Fill Me with Your Grace

Today’s Reflection

YOURS THE SEED, yours the growth;
yours the water, yours the thirst;
yours the wild, yours the tame.
You are within me, O God,
and within all creation —
and you are beyond.
Shape and fill me this day
and all creation
with your grace.

    Father – Your Grace covers me. It is sufficient. Thank You for pouring it into me daily, even tho I often fail to acknowledge it. Your Mercy, too, is amazing.
    So grateful for the message received at church yesterday. I have been attending this church for three months now – and yesterday’s message was the strongest one yet.
    Grateful for a beautiful afternoon yesterday – my sister and her husband joined my folks and I for lunch and a local art festival. Spent the evening doing yard work. Some of my best quiet time, thinking and praying, occurs while doing yard work.

    God is truly blessing in the middle of the crisis and the storm. The landlord of the people that Ms.Reddick is allowing Ms.Reddick their driveway is stepping up to the plate since the harassment is going on. She is going to work with Servus to get her oaid out. the things she is needed to do prevent her from running her errands.

    Thankful for a safe and successful move. Started on 7/12 and was finished unloading on 7/15 . Able to go to church yesterday, enjoyed the holy conferencing service, was glad to see people who have recovered from illness
    thank You, Lord, and enjoyed fellowship time. Progress today unpacking, Erich had a short but better day at work, and I was able to help Jerry remove damaged roof. Glad to be back here at the UR, have a lot of catching up to do.
    Pray that you are all well. Many blessings!
