grace comes after you

IMG_0522God’s Grace has a drenching about it.  A wildness about it.  A white-water, riptide turn-you-upside-downess about it.  GRACE COMES AFTER YOU.

The day started off with me anticipating my first drift fly-fishing trip.   The morning sun was warming up the day and the fish were biting.  Off to the west the dark clouds were starting to build as we drifted into the middle-fork of the Flathead River and the current was beginning to churn.  All of a sudden our lazy day fishing on the river turned into a white-water, turn you around, try to avoid the rocks in your flat bottom boat adventure.  Our plans were no longer our own.  It was time to brace for the ride!

My mind flashed back to our ride down the Flathead River as I read from Max Lucado’s book Grace, the sentences:

God’s Grace has a drenching about it.  A wildness about it.  A white-water, riptide turn-you-upside-downess about it.  GRACE COMES AFTER YOU.

And so it is with Grace.

Grace comes after you.

It rewires you.

From insecure to God secure.

From regret-riddled to better-off-because-of it.

From afraid-to-die to ready-to-fly.

Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off.

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:26 HCSB

See to it that no one misses the grace of God.
Hebrews 12:15 NIV

Have you been drenched by Grace?

About beegee10

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
