A Day's Grace at a Time

There's been a bit of silence on the blog here for quite some time, huh? I've missed writing here and the interaction with friends and sisters in Christ. I've noticed that this happens during my busy seasons. And, no complaints, but I'm certainly in the midst of one.

The Lord is ordering my steps and showing me things that I did not know. He's faithful like that. So, I've had to respond to His call and turn inward, buckle down and really focus on where He's placed me.

My home life.
Having more children does that, centers the focus on the home.
Having the strength to love a husband does it, too.
Homemaking....making a home.

God is showing me anew how to look well over the ways of my household, showing me how to live that out as our family grows and changes, the path I should take...
Day by day, bit by bit...
I find myself calling upon His name, crying out to Him over this home of mine, and those that live here.

The Lord is helping me to let go of things I was never meant to carry, yet seek Him out in the tasks that are mine to do. I'm learning some hard truths, while enjoying some abundant blessings along the way.

Blessings along the way...not anything exceptionally profound by the world's standards. But, when I add them up--abundant. When I look at the spiritual gain--abundant. When the Lord allows me a glimpse of what will be laid up for my children--abundant. . .God is great.

So great is He that in all His splendor and majesty, He takes time to see about me, to walk me through my highs and lows, to listen to me cry again and again: "Lord, I can't do this without You!" He knows this and He shows Himself strong, even in the small places...our God is so great.

Just working my way through, a day's grace at a time.

And He said to me,
“My grace is sufficient for you, 
for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 
Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, 
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
-2 Corinthians 12:9


  1. Yes! I have been meditating on this scripture for weeks now. I think He has now placed the following verse, 10, on my heart. He is faithful!

    1. I love when God confirms His hand in our lives through His word. May God continue to bless you with His grace, Latonya!

  2. Such a sweet post Stacie. I'm blessed to read your blog. I haven't been good about keeping up with blogging lately either. I miss my sweet sister's in Christ, in blogland. :) God bless. ~Jen

    1. Thank you, Jennifer. You are kind! I miss you all, too. God bless, and Merry Christmas.

  3. A day's grace at a time is my pace too! Thank you for taking the time to share this encouragement on the Art of Home-Making Mondays! Please join in again this week if you can :)

    1. Thanks, JES. I appreciate you hosting.

  4. "He shows Himself strong, even in the small places." I so needed that reminder. You encourage me in the Lord more than you know :).

    1. Aww, thanks, Iris! I'm glad we met, because you are a encouragement to me, too.
