Accustomed to His
You can buy it in a grocery
store, a drug store, the mall, from a street vendor, at a baseball game
and in a school cafeteria. It comes in red, pink, brown, white, white with
black specks, green, green with black specks, and orange. It is very cold,
but sometimes people put hot stuff on top of it.
It will make you fat if you
eat too much, it can give you a headache if you eat it too fast, it will
hurt your teeth if you have any cavities, it can clog your arteries of
the old and promote blemishes on the young.
You can get it by the gallon,
quart, pint or cup. Some people use a cone to hold it, others put it on
top of a banana, others melt it with milk and drink it through a straw.
What is it? Ice Cream of
course. I scream, you scream, we all scream for . . . we'll you know the
rest I'm sure.
Words cannot adequately describe
the taste, texture and feelings that correspond to eating an ice cream
cone on a hot summer day. Some things are best left to experience.
Grace? Yea, I can define
it--God's unmerited favor. I can distinguish it from mercy--grace is getting
what you don't deserve, mercy is not getting what you do deserve. I can
sing about it--"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound . . ." These
exercises are routine and lifeless compared to walking in His grace..
My own grace experiences
leaves me wanting more. So I pray,
Help me Lord to look past
my needs to see my sins.
So I'll not be satisfied
with the way things have been.
Help me peel back my pride
and admit I'm to blame.
Let me know your forgiveness,
release me from my shame.
Let me Brush next to your
glory, let me see your face.
Fill me Lord, Anoint me Lord,
drench me with your grace.
So I can fight the good fight,
and run the good race.
Let me have your blessings,
pour them out in this place.
It is easy to become accustomed
to God's grace. Take time to thank God for His grace in your life. Is there
someone you need to show God's grace to? If so, then think of a way that
you can be God's grace in action.
