Grace and Peace

Updated: Oct 31, 2020

I NEED God’s grace and peace in my life. You need it. Not one of us deserves God’s grace, yet He freely lavishes it on us. We were in a dungeon, held shackled to the wall by sin, under the penalty of death. God sent His precious Son to smash open the prison doors, to break the chains, to proclaim liberty to us — the captives.

I am so thankful He whom the Son sets free is free indeed. God bids us walk out of the prison and into newness of life. He invites us to walk in the light of His love. How incredible. So amazing.

Jesus said, "I will be with you always, even to the end of the world" Matthew 28:20. Paul the Apostle said, "Grace and Peace to you From God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ."1 Corinthians 3:1. His grace and peace will be with us no matter what storms arrive in our lives.

God has loved you since before you were born. Choose to rest in His love and mercy, precious one. Will you allow His peace to fill your heart and mind? Will you trust Him? "May the peace of God that passes all understanding guard your heart and mind." Philippians 4:7

Whatever happens to us on Earth can never compare with the joy of being with God forever. The present sufferings of this life are not worthy to be compared to the glory that shall be revealed in us. You are greatly loved. More than you can ever imagine.

"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." John 16:33 Trust God. Blessings, Beloved.

About Me

Rena was born a block away from a fascinating tide pool in Vancouver, British Columbia. (She loves tide pools, painting, reading, writing...)

She has been an  Elementary and High School teacher for 18 years - is married and has four adult children - and has had the amazing opportunity to travel the globe as an Ambassador with the Department of Eternal Affairs.

Rena began writing her story - one of rejection, betrayal, and healing from brokenness - while sitting under a mosquito net in China. Two years later she put all the scribbly notes together at a guest house in Haifa, Israel. "A Life Set Free" was born.

"Bubs Bunny Goes to Camp", "Mommy & Baby's Journal", and her latest book -"MANHUNT" - Book 1 in "The Narrow Path Trilogy" -are all available on Amazon.

God took an abandoned, fearful child and is using her life to show the impossible is possible when our lives are surrendered to Him. He can do more than we ask or think. She sincerely hopes this blog blesses and encourages you. 

Blessings, Beloved.
