Soulcare in the midst of Chaos

Trista Laborn

We are often so weighed down by comparison, anxiety, and fear that the idea that grace could look amazing on them feels unbelievable. Being weighed down with chaos, with everything that is going on, like the coronavirus, fear of the unknown, anxiety, insert what weights you down. But all around us are flashes of grace, shining examples of God’s love.

It turns out earning our way is simply not included in the fabric of grace. Instead, grace is woven with a gift after gift from God. It's about Him, who He is, and what He has done, not us, and who we are or aren't. It's about trusting in Jesus our true source of grace and reflecting His love to the world.

Amy Seiffert, the author of "Grace looks amazing on you (100 days of reflecting God's love), says it’s the everyday moments that Jesus shines through:

  • Making time for a friend even when your to-do list is pages long;
  • Apologizing to your neighbor when you don’t want to admit you are wrong.
  • Opening the Bible when your soul feels hollow and empty.
  • I recently experience someone who paid for my tea latte, on my way to work, after just yelling at my kids for not doing their chores.
  • Waking up on an ordinary Monday and being content with where God has placed you? Grace is guiding your steps.

Making the choice to accept God’s limitless love no matter what and reflecting it back to the world around you—friend, that’s when His grace looks amazing on you.

A perfect gift to affirm and encourage any woman, Grace Looks Amazing on You is a timeless Christian message packed with personal stories and reflection, Scripture, and deep biblical truth. This 100-day devotional will help you change your perspective so you can confidently radiate the grace of Christ.

Insight: "God's grace looks like promises fulfilled even in the face of unbelief"

Simplifying our Soul

This has been a new concept I've been walking for some years now and that includes everything from the inside out. At the end of the day after so much chaos, Jesus boils it down to the essentials and simplifies what we should seek after:

Matthew 22:37-40 (MSG)- "Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence. This is the most important, the first on ANY list. But there is a second to set alongside it: Love others as well as you love yourself. These two commands are pegs, everything in God's Law and the Prophets hangs from them."

It doesn't have to complex. Jesus didn't come to make things harder. He came to set us free. And that looks amazing on us.
