Grace Day



Deuteronomy 7:6

BY She Reads Truth

Use today to pray, rest, and reflect on this week’s reading, giving thanks for the grace that is ours in Christ.

For you are a holy people belonging to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you to be his own possession out of all the peoples on the face of the earth.
—Deuteronomy 7:6

    I love the NIV reading of this scripture: “For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be His people, His treasured possession.” He has chosen me, and I am His treasured possession. It fills me with the confidence to step out into this world today knowing Who I belong to.

      Thank you for sharing. We are His treasured possession. That is a sweet translation to think on!

    I was never really picked for anything growing up. So the truth that Almighty God, the Creator of the Universe, picked me leaves me speechless and so grateful.
    Also, I wanted to give ya’ll an update on my husband. He had open-heart surgery last Friday. The surgery went perfectly. But, we had a small setback in coming home because his colon and small intestines have had a hard time waking up. This caused a lot of pain, gas, and bloating. As of yesterday we were finally beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully, he will get to go home today or tomorrow.
    I cannot begin to tell you how much your prayers have meant. We have felt every word spoken over us. God has been so faithful and so compassionate and tender towards us. The past month has been both the worst and the best. The worst was the worry and anxiety and fear that we felt facing such major surgery. The best was the incredible way that God ministered to us and the things that He has taught me. I could write pages of the ways that God sent just what I needed just when I needed it. He has protected us physically, spiritually, and emotionally. It has been a journey that I don’t think I want to do again, but oh, the things I have learned – be present right now, trust God to take the next step, lean on friends, let them do for you when they can, rest, breathe, lean into God’s presence, wait, be still, fret not…I could go on, but I won’t.
    Thank you again, my sweet sisters in Christ. I am so glad we get to do this journey together. Be blessed!

      I’m so glad! You should record all He is doing in and through you during the past month and this season(in your own private journal). It will be a sweet testimony to look back on! So you’ll never forget the realness of what you’re feeling/experiencing now! May God continue to provide and bless you and your husband!
