Making Space …for grace and all that follows

Making space for grace changes it all. Nothing is ever ordinary when grace is involved.
Grace takes us beyond the edges.
Grace never shoves down but, rather, always lifts up.
Grace shines light in the hidden places as well as out in the open, revealing it’s always enough.
Think on these God-words written long ago:

BUT he said to me: “My grace is sufficient for you” (2 Corinthians 12:9, NIV).

Of course, I must take note that the writer, Paul, starts with a big BUT. And.  It’s big.
BUT.  The powerful two-letter word “is” could be considered the whole point of the message.
This word reveals the sufficiency of grace is ongoing—it just won’t stop one day—it’s continual.
Let this truth go deep in your soul. Remember it. Because. There are days when it seems like grace is far away and nobody or nothing can pull us out of the pit of despair.

Grace is as close as breath. Grace is the power at work when all else fails with a grip so strong that it never lets go. Grace is now and forever sufficient.

Make space for grace every. single. day. Because. Grace is— Kerrie
