The Power of Grace

This quote above by Plato rings so true in this season of my life. I am currently experiencing a rough season of lots of pain and this is something I must constantly remind myself. Hurt is designed to make us turn inward and put the focus on ourselves and we end up forgetting that others are hurting too. Although another persons pain may be different than yours let's not water down anyone else's battle because we feel our pain is more important. Being hurt does not give us a license to withhold grace. Grace is even more powerful and beautiful in those moments when we are broken and hurting. Beloved, in the words of Plato, be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Princess, remember that our Abba's grace is sufficient for us so that we can go head and be gracious to those who are hurting, especially those who don't know the great grace we have.
