Every Thursday Holly Mueller from Reading, Teaching, Learning, creates a place where readers can share their spiritual journeys. We are a small group, but the learning and sharing always inspires me.
When I read the topic for this week, I was worried once again. What can I possibly write about grace! Searching for some type of inspiration, I came across some things written by Beth Moore. The first post was titled The God of Again.
This post made me think about my journey and all of my stops and starts. That is when I realized that because God is a God of Again, He not only allows me to keep coming back to Him, but he keeps coming back to me...again and again. His grace reaches out to me in those pits, pulls me out, and leads me back onto the path where I need to be...back on my journey.
This journey has not been easy for me, and I know I have veered far off the path. My path may be different and it may have many restarts, but it is mine. Looking back at where I have been is just as important as to where I am going. I know that it is grace from the God of Again that continues to lead me and will keep me company along the way.
Thank you friends for letting me come along with you on Spiritual Journey Thursday. You have helped me grow in ways you will never know. Your words touch my heart and encourage my spirit.
I leave you with another post from Beth Moore. It is a list of many metaphors of grace.
