His grace

For out of His fullness (abundance) we have all received [all had a share and we were all supplied with] one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing and even favour upon favour and gift [heaped] upon gift. John 1:16 AMP
As I reflect over the week, it doesn't take long to see God's grace on our lives. 
Moments in our family life, when I looked around and thought, wow, this family is really working well. As opposed to the many moments when I think, what is going on here? God please help us. His grace that has enabled you to keep loving.
Interactions with people that made me feel so grateful to be part of a community that loves and cares for others. His grace that has positioned me there.
Practical things like a dry, warm home, food on the table, a car to get around in and a computer and internet access. His grace in provision for our lives.
Peace and hope, for the moments when life doesn't seem so great. His grace that lifts my head.
For He foreordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent] -[So that we might be] to the praise and the commendation of His glorious grace (favour and mercy), which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. Ephesians 1:5-6 AMP
Question for today, if you reflect on you week, what are the specific moments of God's grace that stand out for you? Let's praise God today for His amazing grace.
The grace (spiritual favour and blessing) of the Lord Jesus Christ (the Anointed One) be with your spirit, Amen (so be it). Philippians 4:23 AMP
