John 1:16 For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. (NRSV)

Holy Moly

As I look back on my life, the one thing that I can’t understand about myself is why it took me so long to accept the grace and the mercy of God. Knowing what I know now, it was sheer lunacy!

For much of my life, the word “holy” didn’t mean anything to me. I thought it was something that happened to your bed sheets if you didn’t cut your toenails. Or perhaps it was the other half of moly – you know, as in “holy moly”.

I kind of knew that it was a religious word, but I didn’t realise it was about who God is – His awesome goodness, His glory that shines throughout the whole earth.

Isaiah 6:3 “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!” (NRSV)

What I did know, although I couldn’t have quite put it in these words, was that I fell so far short of who God is and what He stands for, that I could never be loved by this holy God. And if I ever let Him in, if I ever met Him face to face, I knew that He’d judge me. I knew that He’d condemn me. I knew that He’d reject me. After all, I knew that who I was and who I wasn’t meant that I couldn’t come anywhere close to the standard of this holy God.

So my conclusions were perfectly logical.

But here’s the rub. God’s grace isn’t about logic at all – it’s about love. And the thing about love is that it doesn’t have to be logical. That’s why Jesus did what He did.

John 1:16
For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. (NRSV)

Not just grace – but in case you were thinking the same way I used to – grace upon grace. Holy moly.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Thanks Berni. My life has been transforming since I began reading God’s word and I only began reading God’s word in 2015.
I didn’t know where to begin and so I asked a faithful woman of the church that I was attending and she recommended that I begin reading the book of JOHN and so I did and I also took a copy of Our Daily Bread to read each Month.
In the beginning reading the Bible was really complex and difficult to understand.
I never stopped and I have not ever given up and I even had my Holy Bible (nlv) in my hand with me when the police and the mental health and the child safety departments ambushed us in our home and ordering me to be escorted to the psychiatric facility for assessment.
It was no assessment, I was on an order.’
It was a very difficult time and a time that was so terrible in fact that I have found it extremely hard to reach out for any assistance or help in FEAR of being so wrongly taken and treated.
Apparently it’s emotional abuse being a spiritual person .’
I took up reading the Bible in 2015 and I had my Bible in my hand in 2017 when I was mistaken for being a psychotic severely mentally ill person.
I discovered Joyce Meyer while being held in protective custody and I am so glad that I found her.
All the insults and the ridicule and the torment and the torture of my mental health because of my truth and my spirituality has been overwhelming.
It says in GALATIANS 23 Before the way of faith in Christ was available to us, we were placed under guard by the law. We were kept in protective custody, so to speak until the way of faith was revealed.

I feel much comfort from that verse as I was taken away and kept in protective custody for being REAL and for being SPIRITUAL and for being a GOOD MUM.
I love my children, it was a difficult time in 2017 with my life all scattered and torn through the PTSD repeat and my daughter refusing to go to school.
People can be so cruel and they’ll smile and pretend to be someone who cares too while they back stab and put in false claims of child abuse the slander the cruelty .
I have only ever loved my children even through the times in the valley and out in the wilderness .
God is a God of justice and He protects us from the enemy and he hides our lives from the conspiracies of the wicked and the plots of wrongdoers and I truly believe that, that is the truth because God’s word is life and far out the strength of God when we have solid faith is unreal oh but it’s just so real :o)
