SHOW ME A GARDEN THAT'S BURSTING INTO LIFE...
and I will show you someone who is coming to understand and feel the grip of grace.
"I need your grace
to remind me
to find my own."
It's the wastefulness of God's grace that sets people free. While people remain in a place of fear they will never let their guard down. They actually remain in a place of scrambling to fix their own mess and that of others and grace stands waiting, inviting them to give up the game. A mind set on the flesh can never free us, and fear and shame and guilt have a way of keeping the mind set on the flesh...busy applying law in an attempt to find something that only comes as we accept this amazing transforming grace that Father, Son and Spirit have freely given. It's grace that brings forth new life.
Do we live like we believe it?
