Thank you to everyone to joined in the giveaway on my blog last week. I had a fabulous Spring Break and now I am getting ready to celebrate my children’s spring break next week. Life is certainly busy but it is also full marvelous blessings. I am so grateful to be able to spend my life on earth doing meaningful work for The Lord.
If we are honest with ourselves I think we could easily say it’s all grace, right? Every day, every moment, every tear, and every sweet moment of love and gifts, it’s all grace. But sometimes I think we forget that every day is grace; however, there is one thing we can do every day to practice walking in God’s daily grace for our lives.

Do this One Thing to Practice Daily Grace in Your Life
You know it’s not easy, this grace thing. But one thing I have noticed is that I can always make an intentional effort to practice grace every single day. One simple thing I have been doing is accepting other people’s apologies and learning to forgive them even if I am still hurting. Again, no one ever said practicing grace would be easy. But as I walk further on this journey of grace I have noticed that sometimes I disregard apologies that I received from people, like I basically act like they didn’t even say the very difficult words to say like “I am sorry.”
I mean really, those words are so difficult to say sometimes and how hurtful it must feel when someone says they are sorry and it is not received by the person they are apologizing to. Not to mention the unforgiving hearts that we might face when we apologize.
We all know the burden we feel when we realize that there is absolutely nothing we can do to earn God’s grace and forgiveness in our lives. I know in God’s Word it says that the measure of forgiveness we give to others is the measure we will receive. In my opinion I don’t think it’s a matter of God holding back forgiveness from us because we are holding back forgiveness from others, I think it has more to do with the fact that if we can’t forgive others then do we really understand God’s forgiveness towards us.
Grace is such a powerful lesson to be learned on this journey down the narrow path.
Thank the Lord we don’t have to walk along this path alone, and we can truly accomplish daily grace in our life by simply accepting one apology for one offense at a time. God is good, and it truly is all grace!
