First Blog Ever!

I know I should be sleeping, but I’m really excited to get this blog started! Yes, I teach Sunday school in the morning and yes, I will be extremely tired tomorrow, but isn’t that what Sunday’s are for, resting? I am sure I will see a nice nap in my future tomorrow!
I first want to welcome you to my blog, ByHisGrace! For truly, if it wasn’t for God’s grace and what all He has done for me, I truly don’t know where I would be. I shutter to think about it! I am currently doing an Online Bible Study (OBS) with Proverbs 31 Ministries and Lysa TerKeurst. It is called “Yes To God” and I have to say I am just beside myself as I have progressed and finished week one! #YesToGod
I invite you to visit and click on the Online Bible Study link and see what’s going on! Over 120 countries and around 22,000 woman from all over the world are doing this study together! Can you say, “AWESOME”?
I will leave you with one thought for my first blog. This really caught my eye and touched my heart when I read this one week ago when I started this #YesToGod study. If you are to hand someone something, and they are to take it from you, aren’t their palms facing upwards towards the heavens in order to receive it from you and be able to hold to it and keep it from falling or them from losing it? The same applies for when God has something to give us! We are to have our palms of our hands facing heaven when we are praying in order for God to give us what He wants us to have. We need to “receive” our blessings, our callings, and our assignments, if you will. So this week I encourage you to have your #palmsup when you are praying so you can receive the answers to your prayers or #whatever God has for you!

I love you more,


About byhisgrace686

I am a wife, mommy, and a registered nurse who loves Jesus! I have been a Christian for 27 years and no, it has not always been easy. But God has been faithful and kept me all this time! I teach the young adult Sunday school class at my local church, the Kenova Church of God (associated with the church of God out of Cleveland, Tennessee). I am a scrapbooker by heart, and a Pinterest addict by default. I love to read (Lysa TerKeurst, Beth Moore, Max Lucado, Elizabeth George and Karen Kingsbury, to name a few). Studying God's Word is a passion and I just can't get enough of it! That's why I started this blog! I wanted to connect with more people, especially women, in these difficult days while we wait on the return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I am here to encourage, remind, and share what God has done for not only me, but others in my life! Please join me and lets be like Esther and be pleasing in God's sight and find HIS favor...for who knows, maybe He brought us together for "such a time as this!" Esther 4:14 View all posts by byhisgrace686
