I have been learning a lot about GRACE. Loving the people who are hard to love and not trying to fix them, just showing them GRACE. I love this by Gandhi: “An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.” I love this by Jesus even more: “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the pank in your own eye?” Matthew 7:3 Great thoughts for a beautiful weekend…….
WOW!!! I needed to read this today…..
So often when people make mistakes, they get down on themselves and think, “If only…” “I should have…” “What if…?” It’s easy to feel like you’ve missed the best plan for your life. That’s when people get discouraged and stop pursuing their God-given dreams. But understand today, just because you’ve made a mistake or failed in some way doesn’t cancel God’s plan. God never disqualifies you. He never says, “Go sit on the sidelines. You’ve blown it too many times. You’ve got too many weaknesses.” No, God always gives you another chance!
Some of the great people in the Bible made very poor choices. The apostle Paul started off as a murderer, yet his destiny was bigger than his mistakes. He ended up becoming a great leader and writing over half of the New Testament.
What am I saying? Our mistakes, our failures, our poor choices don’t have to keep us from our God-given destiny. With God, it’s not about the way you start in life, it’s about the way you finish. Receive His grace today and embrace the bright future He has in store for you! Joel Osteen
