Peace and Grace

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. – Romans 5:1-2 NKJV


It is my faith in You, Jesus, that keeps me sane and gives me peace. I am eternally grateful for that peace and I thank You. My faith in You justifies me and gives me the grace I need to forgive others. Help me to do that today. Help me to look at those who have wounded me as You look at me—without blame and with love. Keep me in Your hand and give me Your strength as I go through this day. Amen.
