The Choicest Graces

And so faith, hope, love abide
[Faith – conviction and belief respecting man’s relation to God and divine things;
Hope – joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation;
Love – true affection for God and man, growing out of God’s love for and in us], these three;
But the greatest of these is love.
I Corinthians 13:13 (AMPC).

Dear Lord, please help us to walk in these choicest graces today. May we have deep revelation of what it means to live out faith, hope, and love. Thank you for the price You paid so that we could have life eternal, and the opportunity to share Your faith, hope, and love.

I would love for you to share your experience(s) with any one or all of these choicest graces.


Jacquie ♥

I am a writer and counselor, who embraces joy and holds tight to hope. I live with my husband Ken, of 44 years, and he is the love of my life. I enjoy inspirational and devotional writing, home decor, gardening, and being in community. My husband and I are missionaries to children in Washington State, and love the privilege of being with them.

  1. Amen! Faith, love and hope – God’s grace to us. Because of His great love for us, He gave us inmerited favor so that we can have faith to hope in Him. Thank you for this wonderful reminder.

  2. This reminds me of the Alan Jackson song 😊. It’s difficult to narrow an experience on something that so deeply permeates my life. I love Jesus. I hope to be with my family in heaven. I have faith that God is a God of love and miracles. ❤️.

    1. Amen! I find it impossible not to have that “confident expectation of salvation” for all that I encounter. Your statement is so true, “It’s difficult to narrow an experience on something that so deeply permeates my life.” What’s the name of the Alan Jackson song? 😉

  3. Love is easy with the lovely. However, love is truly shared, and Jesus like, when it includes the “the least, the last, and the lost.” PS Count me in as an Alan Jackson fan!

  4. I love hope, because being able to place my hope in Christ allows me to be able to look beyond the circumstances and know that He is great and always in control. He always has a plan that we can hope in, even when we don’t yet have all the details. Thanks Jacquie! 💗

    1. That has been my word the last two years, and John 15 has been foundational in my walk. My current words are: Devotion and Remain (which is akin to abide) so clearly I have more to learn in that regard. I love having company on this miraculous journey with the Lord! Thank you so much for sharing this ♥♥
