All is Grace – Indeed!
January 1, 2023
When I went back to read the January newsletter for 2022 the title was “All Is Grace”. One of the lines in that letter was, “Yes there is still much to learn and understand about His grace, but now I am aware of and appreciate His grace as never before.” At the time that I wrote this, little did I realize the challenges 2022 would bring and the grace I would need to power through the year. Covid19 was raging and a number of friends were down with it, some of those dealing with long-term covid. Others were experiencing financial or relationship challenges or wrestling with questions about the future.
One of the challenges I had to deal with was Candida, which is a viral gut fungus that calls for a radical change in diet. That has been difficult but again God’s grace has helped. Then I needed neck surgery to relieve some issues caused by pressure on the spinal cord. That has meant a recovery time wearing a neck collar for several months. Hopefully, it will end soon. Again, it has been God’s grace through this entire process that has helped me along the way.
What about you? When you think about your journey with God over the past year are you able to grasp the extraordinary power of His grace? I once heard grace described as “power under control”. How has that worked out for you this past year? Obviously, we all deal with major issues throughout the year and can hang onto God’s grace to carry us through. But what about those everyday things like the individual ahead of you in traffic doing 15 MPH under the speed limit? Or the person in front of you in line at the grocery store who pulls out a fistful of coupons with a basket overflowing, and you only have two items and there is no other cashier around? I can identify with both of these because I have been in these scenarios and did not always handle them with grace.
I think it bears repeating what I wrote in January of 2022. “I had to step back and think about my journey with God and try to grasp how His extraordinary grace has empowered and protected me.”
My challenge to you is this: stop for a moment and think about your journey and appreciate how God’s grace has been instrumental in your life up to this point. He has been there through the good times and the rough times for He says in His Word, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Joshua 1:5, Hebrews 13:5).
It is both reassuring and exciting to look to the future in our own personal journey and know that God’s grace is always there.

WHY NOT WASTE TIME WITH GOD
It’s About Relationship!
WHY NOT WASTE TIME WITH GOD: MOVING BEYOND A SUPERFICIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD TO LIVE IN INTIMACY WITH HIM
“This book frames spiritual growth with God’s heart, given in his Son and validated by His Spirit. This book demolishes our excuses and defenses against divine intimacy. This book is for those willing to have a fresh self-encounter and a fresh God-encounter,” Dr. Don Williams
God wants to hang out with you. We so often feel as if we must be doing something even when we are with God that it’s difficult for us to grasp that He wants to be our friend. In order for deep friendship to develop there are times when we must spend time together doing absolutely nothing but being together.
This book will help you understand that, but only if you apply it will it help you live it. Everything in this world fights against time alone with God. Everything in God longs for time alone with us. Why would you possibly choose to be influenced by the former?
