Grace and Growth

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?
