I have seen a Salvation Army commercial that features different people saying, "Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a--- crack head, drug addict, alcoholic--- like me; I once was--- homeless, broken, sad, lost, but now I am--- sober, happy, found." The message that I can relate to is that God is there in the midst of our brokenness, our addictions, and our afflictions. When I feel forgotten and in trouble, God will find me if I seek Him.
I needed God's grace yesterday. It was a rough day. But ultimately, at the end of the day, I was able to ask for the grace to be able to deal with the situation. I knew that I needed to put myself in the care of my Higher Power.
Grace is a gift which is given but hasn't been earned. I have heard that grace is given to everyone, but not everyone accepts the gift. After a situation that left me struggling to regain my emotional balance, I was able to unclench my fist, relax, be open and let grace come to me.
