Unmerited Favor

New House

I recently heard a definition of “grace” that I haven’t been able to forget: “God’s grace is his unmerited favor towards us”.

We haven’t earned it.  We don’t deserve it.  But He gives it to us anyways because He loves us.

This last week has been incredible and full of God’s unmerited favor toward me and my wife and it came at just the right time: his time.  After 7 months of searching, we’ve found a church to call home where I can also serve in Youth Ministry.  Shortly after getting that exciting news we found a house to rent that was nearby the church and then received a washer and dryer from some good friends.  Again, unmerited favor.

My wife and I could not be more excited about this next big development.  We don’t know what’s going to happen next but whatever it is, it’ll be better than anything we had planned.
