God said to me, as I worshiped Him today, I dont bless you because you are good, I bless you because I love you.

Gods grace is an amazing miracle. It seems backwards sometimes to give something wonderful to someone who has not worked hard to earn their own way. But, God gives to His children good gifts.

Matthew 7:11 says, If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!

Today I struggled to understand what grace really means. My heart said this:

Grace

Unmerited, unearned.
Not because you are good,
Not because you pray for 2 hours a day,
Not because you read and study daily,
Even if you fail,
Even if you cry and are weak,
Even if you forsake me,
I never change.
I always love.
I always reach out to you.
Are you noticing me yet?

I noticed God today in the warmth of the sun and the beauty in my flowering pots and in the tiny newborn kittens on my back porch. I noticed He wants me to know He loves me no matter what, just because, just like that. What more can He do to let me know? He said it all when He sent His beloved only son to die for me. I choose to acknowledge and thank Him with all my heart. His grace truly is amazing!
