This week we begin with the blessing of Grace by answering the question, how do we find peace in and through grace?
Grace is presence. It is the Divine’s presence in us, drawing us to be present to ourselves and those around us. The most important thing to know about grace is that it is free and undeserved. We are freely given the blessing of grace and asked to share it in return.
In a world so cluttered with arguments and unnecessary noise, it’s not often that we are aware of the grace we have been given. It’s not often that we slow down long enough to focus on ourselves and consider how we are responding to the world around us.
Accept the grace you have been given and pause with it a moment. Slow down your daily routine, be more intentional with the motions of your everyday life, and allow yourself to feel the presence of the Divine.
Grace was first poured out by Love Himself in order to restore what was lost at a time when humans chose self over God and each other. Grace reorients the person toward all that is good, true, and beautiful in this life as well as the transcendent hope of the next.
Grace makes us royal again.
The blessing of grace allows us to center ourselves in a serene and focused way, finding peace amidst uncertainty and fear. Even though it is so undeserved, we are still given the joyous opportunity to receive this blessing and share it in return.
