It is so easy to look at people celebrating their big wins on social media with the hashtag #childofgrace and think God’s grace is only for some special people, but the truth is, if you are here living and breathing, grace is yours too.
Do you remember when you found the strength to forgive someone who hurt you? That was grace.
Do you remember that song you stumbled on that helped you heal from a broken heart? That was grace.
Do you remember that stranger that helped you when you were stranded? That was grace.
Do you remember when you escaped what could have been a fatal injury? That was grace.
Do you remember that solution you got to a problem you have been battling with? That was grace.
Do you remember the pain in your body that suddenly disappeared? That was grace.
Do you remember when you got that opportunity you applied for even when you had given up? That was grace.
Do you remember when you got a piece of information that changed your life for better? That was grace.
Do you remember that time your needs were met in ways you did not even expect? That was grace.
Do you remember that thing you thought was going to destroy you made you stronger? That was grace.
You know that thing you are so gifted at doing better than other people? That is grace.
Even going out and coming home to lay your head down at the end of this day is grace.
If you look closely at your life, you will see that there have been many times like these that you received special assistance or guidance beyond your efforts and knowledge. They were not based on how good you are, or how much sacrifice you have made, they were unearned favour given to you freely, sometimes before you even asked.
God’s grace is for us all, how and when it shows up for each person may differ but it is not only for some special people.
Wake up every day in the consciousness of and in gratitude for the grace that is available to you.
Let go of doubts, let go of fear, let go of comparisons, open up your heart and embrace God’s ever-present grace.
Be courageous to live, dream and pursue opportunities. Ask, seek and knock, knowing that there is a power higher than you able to watch out for you, make way for you and send help your way.

Thank you for reading. Starting in April 2020, I will be sending emails once or twice a month. They are short, straight-to-the-point, and written as honestly and real as if I am having a conversation with you over a nice cup of coffee – no judgments, no prejudices, just life-giving soul to soul conversations.
