A Throne of Grace

Paul approached God’s throne, and the Lord answered “My grace is all you need (2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT).”

Eleven years later, Paul, or someone who knew his story, wrote this, “Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16 ESV).”

God’s throne is a throne of grace because that’s what we can be certain God will give when we pray.

A Grandmother’s Joy

Mine.

God has given me ten grandchildren;
six granddaughters and four grandsons
I love them so.

Each one a priceless treasure
A blessing, a gift
I am grateful.

My greatest hope
And constant prayer

Is for all my grandchildren
To know unending, steadfast, perfect love.

God’s.

We are eagerly awaiting the birth of our eleventh grandchild sometime this fall.

When an Idea Doesn’t Make Sense

I was in food store. A thought flashed across my mind, “Buy celery.” I argued in my head. We don’t like celery.” The thought came again. “Buy celery.” I argued again. “When I buy celery, we throw most of it away.”

My young daughter came home with a note from her teacher. “Can you please send celery to school tomorrow?”

I learned a lesson that day. When an idea or thought just doesn’t make sense, it could be from God.
