Day -26 ‘Favorite Thing About Me’ #bloganuary2022
I’m not sure when or why. Maybe it’s motherhood. Possibly it’s because of the times I’ve failed miserably. Could be that I have come to embrace the fact that I am inherently fractured – flawed. Probably it is the amazing privilege I’ve been afforded to cross paths with so many people from various countries, ethnicities and people groups. Not too sure why, but I have learned to extend extra grace to those who share my world.
People don’t always have it all together. They have had to quit at times. They hurt – they fall apart. They get angry when they feel helpless. They don’t always have the answer to their heart’s problems. They struggle with fears and insecurities. They are as fragile as I am at times. Sometimes we all need a little grace and mercy.
That is one thing I have come to love about me. I have learned the meaning of grace. I do my best to pour it out – to offer it to those who may appear undeserving. The truth be told …I have been undeserving and unworthy a time or two.
I welcome this better version of me.

Every single time that God has extended His amazing, mind-blowing grace and His endless mercy to me, I have been totally undeserving. But that is exactly what grace and mercy is. His grace allows Him to give to us what we do not deserve (love, forgiveness, patience…) and His mercy allows Him to not give to us what we do deserve (punishment…). What an amazing God!
I try to remember that in my dealings and interactions with others
