I think we are so prone to be forgetful of grace. "God's grace is not a reactionary force that comes into effect when we come short - it's the breath in our lungs, it's our next step..." We confine our understanding of grace to God loving us and redeeming us despite our sinful nature and calling us His beloved. As important as this truth may be, we are so distracted and inattentive to thanking God for providing just enough mercy for the every day.
Grace is having your eyes opened to the extent of your filth and brokenness. Grace is all your shortcomings being covered by the blood of Christ. Grace is knowing the greatest love of all and being able to call it your own. Grace is being found just as you are, empty-handed and persistently falling short, but made full with courage and freedom. Grace is waking up every morning. Grace is fighting to take a breath in the tempest of life. Grace is the teary-eyed, throat hurting laughter you crack with the people you love. Grace is when tears are streaming down your cheeks in the middle of the night as you sit there trembling with fear for your life and for the lives of the people you love.
Grace never fails to point us back to the majestic beauty of God and His love for us. Grace reminds us of God's faithfulness to His people. Grace reminds us of the humility and obedience of Christ at calvary and the suffering he has silently endured for people like us. I hope you realize that grace is sufficient and pouring out every moment. It is my hope for you to sing out and proclaim, "majesty," as you are reminded that all is an outcome of an overabundance of grace and love.
"It is grace, nothing but grace."
