“If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared. I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.” (Psalms 130:3-6) ESV
Good morning, Child of Grace,
The other day, I was a witness to a heart in a broken place, so crushed. I felt the pain lying just beneath the surface and became witness to the Source of Life holding this precious child together. Awareness heightened, as I checked in with my own history of brokenness.
The Holy Spirit closed the gap between us. And, His holiness began a brand new work.
I wonder what kind of brokenness will you bring to the game? What fears and failures will accompany you and close the gaps between you and your people? What broken places and places of grace will reach out to heal?
It is no accident – our broken parts. Those places where we learn that grace is both a beautiful and terrible thing. Beautiful when we allow ourselves to receive it; and terrible when we are crushed by the weight of our brokenness and have to wholly feel every part of our pain as we choose to give it to the one/ones who tried to break us.
What will you do with grace?
Feel the grace.
