Grace {Think On These Things}

In 2011, I selected a Word of the Year: GRACE. Little did I know what a tough year it would be. I would have to learn the real meaning of the word GRACE, and even harder for me, I would have to learn to give it. In the end, I was thankful for the lessons learned as within a couple of years I would have to extend grace to those that would devastate my life. I see grace as forgiveness. And that's exactly what it is. However, it is far more than that. It is unmerited favor given to us by God and others. It is a letting go of the pain that was heaped on us. It is the opposite of anger. It is realizing that we are all sinners and acting accordingly. It is a gift we get that we never earned or deserved.

In the month of April, I will be focusing on grace again through writing out Scriptures related to the topic. Want to join me? "Think On These Things" is a monthly Scripture writing plan, but it can be more than just copying out God's Word. It can be words to meditate on and/or divide deeper into through journaling or verse mapping. You can spend just the time writing the verses out or you can go deeper and longer. So why don't you join us this month? See below for more information.

If you would like all the Think on These Things verses or want to know more about it, click here.

During the month I try to post my thoughts on the verses on Instagram. If you would like to follow me you can find me here. Also, if you are posting your own thoughts there please use the hashtag #thinkonthesethings. I would love to read how God speaks to you!!

There are many ways you can use these verses. You can read and meditate on them. You can write them out as you meditate on them. You can read them and then write about them in a journal or journaling Bible. You could do verse mapping with them (See this post). Here are some of the items I use...

A single column journaling Bible allows you to make notes in the margins.

ESV Single Column Journaling Bible (TruTone, Chestnut, Leaves Design)
ESV Single Column Journaling Bible (Black)
ESV Single Column Journaling Bible (Brown, Flap with Strap)

Some highlighters {These are my absolute favorites!}...

Eco Highlighter Pencils - Set of 5 Colors

Black pens are great for writing out the verses...

I love these journals that lay flat...easier to write in! They are great for Scripture writing!
