My mother learnt to sew in her mid teens during the early 1950’s in Jamaica. Mummy can sew. She can take a piece of fabric and turn it in anything. She is a master seamstress.
My mother can take an outfit that is made for a size 14 and tailor it so someone who is a size 10 can wear it. She made all of our clothes growing up, its her therapy. When she needed quiet time or to relax she would retreat with her patterns, thread, fabric and sewing machine.
Thinking about her made me think of God’s grace. It is tailor made for you and it is tailor made for me. A perfect fit for my heart!
Let’s take a look at a couple of verses that talk of God’s grace:
Hebrews 4:16 ~ Did you know that grace has a throne, a place where you can go and receive? You can go there and find help in the time of need.
Ephesians 2:6-8 ~ God’s grace has exceeding riches and it is His gift to me.
God’s grace is rich and it is a gift for you to receive and wear. It’s a beautiful garment. I dare you to try it on because it will be a perfect fit!
