“Grace and peace be yours in abundance
through the knowledge of God and our Lord Jesus Christ”
This is a departure from this month’s planned topic. I found a section in that writing journal I rediscovered that spoke to my heart. I hope you benefit from these thoughts as much as I have.
Grace, God’s unmerited love-or receiving something we don’t deserve. It comes to us as a gift when we ask Jesus into our hearts.
Peace, the presence and experience of a right relationship, a desire, a goal, and a gift from God. True peace belongs to those who turn away from their sin and ask the Father’s forgiveness.
Peter tells us we can have these gifts in abundance when we have an intimate relationship with God through His Son. I need to possess these qualities in my life as I write for Him and as I communicate with other people. I desire God’s help in the way I present myself especially when I face harsh circumstances not of my choosing.
