Caught in the Hands of Grace

My kitchen is dirty again. That tends to happen after cooking breakfast. The laundry – ha! The laundry is so bad that it is a laugh or cry situation. I must choose to laugh at the overflowing hampers and bits of outfits strewn throughout my house (why does this happen?)because really, I don’t have time to cry about it. That takes to much energy. Let’s not even talk about dusting and floors. The conference I went to last weekend was AWESOME. The current state of my home is not. I am beginning to feel overwhelmed. Why did I get out of the boat? I can’t remember. How am I going to get this all done and push through the barriers of my comfort zone without having an all out nervous breakdown? I was going to go to Zumba yesterday but took a 3 hour nap instead. Yes, you read that right- 3 hours. Hm, I think I was tired.

It is going to take a few practical miracles to get through today.
Good thing I believe in a miracle creating God.

I am not going to get everything done. I am shooting for getting done what is most necessary. Good thing I know that it is not my performance that pleases God but my faith.

Good thing that when I step out of the boat and begin to sink, my Savior is there ready to catch me with the His wonderful, faithful hands of grace.

But when Peter saw the wind, he was afraid. He began to sink. He cried out, “Lord! Save me!” Right away Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. ”
(Matthew 14:30, 31 NIRV)

Yup- it is going to have to be God’s grace today. I already feel better. Love you, my friend. I hope you have a wonderful day and grab onto the hands of grace to walk through it.

I love to hear from you! I am blessed by every comment and like. That little “like” button with the thumbs up lets me know you connected with the words today- or at least laughed at them.
Thank you!!!

    My little sister I am so blessed to be saved by Grace and not by my works as are you too. Take a minute a smell some flowers, hug your boys and let the washing machine do it’s thing. Rest in our Lord and tend to things in due time. We are blessed to have your family in our lives. Marc

    Cindy, thank you again for your open heart, these are just the words I needed to read today. God does give us his helping hand in our sinking moments, you are an inspiration to me on how you are stepping out of the boat.

I love to hear from you and appreciate every comment!
