Grace O’Malley, (Gráinne Ní Mháille), Ireland’s Pirate Queen was a woman of fire and adventure. She was a pirate, mercenary, chieftain and noblewoman in her lifetime. Born in 1530 at Clare Island Castle in Clew Bay, County Mayo, Ireland, she is commonly known by her nicknames “Granuaile” and “The Sea Queen of Connaught” in Irish folklore and history.
Notice that God gives us grace. He doesn't say "you have to earn this, you have to pass a test, and He does not ask us to do Him something nice. He gives us grace because He is a giving God and desires for us to receive it to give to others.
When we begin to allow ourselves to receive grace, forgiveness, mercy… when we accept them vulnerably and humbly into our lives and hearts, we’ll find the giving of it to be an overflow of what we’ve been given. The humility in being forgiven and receiving graces empowers us to extend it to others... <<CLICK THE IMAGE TO KEEP READING THE DEVOTION>>
