May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. – 2 Corinthians 13:14

Seeing children at school once again in the fall is always a fun time for me. It’s amazing how much they grow from one year to the next. I love to hear what they did during the summer and what they like about school so far this year. I also find it amazing how well all the students seem to get along and actually spur one another on to do good and achieve more. They genuinely seem to care about one another. It’s a gift they give to one another.

We as Christians also have the opportunity to enjoy the gifts that God has given us in grace, love and fellowship. These are not gifts to put away to keep safe, but gifts we use every day with vulnerability. There is a risk in actively living grace, love and fellowship with one another. But it is a risk well worth taking for if we didn’t, we would not know the true richness of being one with Christ. The human experience is full of ups and downs where our hearts are bruised, but the beauty comes from the overall experience of living as Christ. He is the one who heals and strengthens us for his higher calling.

Prayer: Thank you, Jesus, for the calling you have on my life. The challenges I have experienced have made me stronger and more able to serve where you have called me. I pray that I follow you closely each day knowing you are always there with me. Amen

Faith Tip: Be vulnerable today in living out grace, love and fellowship. You are blessed to be a blessing.

  1. I so agree. Often we are afraid to take those risks that are actually nudges of faith by the Lord. I stepped out in faith 12 years ago and took a risk to start writing. As the years went by I felt the Lord encourage me to take other calculated risks. I call them calculated because in each case I prayed only for the Lord’s direction. Since then I’ve seen Him do some amazing things.

    • The Lord is so faithful, Christine. I thank you for sharing your experience that will encourage all of us. Blessings! Kathy

  2. Someone once told me that Faith is spelled RISK. I do so agree. I want to bless you for writing as you do to lead people to know more about Christ and to get encouraged for the blogging that you do.

    I know it’s a silly little ploy, and you can choose to ignore this if you wish, but I nominate you and 14 others for THE MOST VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD – what do you need to do – if you want to know more information:
