Journey of Grace

So, I have to say that God has been taking me through a hard time lately. He's teaching me how to trust Him. That's something that we, as believers talk about a lot and maybe even encourage people to do, but do we really know what that means? What does it mean to truly trust God in all areas of our lives? The dictionary says that trust is, "reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety of a person... confident expectation of something; hope." Hmmm..... interesting.....
Well my friends, that's where I'm at with Him. He's basically opened my life up and is letting me see all the ugliness inside. Let me tell you... it ain't pretty. To be honest, I don't care to divulge all of my deep dark ugliness right here on my blog, but I will tell you that it's been a very difficult, but grace-filled journey. Some really good things have come from it. Seeing myself as I am, broken and totally in need, has helped me to see Him for how great He is and how much I am in need of His grace every day. I am dependent on it. I need it for every moment of every day.
I'ts been a journey of discovering my true identity as a believer in Christ; what it means to be forgiven, completely accepted, totally loved, and entirely dependent on His Grace. I'm still learning to lean into Him and believe that what He says about me really is true. So what's your story?
