Ever need alittle grace and mercy to get through the day? I find myself there right now. I stayed throughout the night at WLBT breaking into programming, tracking the storms and tornadoes. I left at 3am, went home and left it all in Eric Law's capable hands. I had just gotten in the bed shortly before 4am and the National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for Madison County. The tornadic rotation was headed straight for our subdivision (again). It passed over, not touching down, and I drifted off to sleep around 4:45am.
I look down at my feet and legs now and I look like a cross between the Michelin Man and the Pillsberry Doughboy--my feet and legs are so swollen, I can't even see my toes. But I'll be headed back to work in a few hours to do it all over again, minus the bad weather.
In those days when we need alittle grace to get through the day, whether its due to fatigue, disappointment or hurt, the Bible says God freely gives us what we need. James 4:6 says, "God gives me more and more grace. That is why He says, 'God sets Himself against the proud and haughty, but give grace continually to the lowly.'"
