Welcome to On the Other Side of Grace. I am Diana. My closest people call me Deedee. Actually, everyone calls me Deedee unless you are the bank, the insurance company, or the officer pulling me over for speeding……. I want to share with you a journey of grace extended but undeserved and how it has transformed my life. I am so glad that you are here and it is my hope that you will see how an ordinary girl from a small town in Arkansas is loved and forgiven, cared for and watched over, extended all of the good things in life, better than any princess. Welcome to the Other Side of Grace.
And He said unto me, My Grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
“Grace”, according to Webster’s dictionary is God’s unmerited divine assistance given to humans for their regeneration or sanctification. I added God to the definition they give because He is the only “divine” I know.
“Grace of God”, according to Webster is the free and unmerited favor or beneficence of God; God’s grace is manifested in the salvation of sinners. It’s free. In the Hebrew language, Grace means favor. I, like everyone else, turn to Google on occasion to further investigate topics. I loved this! Someone asked Google How do we obtain God’s grace? Google answered, “To receive grace from God, to live in His grace, to gain His power over sin…Simply humbly believe in Him. It really is that simple. And while I often times question Google – they got this right!
Now that you know a little more about what grace means, let’s see it in real life application. Stick with me for a real life account of grace. You will be enlightened with true accounts of my life that are funny, serious, sad, happy, but mostly I pray, inspiring, as you see that God’s grace covers even the craziest things life can throw at you.
