. We don’t chat very often so it is always nice to be able to talk to her, and even better when I can see her thanks to Skype. It was really nice to catch up.
4. There have been several lightbulb moments for me this week, I don’t know if I can explain them accurately here but I have realized just how much I have grown in the past few months. God has given me such strength and courage, and he is transforming me in little ways. I love this journey that He is taking me on!
How has His grace shown itself in your life this week?
