Grace and Growth

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 10 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I’ve been thinking a lot about grace and growth; how and when I grow and how I’ve seen and experienced grace.

I believe that growth happens from the hard things we do in life. And granted: some things are harder for others, and thus you may not grow as much in areas where I find tremendous growth — and vice versa. That’s okay; we’re not all supposed to be the same. Growth occures when each of us reaches our own points in life where we have to make an actual decision…a conscientious choice.

Grace occurs when we attempt to grow, and we stumble — because we are not perfect. Grace is when someone else acknowledges that we tried, or are still trying, and continuing to love us anyway — even if what we did or thought was wrong: you are loved.

How awesome is that?

  1. I checked my email before leaving for church this morning and read Grace & Growth. It was a great way to start my day. I even took time to make a copy of it so I could share it with a few of my friends at church. I was late for bible study but showed it to the pastor as my reason to be late. He was impressed as was I. I myself have found that Grace is a gift which I never acknowledged until the pass few months and it has played a very important part in my growing! Blog just kind of reaffirmed it. Thank You, Love and Blessings, grandma Jo
