Flylady and Grace

April 29, 2010

Some days, I’m frustrated that I haven’t been totally focused on my Flylady routine. Some days, I’m frustrated that I haven’t been able to squeeze in time for creativity. Some days, I wish I made more time for Bible study and spiritual growth. Some days,….

Well, I think you get the picture. I can’t possibly focus my full attention on each and every aspect of my life each and every day of my life. And, some days, I’m frustrated by that.

But not today! Today, I’m rejoicing that I am an individual person, fearfully and wonderfully made by an Amazing Creator Who crafted me to be me. I’m grateful that He made me a multi-dimensional person with varied interests, gifts and bents. I’m grateful that He constantly challenges me to draw closer to Him by requiring of me trust in and obedience to Him. I’m grateful for His immeasurable love and GRACE. I’m SO grateful that there’s nothing I can do that will separate me from His love. If I never do another Flylady chore, God still loves me just as much as ever.

Grace. What an amazing, amazing concept. God extends His grace to me beyond my comprehension. He equips me to extend grace to others. And He urges me to extend grace to myself!

There will never be a day here on this earth in which I will be able to focus my full attention on each and every aspect of my life–my life given to me by an outrageously wonderful Creator–but I need not be frustrated. When I keep my heart focused on Him, I will be doing exactly what He wants me to be doing that day. He knows exactly who I am and what I need and in His love and mercy and graciousness, He guides me.

Amazing. Grace.
