My experience has led me to notice that most of us tend to ‘say grace’ not out of a spirit of awe and wonder, but more often with a posture of obligation, duty, and routine. It’s just what you do, in some circles, after your aunt has prepared her casserole for your uncle’s birthday.
If we’re honest, connecting grace to annual casserole traditions hasn’t helped our eyes learn how to search for true grace.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Grace can be and is always more available than we tend to be.
And the second we allow ourselves to become available is the second grace becomes the very air we breathe.
Until we start seeing grace in the very chair we’re sitting in, we’ll continue to be blind in our steps that follow.
So look for grace today.
Even if it’s just to yourself, say something when you see it.
Watch it start to multiply.
Watch yourself start to be it.
We always will see through the eyes of what we’re becoming.
