“When we arrive at the place, we will find the grace!” — Joyce Meyer (Straight Talk).
Is it obvious by now that she is one of my favorite writers? Yep. But how true this is! She also wrote that when we are grieving a loss, we receive enough grace for one day. I really hate the “one day at a time” mentality. I keep thinking, ‘when will there come a time where I don’t have to live like that?’
The truth is, I think every day is like that, for our whole lives. Lots of people see that in a good way – living in the moment. I see it as kind of depressing. But as Christians we know we are only promised this moment!
Here’s something Dawna Markova wrote:
I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid,
more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance, to live so that which came to me as a seed
goes to the next as blossom, and that which came to me as blossom
goes on as fruit.
Let’s blossom and be fruitful today!
