I have been putting off starting a blog for a few years. Every time I tried, I chickened out because I couldn’t think of a good enough name.
Instead of obsessing over the perfect one, I picked one that fit my life in the moment – and here we are.
“Who knows grace” explains my daily journey of following Christ. I’m constantly trying to figure out what grace means and how it applies to everything in my life. I have to be reminded constantly that it exists and that I need to give myself some.
The dictionary defines grace as “the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.”
There is so much meaning in those few words. Jesus Christ died on the cross to give salvation to His children: us. And this is the picture of an undeserved sacrifice from a perfect God who loves us that much. He then provides for us, listens to our prayers, and desires for us to be in relationship with Him every day.
This overarching definition of grace is pretty incredible. But grace is also in our every day.
It is forgiveness – like when my husband forgives me for making him late to church every Sunday because I can’t decide what to wear.
It is loving people who have wronged us. It is kindness towards everyone.
It is the root of my love because I know I would not be who I am without the grace of God.
“By the grace of God I am what I am.” 1 Corinthians 15:10
“We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19
Who knows grace is my journey of understanding and living out grace daily. How can a perfect God love me when I am mean and ungrateful, completely reject Him or am too proud to admit I am wrong? Because He is good.
