Grace be to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 11 Cor. 1:2
We define grace in the spiritual sense as God's mercy toward us that allows us to have things we aren't entitled to. There are times when we all, on occasion take life and its blessings for granted. It is very easy to get so involved in our daily endeavors and never pray or give God thanks for the things we have. We seem to never realize what life would be like, if we no longer had the things we cherish.
Regardless, of how educated one may be, or how wealthy, beautiful or popular, poor or plain, we all need God's grace. Below are some inspirational words of courage with hope and peace to add sun shine to your day:
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. (11 Corinthians 1:3)
The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. (Psalm 34:7)
