Hope and Grace

faith-grace-hope-800x265Am I a person of hope and grace?

Are you?

My first reaction is, “Of course!” After all, I have hope, and God’s given me grace. I firmly believe and live in and because of both. But that doesn’t really make me a person of either.

The way I live does. What I think. My attitudes about and interactions with others. My humility to let God define what grace and hope in my life is and looks like. My willingness to live with grace and hope with others.

So, am I a person of hope and grace?

I’m a work in process. I don’t always get it right, either in what I do or what I think I should do. My motives aren’t always based on His way of doing things. I don’t always let Him define what grace and hope is. Sometimes I try to take the reins myself. And as soon as I do, I’m no longer living with His grace and hope.

But I will keep yielding and keep trying and keep growing.
