What is the fear in grace? Is it the pride that we may be wrong when we give it? That we will be the ones looking foolish for trusting with our heart and not our heads.
I need so much grace every day. I know how weak I am and would not make it through but not for the grace of God. Grace to get over myself. Grace to love the unlovable. Grace to swallow my pride when I want to shout and scream that I know what I'm doing and you are wrong!
So much grace.
What is holding me back from giving what I have received? That is the question I am asking myself. Why do I find it so hard to forgive those that hurt me when Jesus was tortured and killed for all the ways I've hurt him. And he did so willingly and lovingly.
He saw the bigger picture.
I pray I can see it too.
STOP. writing for 5 minutes (unedited-ok, very little editing ;) grace, please) on grace with Lisa Jo Baker and the rest of the FMF writing community.
