GPWellness Minute 4/23: Grace Anoints Our Conversations!

Easter Means Grace and Peace! Welcome the Spirit’s Gift of The JOY of Grace that blesses imperfect communication 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 We rarely speak with absolute clarity, or listen as we ought. When miscommunication divides, grace brings the peace that Jesus spoke to His disciples, new beginnings and the bonds of unity and love. WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “Dear Jesus, misunderstanding separates me from those I love. Make me a more caring listener, and teach me to speak the truth in love. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for The Joy of Grace that overcomes imperfect communication. MARKER OF WELLBEING: Intellectual As I grow in God’s grace of Intellectual KINDNESS, I am finding joy in CURIOSITY, listening and speaking in a beneficial way.
