Hi, I’m Lauren from GraceUnmerited.com
I am mom to one amazing little girl and wife to an awesome husband. But, most importantly I am a child of God.
I was saved at a early age, but just recently started learning what it means to walk in the way God has called me to walk. I am far from perfect, but each and everyday God provides me with His unmerited grace.
My Journey to Grace
My journey to giving and receiving grace has been a long, bumpy one.
Prior to learning to give and receive grace, I almost prided myself on my ability to hold grudges. If you wronged me you were sure to face the consequences.
That was until I was in a situation where I desperately needed some grace. The person I wronged had every right to walk away or to hold a lifetime grudge, but they didn’t.
They chose to show me grace. A grace that I did not know was humanly possible. They didn’t just forgive me in the way that you “forgive”, but continue to hold it over their head.
No, they forgave me in a way that seemed as though I never wronged them. It was a grace you would image only receiving from Christ.
This challenged me and immediately opened my eyes to the way I had been holding back on freely giving others the grace that Christ gives me.
We are called to forgive just as Christ forgave us. This is a vital key to Christianity and something I had been neglecting to do.
Unfortunately, instead of realizing how graciously Christ had forgiven me and sharing that grace with others I was harboring resentment toward people.
The exact opposite of what I have been called to do, which is to LOVE because Christ first loved me.
Through this journey I not only discovered that I myself was not giving grace as freely as I should’ve been, but I was also not allowing myself to freely accept the grace God was giving me.
I felt unworthy of His love because of sins I had committed or like I would never be good enough because of my past mistakes.
But in that moment when a mere human forgave me as if nothing had ever happened, I realized just how much more our perfect, loving, wonderful God must be able to forgive me.
And also just how much I need to start sharing Grace Unmerited with others.
Here at graceunmerited.com you will learn about the grace of God and how to freely forgive others once and for all. I will also write about my other passions which are my faith, family, and natural living.
