Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness ~ Lamentations 3:22-23
If you’ve read my previous blog posts recently, you’ll know that I’ve been questioning my actions and life-decisions a little – questioning What’s Next? What’s my one next step along the world?
Encouraged, the blog & book of Robin Jones Gunn remind me of the positive truth that we are not a victim of circumstances; rather we are a victim of grace.
I love the way that with Jesus, grace and hope can shine through any situation. Ta daa!
Here’s a lil paragraph about grace on Robin’s blog (http://www.robingunn.com/victimofgrace/):
“How have things been going for you lately? Are you feeling discouraged due to circumstances that seem out of your control? You’re a victim, you know. It’s true. Not a victim of circumstances. No, you are a Victim of Grace. God is accomplishing His purposes in you and through you regardless of what is going on around you. He has His heart set on you”
I love it! I would encourage you to read her book, “Victim of Grace”, especially if you’re already a RJG fan. For me, it’s a real page turner, a true account of a few of Robin’s life chapters, full of pleasant truths.
What situations are you going through in your life right now?!
Be encouraged – God’s love and grace for us are bigger than our circumstances!
Where sin increased, grace increased all the more ~ Romans 5:20
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord ~ Romans 8:39
