Prv 14:1 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.

  I certainly want to be a wise woman.  I have lived long enough to see this verse come to pass both in the positive and negative light.  
 The first time I read this verse I was 20 and single and a new Christian.  This verse became a one of those guiding light passages for my life.  
Since I am into "doing" I wanted and want to make sure I built good things.  I built a legacy of faith for my young kids and together with Steve we built a house of faith and stability  that all the generations of our family could find shelter. 
 We are still building, still influencing and still praying for our "house"and will continue till the day we  see Jesus face to face.


In my reading this week I have been focusing on this verse in Galatians:


I have been thinking about the  application  of this verse in my walk and in turn how this affects my world.  Do I frustrate the grace of God in my life, do I deny it's power in my circumstances?

We all have circumstances, I could give you a laundry list of things that get piled up in the  carnal corridors of my mind - the same ones I have locked the grace of God out of.

It frustrates me just thinking about how carnal I can be. 
I have to say why did I think that? Say that? Stew over that?  Why did I lock out grace to entertain hurt or frustration? After almost 40 years of reading my bible, praying in the spirit, why am I still so dumb?  Fortunately I have the answer, it is because I am still in the flesh. And that flesh is still at war with the things of the Spirit.  The good news remains the good news, greater is he that is in me than he that in the world  1Jn 4:4 and there is no limit to grace, no quota for redemption. 
We are His and He is ours.

I am going to continue to work on NOT frustrating the grace of God in my life, how about you?
I am going to put the list of my faults away and look deeply at the riches of that grace, it's mercy and it's love.
