Grace In Action
Corinthians 12:9a And He said "Mt grace is sufficient for you"
Give yourself a moment we are human, so it’s normal to be upset when things don’t go as planned. Grieve, and then, when the time comes, move on. If it takes you longer than it takes someone else be okay with that. God loves us all the same. Paul starts off Ephesians 2 by describing how God is rich in mercy and love. (v. 4) We are not a masterpiece because of anything we’ve done or who we are. It is all because of who Jesus is and His amazing grace. Acknowledge what didn't go as planned especially the things that you believe went good.
Understand sometimes mistakes happen, but that doesn’t mean you are a mistake. What didn’t go the way you wanted it to? Learn from it. “No matter how many times you trip them up, God-loyal people don’t stay down long; Soon they’re up on their feet …” (Proverbs 24:16, MSG). Celebrate what did go right. Peter in the Bible gets picked on a lot. One of those famous stories is in Matthew 14, when he saw Jesus walking on the water. We often focus on Peter sinking, but we don’t remember this part: “… Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus” (Matthew 14:29, NIV). No one else could say they walked on water, but Peter could! I encourage you encourage yourself this one is possibly most difficult because you don't want to feel as though you are boasting however
the second greatest commandment is to “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:31a, NIV). Pearl Woman, we don’t always love ourselves well, but we should! What would you tell your child, sister or friend if they messed up? perhaps its okay, we all mess up, do not give up, or even as the old saying if at first you succeed try and try again. Now tell yourself the same thing. If it is true for them, it is true for you, too. Give yourself grace ad believe.
