“For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.” — John 1:16
This scripture has been in my heart since last month and it’s been quite a month.We received news that 3 of our loved ones have passed away (separate occasions) in a month. Work has been stressful, causing my back/shoulder pain and random cries out of frustration and anxiety. It’s quite a lot to handle, to process. Stress makes me irritable, ungrateful and just really tired of dealing with anyone. I can also take out my anger on someone or snap at them. Sometimes that someone is Lendl, and he calls me out in a loving way. So when I catch myself in that moment, I pray. I stop to give God a quick shout and ask for grace.
Because grace is exactly what I need. And it’s even harder to admit that when we’re proud, who God opposes (James 4:6).
John 1:16 strongly resonates with me as I’ve become more aware of God’s grace these past few weeks. It humbles me that though I’ve failed many times and probably more in the future, God always gives grace and wraps me in His love through Jesus Christ. We are all undeserving sinners in need of His grace every moment, and Christ from His fullness, gives us an abundance of grace. His grace has saved us. His grace is sufficient. His grace is amazing.
