grace..."God's favor"

She laid on the floor in my room while I was taking a shower....
I heard her sniffles when I got out............I asked her what was wrong and she said that she didn't know.....that it was God......and she was the worried!

I stand the still and ask her why is she scared? She tells me that she the afraid that she want go to heaven......because of her sins.
I take her into my arms and she cries the hard and I tell her that it is OK.......that she is saved by His Grace!
It's through our own children that we can sometimes read our own fears.......I take her precious face in my hands and tell her of His amazing Grace....and how her name is grace= which means God's favor!
I tell her how I have not done the right......through all the living tired....and the trying to keep the everything moving that I have failed to tell her just how much our heavenly Father LOVES US.

 I tell her:
It's all about His perfect love for you.......
Sin only exposes us............every human being is born a sinner!
It's all about the blood! The blood of Christ makes us acceptable to God.
The enemy wants nothing more but to keep us in bondage.
His precious blood covers our sins!
The very essence of who God is = GOODNESS.

 Isaiah 54:17;
 no weapon forged against you will prevail,
and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
and this is their vindication from me,”
declares the LORD.

 Romans 8:39;
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I smile as I explain the ugly war that goes on deep inside our souls, that sometimes the old us can try and resurrect! But those nail scarred hands will never let us go and its the dying of the flesh that is daily!
I watch as she drys her tears.................I swell with holy joy knowing that the father is catching her tears as they fall. I raise my hand...... the held high kind after she had gone to her room and I praised God for I saw humility in her....knowing the humble will see the Lord! I praise him for her soul is growing.........she is the called!
My swelling over with holy joy is accompanied by my falling tears.
God is so Good...knowing that grace leads the way and telling her the meaning of her name......."God's favor," and she can rest assured she is His.

all of grace,
