G – Grace: a Gift from God.
Posted On 08/25/2017 22:59:17 by yourchoice

I’ve been mulling over words for my ‘G’ blog, and these three words, Grace, God, and Gift kept coming back to mind, even during several sleepless nights. What can I write about something that is very dear to me, but may not be the same for others here on The Hill.

I am not a gospel preacher, I don’t call myself a Christian (that word has been spoiled by and for too many people), but I am an avid follower of Jesus, God’s Son. I know that God loves me even more than I will ever understand, and that love was shown by God's grace... the undeserved gift of His Son who willing gave his life as a payment for our sins (we are ALL guilty).

If you have read the “About Me” on my page, you will have already learned that about me. The following quote is from the modern translation of the Holy Bible, called ‘The Voice”. If you are not familiar with that, come to my page and follow the link to more more about it.

 8-9 For it’s by God’s grace that you have been saved. You receive it through faith. It was not our plan or our effort. It is God’s giftpure and simple. You didn’t earn it, not one of us did, so don’t go around bragging that you must have done something amazingEphesians 2:8, 9 (from “The Voice”)

Excellant Blog Mona. I agree with all you have written. Even though there have been many 'rough' and painful things happen to me over the years....I know that I have so much to be grateful for and quietly thank God everyday not once but many times for all he has done for me and all that I have. 

Ironically, one of my favourite sayings is 'There but for the Grace of God go I'. My Auntie Eileen (who I wrote about in my baking Blog)  had a favourite saying whenever she lost something and on finding it would say "i must have done something good to deserve this'.
