Someone told me today that you can try to give as much grace as you can, but there comes a time when you have to say, “you need to get your shit together.” And I guess there might be some truth to that, but imagine if that’s what God said to me.
"Sorry Netanya, but you used up all my grace. I can’t give you anymore."
Gosh. Thankful that His grace is never-ending, that He is molding me and transforming my heart, and always pulling me back into His goodness.
So I was still
I was under your spell
When I was told by Jesus all was well
So all must be well
Just give me time
You know your desires and mine
Wrap my flesh in ivory and in twine
For I must be well
Keep the earth below my feet
For all my sweat, my blood runs weak
Let me learn from where I have been
So keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn
Well keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn
-Mumford & Sons “Below my feet”
"I can no longer condemn or hate a brother for whom I pray, no matter how much trouble he causes me. His face, that hitherto may have been strange and intolerable to me, is transformed in intercession into the countenance of a brother for whom Christ died, the face of a forgiven sinner." -Bonhoeffer

Couldn’t find a video for this, but here is the just released clip of Tim Chaddick’s sermon on “why Jesus creates stories” at the Resurgence Conference. Never heard a more moving story about grace and redemption. Can’t forget those lines—“I see you under the blood of Jesus”. Overwhelmingly beautiful. Give it a listen.
Stole this from my girl Caroline. Love her for always reminding me of God’s overflowing grace.
