Three things I think God was trying to tell me yesterday:
- “My grace is enough for you.”
God’s grace is enough to cover where I fall short, and to accept me the way I am, and He gives it freely. He is not waiting for me to become the person I want to measure up to my standards or His in order to love me.
“Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded in all the more.” ~Romans 5:20
- True beauty is in the soul of a person.
Try seeing others’ beauty in the deepest part of the person, see past their beauty or lack thereof. A woman’s or a man’s soul is truly beautiful if it is a heart after God’s.
“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.” ~Proverbs 31:30
- Again, wait.
Like my ceaseless striving, trying to make something happen the way I want it isn’t the best idea. I need to wait on God’s timing and trust that He will let things fall into place the way they’re supposed to and happen at the right time. Sometimes I need to respond to the situation at hand first rather than try to take things into my own hands to make something I think I want happen.
“I waited patiently for the Lord, and he heard my cry.”
