Is grace happening to you?
Is grace happening in you?
Is grace happening through you?
I’ve been stuck emotionally and spiritually more than I’d like to admit. Raise your hand if you can relate? Okay, we’re all “not alone.” But, let’s not stay stuck!
Looking to take a step forward in your life?
Want your actions to more closely match your intentions?
Each of the themes below links to a previous mysilentscream post that has been helpful to readers looking to make a change. 1
Love – Tired of empty expressions of “love”?
Joy – Is joy something you long for?
Peace – Do you wonder what peace would look like?
Patience – Need help becoming more patient?
Kindness – How long has it been since your generosity stunned someone? Since someone objected, “No, really, this is too generous”?
Goodness – Wanna know what goodness looks like?
Faithfulness – Looking for a role model of faithfulness?
Gentleness – Want to be known as more gentle?
Self-Control – Need help saying no?
Grace Comes Through God (and You!)
God occasionally speaks directly to people – through the Holy Spirit – to reveal specific details about God’s purposes and God’s plans; BUT usually not.
God speaks through the Bible.
God speaks through prayer.
God speaks through circumstances.
God speaks through God’s people.
God will be more likely to use us to transform others when we accept that we need to rely on God’s strength to hold tight to God and one another.
