Grace just is
Grace is unmerited favor: the favor that is ours simply because God in His love bestows it on us, and the favor we then offer freely to others because we ourselves have no need to demand a return.
WHAT IS GRACE?
Grace is peace with PA-ZAZ, to me. However we all have our own definition of certain words. With my travels for 3yrs now I have noticed that words may have different meanings to individuals. For an example; I am from Brooklyn NY I would use a. “book bag” for school. As I got older I would use the “book bag” to describe “back packs”. When I was in Mexico I was shopping and translated book bag, not only did they misunderstand me but the Americans I was traveling with also did not understand what I was speaking about. BACK PACK was the “universal” word. However because of my previous experience book bag meant back pack for me. Other words that have different means depending the state are: Pop/Soda, Sneakers/Tennis Shoes etc.
With that being sad “GRACE” universal meaning is having elegance, however can you have grace without peace? 🙂
Well first of all. Intentionally veiled. So the question begs a degree of conjecture. I speak of its definitive being. That we speak of it at all is its presence in our lives…its unmistakable effect. And while we do not control it, it is something we must acquiesce to for it to be manifest on our lives on some level. I often write here metaphorically as I am a storyteller. Grace is observable in my opinion. A flurry of birds, hundreds of them alternatively climbing and diving, darting one direction and then another….a school of fish…they are working together (the individual will is secondary to the will of the group) and they are guided by something bigger than them.
Grace is a praying mantis moving on a leaf.
Grace is a frail elder tenderly speaking with their grandchild (or great grandchild).
Grace is the huge guy in the parking lot of Walmart today, turning back to offer to let me pet his puppy, tenderly cradled in his arm.
Grace is looking up at the beautiful night sky, and knowing you are not alone, and you are loved.
Grace is letting that beauty and love spill over.
“Grace is the ability to redefine the boundaries of possibility”
Gads! Words are inadequate to describe it. This is not “the” definition but from my experience:)
It is that gift that allows you to be more than just human. It allows Divine love to flow through you activating your gift of “divinity” and with the consent of your will, allows you to go beyond yourself in experience, thought or action.
It can also create a peace in the “soul” when there is turmoil or fear.
It is a gift – a form of Divine Love.
PS – My hubby walked in and I told him I was answering my Gratitude question about what is Grace, and he said “Its me – I AM your Grace” – though trying to be funny I saw some truth in that:)
Grace is divine and scared love that is given with no strings attached. Don and SK both said it beautifully.
In my direct experience:
The very warp and weft of the weaving of the Divine fabric itself by the Creator;
The Creator’s awareness and attention to the detail of this unfolding creation;
From the perfection of the invisible through to the swirling of super clusters of galaxies and beyond;
The very being – I am here, you are here, we are here. Love.
Unmerited, continuous love from God. We cannot earn it, pay it back nor do we deserve it. Yet, there it is every single morning a gift just for us.
I couldn’t put it any better. My feelings exactly
Grace is knowing God made you so you can praise Him.
Grace is letting go of what I think needs to happen and letting things be.
I like that:)
Grace for me is like showing mercy. Walking in forgiveness. Surrendering. Acceptance. Being thankful and open.
