You can be strong in grace. But not just any grace.
The meaningful things in life don’t come easy. I hope that doesn’t burst any bubbles for you…because it’s the cold, hard truth. Even if it seems like someone else has it easy in life, I promise you they don’t. They might have some parts easier than you, but the things that matter most won’t come easy to anyone. And because of this truth you need to find a source of strength you can always depend on. A source you know you can turn to again and again and again. That source is Grace. No, not some lady named Grace. I’m talking about the Grace your Creator provided for you…namely in the person of Jesus. You can be strong in Grace when you understand what a price He paid to give it to you.
Think about pro athletes. Nowadays many of them make a ton of money each year. But they don’t get paid the big bucks to be a pro athlete. They get paid to perform on a level the rest of us can only sit on the sidelines and watch. If they don’t work hard and stay on top of their game, they can easily lose their jobs.
Or how about farmers? Just think, they get to be the first ones to eat the fruits, vegetables, and livestock they grow. In fact, they can take from the cream of the crop. But they deserve it because they did all the hard work. And I know, from personal experience working on farms in Kansas, a little about how difficult it is. Farmers have to get up before dawn and most often work till after dusk. They deal with too little or too much rain, bugs, shaky commodities markets, and so much more. And they rarely or never get the fame and fortune heaped on pro athletes…even though they feed the world. Talk about needing to be strong in Grace!
If you’re struggling with where your life is taking you today, I have a suggestion. Make a conscious decision to trust God. Trust Jesus. And lean on His Grace. I can guarantee you’ll never regret it. Here’s a rhyme to help you remember…
You can be strong in Grace.
You can be sure your life is worthwhile.
You can be glad for every moment you’re alive.
And when you’re strong in Grace,
You can face the day with a sure smile
Knowing one day soon the Savior will arrive.
