How Do You Define Grace?

Hello! Hope all in the USA had a wonderful holiday weekend full of family, food and fun! Can you believe summer is here in all her glory?

I am passing along Today's Daily Word which in on Grace. Many people think Grace is something to be earned. It is NOT. Grace is freely given, as love, enlightenment, joy and the ever present feelings of safety and protection.

God GRANTS Grace to each and everyone of us. You do not have to believe in God to get Grace. God's GRACE is present for everyone- it is present for us all.   This ever present love is reflected back to you as self love, as understanding that there is nothing you HAVE to do to be in God's good Graces. Nothing- not a thing.

Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.  Grace is where you want your heart to live, it is the space from which all things "love" start and end. It is the all- Grace is Love in Action.  Get yours!

Thanks for reading! Michelle

Today's Daily Word

I accept God's gift of grace.

The parable of the prodigal son illustrates God's grace. The son, returning to his father's house, did not have to journey the full distance alone. His father ran toward him to welcome him, to care for him and to offer him sustenance.

The nature of God is love, and grace is an expression of divine love. It is the infinite support and benevolence of God given unconditionally. If I turn away from God's presence within me, it is the activity of grace that guides me home again.

A favorite Unity poem reads, "Though you fail to find Me, I do not fail you. Though your faith in Me is unsure, My faith in you never wavers, because I know you, because I love you. Beloved, I am there."

While he was still far off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion.--Luke 15:20
