An Uncommon Grace

29 02 2008

I grew up hearing it sung, humming the tune and even singing along but I was around 27 before i truly began to get a glimpse of what the song meant.  I was in my thirties before I can say I fully embraced it for life.  And I am still learning, experiencing, living and embracing it.  Amazing Grace!

I experienced it before I knew what it was.  God in His goodness gave me His grace at a young age.  I believed and placed my faith in Christ.  However, I did not know how to live in it till much latter.  As I share about God’s goodness and how His grace has transformed, renewed, restored and rebuilt.  I hope we all will see and understand it more.

I call my blog An Uncommon Grace because although, just like the song, grace is not uncommon at all.  It is everywhere.  It is always offered.  Often experienced.  Grace is uncommon in that we rarely fully live it, even less often display it ourselves, and almost always stumble through it.  

I am excited to see where God takes us!
