For Anyone Afraid to “Lose Your Life So You Can Save It” – Part 1

  1. Thank you! I always seem to struggle with accepting grace–feels like everyone around me is worthy of God’s grace…except me. I KNOW that’s not true and that God’s grace is there for me too but I struggle to truly believe and embrace it so this message is so helpful.

    I also love your comment, “We don’t ever lose, we win or we learn”. With God on our side we always win–maybe not in the timing we want. Like an gold medal olympian who trains and works hard for years, suffers bumps, bruises, setbacks but eventually earns the gold 🙂

    1. Riley, I feel your struggle. You are not alone. And I love your Olympic gold medal analogy! Totally made me think of 1 Peter 1:7. May the trials we have to face only serve to prove our faith genuine!

  2. Pearl, I woke up at 2:30 a.m. and couldn’t go back to sleep. Maybe God was prompting me to come to my computer and read your lovely message about grace.

    I need to hear the story of Jesus over and over and over. Satan seeks to convince me that grace is too wonderful to be true. If he can make me feel unworthy enough to listen to that lie, he has a foothold. I need constant reminding that grace is the surest truth in my life.

    1. I’m thrilled if God spoke grace to your heart through this! “I need constant reminding that grace is the surest truth in my life.” Beautifully said. I’ll raise my tea cup to that!
