That Invincible Feeling

That wonderful Invincible Feeling.

We have all felt it and wished we could hang on to it forever BUT as Titus found out when he walked off the end of the table, a fall will often come shortly after. I don't know if any of us can say we feel invincible as Real Estate agents... as in I know I am going to get the listing or the sale every single time we go out on a call. Real Estate, like gravity, is a very humbling master. I did once have a position where I honestly felt that way, and then I went into Real Estate.

Thank God for Grace!

Grace is available in so many aspects of life. As children most of us can remember moments of grace our parents blessed us with when we misbehaved. And not just parents but also, grandparents, siblings, teachers, friends, and even those we may have wronged by our judgments of them. Of course as adults it all repeats it self over and over again.

For Christians.

How lucky are Christian believers that our God is a God of grace and of forgiveness? Not to go deep into theology on this blog post but Christian believers can ask God earnestly for His amazing grace and He wraps us in his arms of forgiveness. What a wonderful feeling that is.

Once again I am thankful (full of gratitude) for this annual contest and for Debe Maxwell, CRS hosting this years challenge: "Thankful Thoughts: ActiveRain’s November Gratitude Challenge". I am also thankful to all who have entered it as it gives each of us many more "Ah Ha" moments that we can relate to in our own lives not to mention that we can all say "Praise the Lord" for our Active Rain brothers and sisters blessings too.

Bob, your contemplation on the invincible feeling and its fleeting nature, particularly in the real estate world, is both profound and relatable. Your acknowledgement of grace as a fundamental aspect of overcoming life's and career's ups and downs is truly inspiring. The blend of personal and professional insights, intertwined with your faith, provides a unique and thoughtful perspective on handling the challenges we face. 🌟🕊️ #LifeLessons #RealEstateReflections

One of my favorite songs, Amazing Grace, Bob. I always believed it's important to give grace and to accept it and be grateful for it when we receive it.

Endre Barath, Jr. I am sure that after you hear this man sing you will rank him on equal ground with Aretha . He has an incredible range and when he lets lose after the little harmonica part his emotion is incomparable.

He is an amazing singer Debe Maxwell, CRS and I have to say that when we listen to all the Christmas CD's we have there are a lot of Rock-in-Rollers who also do beautiful Christian hymns. Elvis did a lot of good Christian Gospel.

Thank you Dorie Dillard Austin TX . I am often moved by Christian music and there are some exceptional artists out there. Joseph Habedank is the hottest Christian artist at this time. If you have not heard him here is a link to one of the songs I love. HERE HE COMES

"Gift" is the key word here Jeff Masich-Scottsdale AZ Associate Broker,MBA,GRI as we sure do not deserve grace for what we have done.

Hi Bob- "grace" is a word we don't often hear.  It reminds me of the "grace-ful" exit I made off a sailboat onto the dock once. Fell flat on my face and broke my big toe. Thankfully those watching had the good grace not to laugh (well, not much anyway.)

I first caught this on Debe Maxwell, CRS reblog moments ago. 

Perfect timing as I am reading the Book of Luke suggested by our friend, Dr. Paula McDonald 

Truly amazing ... my body just rolls with goosebumps.  

No antics. No theater. He just stands and sings from his soul.

Just imagining your fall makes me wince Kathy Streib . When I think about people I truly consider as Graceful people, graceful to all, it is a pretty low number. Thankfully when I think of moments of grace there have been many.

He really has an amazing voice Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist . I wish he would stick to gospel but that being said I am glad he did this one. Now if only I can convince Endre Barath, Jr. to give him a listen.

Bob "RealMan" Timm excellent rendition of this song.  God gave up his only son, so that we can victorious over sin, and receive his amazing grace.

Bob "RealMan" Timm - What a beautiful man and singer! Thank you, Bob for sharing. 

As I watched the video it was as if I saw one man with many angels come out of his soul to artistically sing different parts of this most amazing song ever written and sung by any other human being that I know of. 

Know that your blog post touched my soul and I will come back here often to listen to it in my darkest hours and any time I need hope.

You are also a beautiful man with heart and soul. I hope this one gets featured. I believe you deserve it and every single member on ActiveRain could benefit.
