It's been years since I first heard about God's grace, acceptance and unconditional love.
Yet I find that reading about that grace and love still makes me cry.
I guess it shows how powerful this message is, how true it is, and how much my heart needs it.
Here are some grace thoughts that have been going through my heart and mind and touching me in deep ways lately:
God made us, not so we could give Him glory, but so He could give us love.
Even when everything is all wrong, deep down everything is all right.
Even if I'm all wrong, I'm all right to God.
God always loved us and always shall love us.
We were always His adorable little innocent ones.
God can't see any sin in us! We're perfect darlings to Him.
My true nature, that I've always had, is good and loving. I take after my Dad, Mr. Love Himself!
He loved us so much He became a human, so He could share every part of our life with us!
I"m part of God, in God, held by God, and therefore always safe.
The universe is a good place because a good God is at its heart. He made it, He sustains it, and He will bring it to perfect fulfillment.
At the heart of it all, everything is ok and always will be okay.
God always wears a smile, always lends a helping hand, always gives an encouraging word.
God wanted to show us He was non-threatening, so He came as a tiny baby to show us we have nothing to fear from Him.
God is vulnerable and sweet, gentle and friendly.
God has no wrath. He is perfect peace, the opposite of wrath.
God does not punish. God heals and restores.
God does not destroy. God is the author of life, not death!
God never demanded our perfection. God has no demands at all of me. God simply accepts and embraces me as I am.
I am totally and fully accepted. I am accepted with all my shadows. I am accepted without any possibility of being rejected. I am accepted now and forevermore.
He is fine with me as I am! I'm perfect to God.
God is delighted with His child - me! He sings over me and loves to just look at me. I'm His pride and joy!
I am a beautiful and awesome person. God is pleased with me right now, as I am in this moment.
God says, "What sin? I see no sin in you. You are beautiful and there is no flaw in you."
At the heart of it all is a grace that embraces us, carries us and isn't going to let us go.
There is a lightness to God's love and grace. He makes our inner heart light. It's the lightness and joy of heaven and we'll enjoy it forever!
