Is anybody out there listening? Do you know of many people who live unable to get over the grace of God? What I mean by that is, I feel myself living more and more with this overwhelming sense of this transforming power in my life. I feel I have been stuck here for awhile now. AND I NEVER WANT TO LEAVE THIS PLACE. In the middle of my sometimes messy life, there it is. When I look at the natural beauty that surrounds me, there it is. With my wife and three daughters if we are laughing or crying, and yes, even when we are fighting, there it is.Gone are the days of living my life thinking this is mostly about me getting it right instead of it being about Jesus and him having already set it straight. I'm learning to simply live in him as the safest place to be, knowing it is he who has the skills to do in me what I can not do. I find myself just wanting him. It is so laughable to try to boast about the things that are changing in me. He is doing a work in me that I wasn't even aware needed done a few months back.
