Quiet Moments With God - Grace

This morning began with outrage. I was furious - ready to pounce and make sure that a certain somebody knew how outraged I was. And then I read a beautiful devotion, given to me from a friend, but it's really from God. I know it's from Him because it was placed in front of my eyes at just the right moment and so gently reminded me of  God's  . . .


Grace was given by God. I do not deserve it. He should be outraged with me. He could have pounced. He did not. He could have banished me to an eternity without Him. He did not. 

Instead he offered grace. 

"God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can't take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago."

Ephesians 2:8 - 10

Thank you Father for your mercy and love. Thank you for making me brand new. I don't deserve it. 

Grace and peace to you from God,


I recommend this link to any and all  -


  1. Praise God for His grace and mercy. He extends it to us so freely and how often we are so stingy with extending our own mercy and grace to others. I have to pray everyday for God's forgiveness and to help me be more merciful and gracious to others.

  2. I'm praying Julia. I sure need it.

    I want to be like Jesus, full of mercy, but some days it's really a challenge. So thankful He's merciful with me.
