A mother of two thriving on God’s grace, everyday.
As I was starting 2021, I spent some quality time in introspection. I admitted that I had witnessed, first hand, God’s favour sustain me and my loved ones through the tough pandemic season and entering into the new year felt like we were now emerging into better and even advanced graces which God had already laid on a large beautiful table for us to experience, in 2021. Seeing me in 2021 is a great testimony, not just because of the pandemic, but also as a woman who has seen tough days, and seen God come, so boldly, through for me; I can say that the philosophy of my life is and will always be summarized in this Sunday school rhyme;
Jesus loves me
This I know
For the Bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong
They are weak but he is strong.
These words hit me deep as they played over and over gain in my mind. Why else would God keep me around if it was not to experience the love that is displayed for me? I spent a better part of me sure that I was unlovable, not even by God; in those moments of private personal darkness I found the passionate unequalled unchanging love of God that no philosophy could explain. And I want to spend 2021 in the reality of the assurance that in my zillion weaknesses and imperfections, Jesus still loves me. And in the knowledge that loving me is a choice that he made.
Grace with Evidence.
I want to listen to more experiences of God’s love and display them here as proof that accepting that love is the most basic, yet life-changing favor we can do for ourselves. May we open our eyes and hearts to the life that Jesus has for us.
