From Elizabeth’s Heart – Counting on God’s Grace and Peace

You, my friend, are a truly special woman! Do you know how I know? Because you are pursuing grace and peace by spending time in these devotions and in God’s Word. When God lives within you, His Spirit causes you to yearn for a gentle calm in your life.

Are you struggling or suffering? Are you facing a painful loss? A common response women have when they’re first asked to contemplate a “gentle and quiet spirit” is to declare, “But I can’t be like that! I can’t remain calm when there’s trouble.” This is true, if you are relying on your own strength. But when you appropriate God’s great enablers—His grace and His peace—you can achieve gentleness and calmness even during hard times. You just need to:

  • Count on God’s grace. It’s given. It’s here. It’s available.
  • Pray for God’s grace. Your awareness of God’s grace will expand when you give more things and more of you to Him.
  • Get on with life. Regardless of your struggles, it’s possible—and important—to have something positive to show for your suffering, including a greater knowledge of how much God loves you, cares for you, and provides for you.

It’s encouraging to think about God’s grace and peace. They are two of the loveliest, most restful gifts He bestows on us.

Grace to you and peace be multiplied.
1 Peter 1:2

Our True Citizenship by Jim and Elizabeth George
Our True Citizenship

by Elizabeth George February 07, 2023

The temptation for worldly acceptance comes when you lose sight of your identity. As a believer in Christ you are a Kingdom citizen. You are a sojourner and a pilgrim, merely passing through this life on your way to eternity. Don’t get too settled in a world and a life that is passing away.

Keeping a Prayer Journal by Elizabeth and Jim George
Keeping a Prayer Journal

by Elizabeth George January 31, 2023

I know from personal experience that living a life of prayer is not easy. Our lives are filled with a multitude of activities that tend to crowd out time for prayer. How many times have you been guilty of telling someone that you would pray for them? Your heart genuinely yearned to be a part of bringing their need before the throne of God. And then what happened? I’m sure that, if you’re like me, more times than you would like to admit, you forgot about the promise to pray before you rounded the corner of the church building! Why? Because you didn’t write the request down.
