GraceLaced Mondays

Welcome to GraceLaced Mondays! Grace is found in the everyday when you are intentional about taking note of it.

It is found in the sink full of dishes awaiting you after a family meal, it shines in the faces of your imperfect children, it soothes from the pages of God's Word, and it is tucked into the enjoyment of a fresh batch of cookies. Grace is in a beautiful moment and a heartbreaking one alike. Grace is blessing beyond what you and I deserve.

Beth shared an experience all moms can relate to last week. We all have know times of unanswered prayer, delayed understanding in God's ways. I was blessed by Beth's perspective:

"It makes me think about the way that Jesus delayed going to Lazarus when he lay sick and dying. He didn't hurry to Lazarus' side because it wasn't best. In John 11:4, Jesus said that the illness itself was happening so that God would be glorified, and Jesus also. Then in verse 14, Christ tells the disciples that Lazarus has died, and for your sakes, I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. The delay was good. Was best! Incomprehensible for little human hearts and minds, but isn't God's wisdom so much higher than our itty-bitty understanding?! Hard to wrap our hearts around, yes. Give us faith to believe, Lord!"
