Grace Day

Open Your Bible

Romans 6:4

Take this day to catch up on your reading, pray, and rest in the presence of the Lord.

Therefore we were buried with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too may walk in newness of life.
—Romans 6:4

    @nicola I am praying for you! I am in the exact same boat right now! I have watched countless friends effortlessly find their husbands/ boyfriends. It can be so hard and feels defeating at times. I have found it is hard to put myslef

    Thank you Carol for posting the Message version of Romans 6. I was struck too, a whole new level of meaning, translation is such a powerful tool of communication isn’t it. “Were there no God, we would be in this glorious world with grateful hearts, and no one to thank”- a lovely quote by Christina Rossetti I thought of today and like to share. Be blessed dear sisters.

    I absolutely love this! I pray you all have a a safe and healthy weekend! My children are in a wedding this weekend. They will be 3 in October, I pray they behave and walk down the aisle as (at least halfway) expected too. Either way we will enjoy the union of 2 beautiful souls!

    The newness of life in Jesus (Romans 6:4) has dramatically altered the sounds and sights of the world to me. The music I once played is old and sour. The lyrics I once knew so well are now confusing and foreign to my heart. I “sing to Him a new song; play skillfully with a jubilant shout” (Psalm 33:3). “… He put a new song in my mouth…” (Psalm 40:3). In some ways the process was slow, this new way of living to take hold I mean. But, I realize now that I was hindering my own rebirth. I was clinging to the darkness of the birth canal. Like the Israelites longing to return to Egypt. Bondage is what they knew, even though freedom is what they needed to be who God created them to be. Once I let go of my hold on what was familiar, my vision cleared and I could truly read what God had written on my heart. “Forgiven”. “You are Mine”. I belong to the Creator of all things. “Born from above” (John 3:7- March 7 is really my birthday, I just realized this as I typed…cool!). Blessed assurance. I feel an inward joy that the world could never give nor take away. “By the ear’s hearing I heard of You, but now my eye has seen You” (Job 42:5). My heart of stone was buried with sin, dead in darkness. Then the arms of grace entered the gates of hell to bring me back with His life. Reborn as a child of God and growing up in Christ Jesus. With an incorruptible Seed I learn and grow in His daily grace and knowledge. “Ye now have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you” (John 16:22). In the wilderness, God provides all that I need. He is all I need. Blessing upon blessing is poured out upon my heart and soul, and I can walk freely and lightly with Him. Selah. Maranatha. Amen.

    @ Nicola, YOU GOT IT!!
    I know the feeling, it’s so hard to wait on God’s timing and wonder if it will ever happen! (except I was making bad decisions trying to make it happen! a no no! ) Try to occupy your time by serving or doing something for yourself (that most likely you won’t have time for later!) or connecting with family and friends! You are growing in the wait even though it’s hard to see! I liked to pray and journal. Then you will look back and see your answered prayers! :) I was coming off of a divorce and having a 2 years old, so it was a very hard struggle having my dream destroyed instantly. But of course looking back God lead the way and I met my husband 15 years ago and just had our 12-year anniversary, and he is the perfect husband for me, I’m so blessed. (The singleness, waiting and begging for my husband was 5 years). Prayers for you! :)

    Could I please ask for prayer, I’m really struggling with my singleness and feeling broken this week
