A Thought: That Which Goes Before You.
As we begin the day, I find myself thinking about what has already taken place in order for me to live a good day today. God has raised the sun; the birds have raised their song; and I have raised my cup of coffee! People are risking their lives so I can be confident and drive my car to work in safety. Inventors spent many hours so I can more conveniently get to work; use my cell phone; use my computer in an office built with lighting and air conditioning. These are just a few of the blessings given by those who have gone before. But the greatest blessing is in the GRACE which goes before me. God is preparing people in my path today who will practice the Grace of understanding and compassion. God is filling my heart with Grace and love to offer to others today. Grace which goes before us is God’s mercy in our mistakes and God’s forgiveness in our repentance. May God’s Grace be received AND given by us all!
Happy Thursday to each of you!
