Saving Grace


We all want to be safe, right? Safe from all harm and evil; safe from bad judgement and poor decisions; safe from Satan’s wily ways. That’s where saving grace comes in. Although it doesn’t eliminate the former, it makes those things easier to deal with. Here are a few examples of how to come by this saving grace:

Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved – you and your household. Acts 16:31

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8

For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. Titus 2:11

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

But we believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they also are.” Acts 15:11

In closing, here is a little prayer for the day: “God grant me the grace to live this day in your strength.”

Happy Sunday.

Fear No Evil


There was a recent incident in my life which could have caused me fear and the need for protection. I felt neither. Instead, I made a conscious decision to support the person involved and later prayed for confirmation that the right decision had been made. Within minutes a flock of five blue jays appeared in my yard. That seemed strange because I rarely see a blue jay. I googled that bird and read:

This bird may symbolize protection and fearlessness. If blue jays appear in your life you will feel safe and protected.

Confirmation received with thanks. Happy Sunday.
