31 Days of Grace: Grace Says

31 Days of Grace
Day 3 

Grace says you were dead.  I brought you back to life.

Grace says you stole.  I am returning what you've taken and erasing it from your record.

Grace says you were unfaithful.  I welcome you back with open arms.

Grace says this road is going to be rocky.  I will hold your hand.

Grace says the waves are overtaking you.  I will keep your head above water.

Grace says you were rude.  I will respond kindly.

Grace says you were ignorant.  I will give you wisdom.  

Grace says you hurt me deeply.  I love you deeper still.

Grace says you told me no.  I will give you another chance to say yes.  

Grace kisses the face of the prodigal son upon his return home.

Grace melds sinners into the lineage of Christ.

Grace uses murderers, prostitutes, and tax collectors to accomplish great things.

Grace places your fingers in the nail-scarred hands, the pierced side and says, This should have been yours but instead it is Mine.  

Grace, grace, God's grace.  Grace that will pardon and cleanse within.  Grace, grace, God's grace.  Grace that is greater than all our sin.
