GPWellness Minute 4/19: Grace and Daily Devotion

Easter Means Grace and Peace! Welcome the Spirit’s Gift of The JOY of Grace covering my devotional life A WORD FROM THE LORD On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” John 20:19 A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT Daily Bible reading, meditation and prayer are not our work, but the work of God in us. Our imperfect disciplines are made perfect by the One at work in us, feeding, nurturing, shaping us. As we struggle with our humble efforts, Jesus says, “Peace be with you!” WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “Holy Spirit, bless my faltering efforts in spiritual growth, and work the wonders of Your mercy and grace in me, for the sake of Jesus. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for The Joy of Grace in my devotional life. MARKER OF WELLBEING: Spiritual As I grow in God’s grace of Spiritual GOODNESS, I am finding joy in RECEPTIVITY to His gifts, maturing and growing in Christ.
