grace to the humble

Posted: 10/08/2008 in learning, life, spiritual growth

all of you must clothe yourselves with humility for the sake of each other, because: “God opposes the arrogant, but gives grace to the humble.” 1 peter 5:5

the song, ironically enough is called “grace” by u2. it contains a couple of lines that i would like to dissect a minute. 

“what once was hurt – what once was friction – what left a mark, no longer stings because grace makes beauty out of ugly thins.”

i believe there is no statement more true than that.

this is something i strive for continuously among many things. its tough to become humility and difficult to give grace. lately i have been tested and for once i feel i passed that test. this is the first time in my life i feel i have passed.

what an amazing feeling.

i am not done struggling in this area!!!! this goes against every ounce of my sin nature, my gut reaction to difficult situations. but having passed a test, it gives me even more confidence to press on and continue to live out of my heart daily.
