Thinking About Lincoln

Had this thought, while pondering President’s Day – And the “legacy” of Lincoln – and the “controversy” of some of his pre-civil-war (and pre-conversion to Christ, to my knowledge) quotes about the inequality of blacks and whites, but nevertheless the fullness of his “legacy” in laying perhaps the GREATEST foundation for that very equality (politically)….

Every man is flawed and broken. We are not made “great” because we are perfect. Even the best of us are not remembered by a legacy because it is untainted by past mistakes and sometimes wrong convictions. Rather, we are made “great” to the degree we have been touched by the DIVINE. We are made “great” to the degree we are accomplishing the GOOD that God has designed and is bringing about, his work of REDEEMING a lost and fallen world and people, HIS WILL ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN! …

We are made “great” to the degree we are made PARTAKERS of His Spirit, because of the BLOOD of Jesus!

Thank you, Lord, for your unspeakable, immeasurable GRACE!!

About Grace2Grow

Leah holds a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, and considers herself a forever-student at heart, especially of the Word of God. The last few years have included a 160+ lbs weightloss, and a complete re-working of her "inner man" as she has had to journey from merely what she "knew" to putting that into "ACTION" .. a transformation that so rocked her core, she believes God's calling in her life includes a sense of "urgency," as the body of Christ is fully - knowingly or unknowingly - entrenched in These Last Days, just as Jesus prophesied. She has worked in various forms of professional Customer Service for nearly 20 years, from Mortgages and Banking to Automotive Plastics, and values most the opportunity to mediate and problem-solve. Leah has served over the years in varying roles, from Women's Bible Study Leader to Choir Director to Worship Leading to teaching Sunday School to working faithfully in the Nursery. She loves being a Wife and Aunt and Sister and Daughter and Friend, and loves to read just about anything she can put her hands on. She is always re-learning putting feet and muscle to these things, but she has learned there is incalculable value in "working the plan," and "being faithful with LITTLE so as to be entrusted with MUCH." And she is trusting her beloved God and Savior for the "much" yet to come. You can find more of her musings on her blogs at and, or follow her on Twitter at
