Grace Accepts and Empowers

Grace is God accepting us as we are.
And Grace is also God lifting us up to where He is.

Grace is God loving us when we feel bound by fear, hopelessness and anxiety.
And Grace is God showing us our freedom from all those things.

Grace is God loving us in the darkness.
And Grace is God making the light of His presence to dawn on us.

Grace is God embracing us in the gutter.
And Grace is God lifting us out of the gutter.

Grace is God loving us no matter how we feel.
And Grace is God showing us that feelings don't always indicate our true reality.

Grace is God understanding our pain.
And Grace is God bringing His healing touch to our wounded places as only He can.

Grace is God forgiving the ungodly.
And Grace is God recreating us righteous!

Grace is God loving people who are dead in sin.
And Grace is God making people alive in Christ!

Grace is God taking away our sin at the cross.
And Grace is God taking us into His arms forever!

Grace is God accepting us in our shame and self-hatred.
And Grace is God lifting off that shame and self-hatred.

Grace is God embracing us when we seem unlovable.
And Grace is God giving us Himself as the Love we've dreamed of all our lives!

Grace accepts us in our weakness and nothingness.
And Grace empowers us with the very Life of Christ Himself!

                          Grace to all,
