Spiritual Coaching Vol 2 #10 Gracious…


All week long we’ve been looking at variations of grace. Such a beautiful word. Last night a soft snowfall graced my world. Everything is covered with a graceful coating of this fluffy stuff. When I drive to work, however, I do not expect to find gracious drivers. I’ve always thought the BMV should make people take a winter driving test for a winter license. Society has a long ways to go when it comes to graciousness on the road or anywhere else for that mater.  We can become syndical if we expect others to change. We are responsible for our selves and do not control others. That is the theme today. BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU. You can’t control others but you can be in charge of you.


What inspires you to be gracious? Let that be what you focus on today and bring to others. Think of some of the truly creative and gifted people throughout history. The brought their graciousness to us like J.S. Bach, the great composer, who wrote, Where there is devotional music, God is always at hand with His gracious presence. It is a graciousness of God’s presence, whether we know it or not, that allows our gifts, talents, abilities, and personality to be shared in a meaningful way. Be you and leave the rest to God. It’s when we try to be someone else that we get in trouble. Psalm 145:8 reminds us, The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.


So be a conduit of the grace which is from above and will flow naturally through you when you become what you were created for – no pretense, no facade, just you. You are unique and beautiful to God. You are created in God’s image and thus God’s graciousness is available in and through your life. Be aware. Be alert. Be you.
