Morning Motivation;Sharing God’s Grace and Mercy

I am reading several devotionals at one time.  Not that I am consistent in my reading of any of them, but  I  attempt to read a few pages daily to try to find God’s will for me.  One of my favorites is “Glimpses of God’s Grace”  by Anita Donahue. Anita speaks of stepping out on faith and passing on God’s mercy and grace.

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
2 Corinthians 12:9

This scripture was one of my support scriptures during “the beginning” of the knowledge that my husband was leaving me.  I was extremely weak, and I needed grace, and I needed God’s comfort.  He did lift me up, and slowly, very slowly I began to strengthen.

For those of you in “the beginning” of this process hold on tightly to this scripture because I can promise you it is true.  Please don’t give up or give in to fear, which is so easy to do.  If you are in the process of “the journey” of divorce and all the unknowns that come along with it keep putting one foot in front of the other and know that His “grace is sufficient for you.”

I believe, like Anita, that we can pass on God’s mercy and grace.  We can share our testimony with others on the same path and give them hope.  To me, this would be “the joy” in the process.   God is giving us the gift to help others on this rocky path. Thank you, God, for the opportunity.

God Bless!

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
