Because of Grace

I asked God to give me a verse for this time I'm going through. And He gave me an easy one to memorize, James 4:6, "But He gives greater grace". Really, isn't that what it's all about? Because of greater grace, He shed His blood on the cross for us 2000 years ago. Because of greater grace, He was victor over death and rose to live again. Because of greater grace, He is seated in the place of honor at God's right hand. Because of greater grace, He is constantly interceding for me in my trials. Because of greater grace, He lives in us and gives us His power to overcome all. Because of greater grace, He is giving me the strength to make it through this most difficult time in my life. Becuse of greater grace, I give Him my love and praise for giving me His greater grace.


  1. Thank you Peggy for sharing this verse on Grace! Amen.

  2. Praying for you Peggy!

    Here's another good one that always calms me:

    And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.(2 Corinthians 12:9)

  3. Thank you for your encouraging comment sister Peggy but I am only able "because of His grace!"

    Oh, what are we to do without Him? Praying for your continued healing. Hope you're remaining strong because of His grace. God bless and protect you.

  4. just finished reading Brennan Manning's memoir "All is Grace".

    That about sums it up doesn't it?

  5. Still praying for your healing, precious Peggy. You write with such a beautiful heart.

  6. I wish it weren't so, but it seems the burdened heart is the one that writes so beautifully. Thank God He is your strength & shield. Praying for relief, and for even more beautiful words.
