Five Minute Friday: Graceful

20120906-234330.jpg

It’s Five Minute Friday again! People all over the world blogging on the same topic on the same day for just five minutes and linking up at Lisa Jo’s place. Today’s topic: Graceful.

Go.

I live in a constant state of grace.

The insecure girl turned insecure woman trying to raise four confident-in-Christ daughters. I am all too aware of my own flaws and failures and I would mess them up for sure if it were not for His grace.

Only through Him can this wallflower step out into the spotlight and be full enough of His grace to dance. To show my sweet girls that we are all things beautiful to Him and He fills us until we are more graceful than we ever imagined possible.

There are no awkward girls with two left feet. No one hanging out at the punch table pretending not to care that they have not been asked to dance. No poor girl in a hand-me-down dress that she hemmed and bedazzled herself in a sorry attempt to copy the latest trend.

He is enthralled with our beauty, each and every one of us. We each get to be the belle of the ball.

In Him, we have received grace upon grace.

We are graceful.

Even those of us who never were.

Stop.

  1. Stacy, I love that “He is enthralled with our beauty” and we can “step out into the spotlight and be full enough of His grace.” What a beautiful picture…one that provokes confidence and courage! And I bet you’re an amazing mom to those girls!! Happy weekend 🙂
