This devotional showed me something very clear- If I really realise everyday, that I am in His great debt because of His love and forgiveness .....then doesn't all, everything....becomes a gift?
It is something I need to remind myself...in every moment God is there and somehow we can be thankful for everything. We can. We can because He has given us everything in Christ alone. And everything else- is a gift that we do not deserve.
We deserve nothing but He gives us everything.
I deserve nothing, death. But He gave me everything, life.
That is grace.
Being empty, like an empty container- makes us seekers, hunters of glory, of beauty, of grace.
I need to hunt, find grace- beauty to fill the emptiness.
I want to be a beauty-hunter.
"For those who can see, the worlds beauty outweighs its burdens. Its grace greater then its grime."
I need to ask myself;
"What will I look for to outweigh everything? Who will I look to, to outweigh everything?"
The answer is Jesus. He is who and what I look to to outweigh everything.
