Allow a state of grace to flow within, around, and through you this day. A permanent disposition of the soul in which the divine life of sanctifying or habitual grace is present is referred to as being in a “state of grace.” Once attained, this state of soul persists unless it is destroyed by purposeful deadly sin and is characterized by sinlessness and the accomplishment of God’s will.
What is a state of grace? The quality of being chosen by God or in His favor. Living simply will prevent you from being tortured by your stuff, schedule, or relationships. You can create a sanctuary in your heart and home when you concentrate on the things that you find useful, appealing, or vital and let the rest go. Spend some time by yourself; God will be there.
Grace is stepping aside when it matters, not what is before you. When you begin to believe that things should have changed this year, keep in mind the mountains and valleys that brought you here. These occurrences are not random and they weren’t a waste of time. You’ve evolved. You have grown and are still growing. You are a living, breathing manifestation of an endless supply of grace. Additionally, things will get better. You have improved from the day before.
Grace is allowing another to seek their path, not the path you would choose for them. Grace is forgiving you for missteps along the way. Although you may not have selected your environment, you do have the option of finding life there. Both forgiving and healing are choices that are entirely up to you. No matter how someone else has treated you, you are deserving of love.
Grace is accepting the decisions of another whether or not they please you. Never give in to someone who can’t handle your sorrow making you feel awful. Even though everyone can walk beside you, you are still deserving of belonging. But regardless of who departs or remains,Keep in mind everything they taught you.
Grace is being gentle with yourself as you travel the path before you. Even the boring times that make you wish you were somewhere else will help you get to where you want to be, and you’ll be grateful when you get there. You are nimble and can move through your own uncertainty out here in the wild. And that, my friend, requires courage.
Grace is compassionate, nurturing. And may you know that there is grace for you in that space, and no amount of sadness or loneliness can take that away when the sun is sinking, the home is silent, and you are worn out from the day. You have permission to slow down as a result of that grace. No matter how many problems are still unresolved, you are free to breathe and relax. Some mystery may exist, and there may be desirable, pondering, and waiting. No matter how terrible these moments feel, there will also be unlimited peace that goes beyond any understanding, flowing wild like a river across everything. So when everything is coming, you may enjoy it. Although tomorrow will definitely come, you are free to relax until then in the meantime.
Grace is love, being open to seeing the Light within. Grace is the hand that is never far away, reminding you: You are not weak because you are lonely. This is true whether you are under a clear sky, on broken rocks, in dry heat, or in a desert area.
Grace is being open to seeing the Light within others regardless of appearances, regardless of actions. You are blossoming outdoors in the wild while the sun and wind are still glowing. Even if you may not see a change right now, you are developing into the person the sun and the wild meant for you to be. May you always be the one to see the details that allow the light to shine through, and may they serve as a constant reminder that there is more to life than meets the eye.
You have a greater purpose in life.
Grace is life. Rest is forgiving. The night clears. The slate is cleaned by darkness; it is not pristine, but it is clean enough for another day’s chalking.
