Grace and Truth {July 29}

When we live with Assumptions of Grace, we extend ourselves and others grace by assuming the best in each person, place, and thing we encounter. Will we always succeed? Uhh, no…I wish! But when we create a mindful intention to assume only the best in others and give it our best try, we get big shifts in our lives, hearts, and minds.
— Kylie Howell

"Assumptions of Grace" At first glance, it might sound like optimism, but it's more than that.  It's choosing to trust God and look at people the way God sees them.  I love that term and I loved this week's featured post by Kylie Howell, called, Stop Waiting For the Other Shoe to Drop.  I hope you'll read it and be as encouraged by it as I was. 

Thanks for linking up with us last week. Feel free to grab a featured button below!
