Sensing Grace


Here’s what I want you to do; Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace. 

Matt 6:6 (the Message)


Sensing Grace


My days are full of possibilities,

none more exhilarating than

when I cross the threshold of grace.

Sky opens and space clears,A radiant landscape

of belonging unfolds

And held, circled by love,

I stand in sunlight

And remember faithfulness.

Warmed and awakened

I am stilled by wonder

And breathe deeply

of this subversive beauty.

Grace never loses its power

to startle,to wrong-foott

o scandalise.

Limitless and Immeasurable,

There are no strings attached.
