What's the Catch?

At first, it seemed too good to be true.

You've got to be kidding me!

As someone who has spent my entire life trying to "earn my way", this offer sounded more than too good to be true. It verged on over the top!

But, I was tired.

And, I have to admit, all my works of self-righteousness still found me sporting filthy rags.

So,

I listened.

I read.

I heard His still small voice calling me to a new way of living,

a new life in and through Him

and

I took God up on His offer.

I accepted His invitation.

I received His

Grace.

And you know what?!


This IS too good to be true.


 It is more than over the top.


But,


amazingly,


 there's no catch.


With grace,


I gotcha!

it's all about being caught.

  7. Hi Stacy,

    Great post for 5 minute Friday! :)

    The older I get, I have learned that having a positive day begins from the moment I open my eyes in the morning and just decide to have a good day. :) I pray that I can meet the challenges of getting older, and age with grace as a time to grow nearer to God and fulfill his purposes. :)

    Blessings for a Fabulous Friday!
