Good Morning SHE Fam! Do you ever question the cards that you were dealt? Or wonder why me? There are times when we look back over our lives and wish that certain things didn’t happen or exist. And whereas, some of the things that have transpired in our lives may have been unfortunate… the truth is that those same occurrences molded you into the person you are. You are a product of grace.

If you ever look back and wonder how you made it…trust me it was grace. We often confuse grace with a coincidence. However, grace is God’s protection and love for you. Going through life, grace and mercy carry you when you have no clue as to how you will get through.

At an early age, both my mother and my grandmother passed away. It was devastating for me, however, all that I have accomplished in life; spiritually, emotionally and professionally derived from the tragic occurrences during my teenage years. Let me tell you why…… during a time when I felt like I had no one, I was forced to depend on God. It’s the times when you feel that you are your lowest point that you truly experience God’s grace.

No matter what you’ve gone through in life; know that there’s light at the end of the tunnel. No amount of education or money can carry you further than God’s grace  and mercy can. Over the years, I’ve learned to trust my journey. I know that God has brought me through low times and will continue to guide me through.

When going through a storm or a rough time, know that God is on your side and that no problem is too big for Him. When you’re a product of grace, you are able to use past experiences as a point of reference on just how good God is. Remember that troubles don’t last but grace does!

From my inspirational corner to yours, have a blessed Thursday!
