First Post to start the day
Well, here goes what may end up being a long line of posts. Today I am in awe of God's amazing grace. I chose Daughter of Grace as my blog name because if I didn't have God's grace every day I would not be breathing. I would be so lost and truly alone. I am at a point in my life where all my friends and family with the exception of those much younger than me are married, having kids, and moving on in their lives. I am tempted often to be discouraged, wonder what is wrong with me, and feel so lonely, but then I remember God is always there and He has a greater plan for me and it gives me such hope, joy, and excitement to see what the future holds. I truly wish I could keep those emotions all the time, but I have discovered that if following the Lord Jesus Christ was all easy and joyful we would have major issues. Rather, following Him and finding our contentment and joy in Him is a choice no matter what we feel. A decision made every day when we climb out of bed. "Choose for yourselves THIS DAY whom you will serve" I feel the Lord drawing me closer and closer to Him and to know that I can entrust my life to the most loving and gentle yet strong and firm Being takes my breath away and I can only glimpse His majesty. How exciting is that? Here I hope to write a journey of drawing closer to God and seeing His hand work in my life and the lives of those around me. Thanks for coming on this journey with me. Blessings to you all!!
