This just may be the most beautiful asset we can add to our lives in 2022. It is not to be mistaken with graceful—which is lovely, but I gave up on that a long time ago! Grace-FULL, being full of grace, looks something like this:

  • Giving the benefit of the doubt
  • Forgiving when it’s n
  • ot deserved
  • Accepting uncomfortable quirks
  • Offering your time
  • Speaking to a stranger
  • Extending a hand though tired
  • Refusing to take offense
  • Showing kindness
  • Speaking gently
  • Listening intently
  • Praying consistently

I’ve adopted a perspective that helps me be grace-filled—everyone is a package, filled with experiences, hurts, and fears we know nothing about. The package they walk, talk, and live in is a reflection of experiences accumulated over years. Maybe they can do better, act nicer, be kinder—but so can I. I love it when someone shows me grace. I love it when God shows me grace which, actually, is all the time.

Let’s mirror His grace as we walk through 2022, leaving glimmers of God’s light along the way.
