I am taking a slight break from the A to Z challenge to participate in a different sort of challenge, one that I need for my soul. The challenge comes from Jordyn of She Who Fears, and the link up is entitled Grace Upon Grace. The idea is to share four evidences of the grace of God in your life, which is something I need to do on a daily basis!
1. Far from home God has provided me with friends and a community to keep me from being alone. He has shown me to a church so that I will not lose my way while away, and given me the courage to actively participate. He has also given me friends to hang out with so that I don’t wallow in loneliness in my apartment alone. Normally I would rather just stay home rather than be social, but I have felt less scared of going out and have been very thankful for that!
2. God led me to an amazing husband who has been incredibly supportive even from a distance while I am away for work. I love being able to tell D anything, and know that he is supportive of me in all that I do. I have been having a rough week dealing with the distance, but D has been there for me through the ups and downs. It is really difficult to be so far away for months at a time, but the time is flying and I don’t feel that the distance has hurt us a bit. It’s not ideal, but God has seen to it that we are able to communicate across the distance.
3. The weather lately has been gorgeous, and I am so excited for it to be truly spring! The flowers are blooming and the birds are singing, and I feel as though I am surrounded by God’s love every time I go outside.
4. Last but not least, this past Good Friday and Easter were the best in my memory. I never liked going to Good Friday services because it was too painful, but this year was great. It was a great reminder of the sacrifice Jesus made in order to wash me clean of my sins. Then come Easter… He is Risen!!! Such an amazing sign of His grace! I don’t know that I can put it into words how much this means to me.
How has His Grace shown in your life today?
