FOG: Focus on Gratitude Day 31

If you’re below a certain age you don’t know about the Wonder Twins. Growing up, I thought these two members of the Hanna Barbera cast of comic characters were pretty cool.

They touched their rings together saying, “Wonder Twins, activate, form of___________.” And then one could take some form of water, the other the form of an animal. They had limited capacity on their own.

The “magic happened” when they came together.

I’m grateful…

Grace and peace are the wonder twins of my faith.

It’s one thing to know God supplies blessing and favor I don’t deserve—grace. And another thing to experience unexplainable calm in my spirit though there’s visible and palpable chaos around me—peace.

But when you know they work synergistically, that you maintain peace amid lack and distress because God supplies you wisdom and resources—that’s where the magic faith happens. Grace and peace give teeth to my faith.

 

Focus on Gratitude:

What are your “wonder twins” of faith?

FOG: Focus on Gratitude Day 30

My dad called me from the hospital yesterday.

A homeopathic treatment he tried got him into a “little” trouble. The fact that he’s in his 80s with the physique and health history of someone in his 40s contributes to his adventuresome nature in this area.

But sometimes despite the most diligent research you find yourself in a pickle.

I’m grateful…

He’s fine now, awaiting discharge. Thank you, Jesus! Lord be wisdom unto my daddy and all of us, because there is a way that seems right to us but leads to death in the end (Proverbs 14:12, NIV). Lead us in the way of life, in Jesus’ name, amen.

 

Focus on Gratitude:

Where would we be without God’s grace?
