Sharing My Hope in Christ

God’s Gift of Faith
Some days are especially challenging for my adult grandson, who has a developmental disorder. On one of those rough days he asked me to find a cord for a cross so he could wear it as a necklace.
His words that followed touched my heart: “I’m a Christian, Grandma, even if I make mistakes sometimes.”
What truth! And what faith! We don’t earn being a Christian. It is God’s free gift.

We cannot earn it. And our mistakes cannot take it away.

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God”  Ephesians 2:8

  1. I’m very happy to find this page. I wanted
    to thank you for your time for this particularly wonderful read!!
    I definitely liked every part of it and I have you saved as a favorite to check out new information on your blog.

  2. Connie, Your testimonial really touched me. First, it helped me to realize just how much I’ve been focusing on my own wants and not what God wants for me. Christmas and the coming New Year provide the perfect opportunity to change my focus back toward god’s desires. I respect and admire you for taking in your teenage grandson. My friend ruth here in Davenport did that about 10 years ago, and though it’s been a mighty struggle, she continues to feel blessed. That grandson, now an adult, still has needs but is caring for ruth in her own time of need. I look forward to reading about your progress on this blog. Merry Christmas to you, your grandson, and the rest of your family and friends. Mike Hoenig, Davenport, Iowa
