Grace isn’t just for the falling.

Grace isn’t just to hold us until we can hold our own

Grace isn’t just for the weakness

Grace isn’t just for the aftermath

Grace isn’t just for the sting

Grace isn’t just for the guilty

Grace is for life; the necessary thing; the timely hug, the hand of comfort, the whisper of courage, the strength of forgiveness, the full cup we offer to others, the soothing rhythm of the rocking chair, the call from a friend…  It isn’t about when.  It is a constant companion.  It’s the “how” of life.  This is what it takes to live and grope through the darkness to catch a little glimmer of light.

2 Corinthians 1:12- For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.
