God provides us with a measure of grace each and every day, to face hardships, to grant us patience and forgiveness, to strengthen us in a time of temptation....but most importantly God's grace delivers us from the bondage of our sins by enabling us to trust in Christ as Savior. I am encouraged by this description of grace from D. Scott Meadows' booklet, "God's Astounding Grace" and pray that it might be a blessing to you as well:
"The word grace is a kind of shorthand for the whole sum of unmerited blessings, which come to men through Jesus Christ. Primarily, it describes what we, for want of a better expression, have to call a "disposition" in the Divine nature; and it means the unconditioned, undeserved, spontaneous, eternal, stooping, pardoning love of God."
Amen and Amen! Surely, God's free gift of grace can cause us to sing His praises each and every day! We pray that our challenges are a blessing to you and ask that if you'd like to create a "Grace" themed project to leave a comment on the SALT blog, with a link back to your gallery or blog, so that we might share and rejoice with you!
Project details: This is the first time I covered one of those nifty $1.00 finds from my local craft mega store. I confess that I wish the finished piece was a bit "fancier" but once I got that lovely Crate paper on the front I just couldn't cover it up! :-)
Enjoy and Happy, Blessed Creating!!
