A Graceful Reminder

a graceful reminder

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.

Ephesians 2:8

Most of the time I am carried away by the confidence of doing a thing rightly, or sometimes a little better than the ordinary, especially when others think the same way too. I am carried by the thought that maybe I am indispensable, or at times great. But when God notices it, He sends someone to awaken me to the reality. And urgh! I am on my right place.

God is that open to me in His discipline. He does not allow me to wallow in my ego for a longer time. I am always embarrass before Him; yet loved unconditionally.

On occasions like these, the verse above always echoes in my mind. Yeah, why should I boast for things that have been given to me freely? This lead me to ask, ‘why am I here in the first place if I were not to own anything?’ There is no use searching for the answers. Even if there is one, I may never understand. I just need to accept the truth that everything given to me, whether it be inside of me or outside of me, is a gift – a gift I need to share.

You are God’s gift for me today. Thank you for your time.

Have a purposeful day!
