So life happened this week and I wasn’t able to pull out posts on Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday night our church youth group participated in Fields of Faith. It is an event that takes place on an athletic field where the students invite their friends and lead prayers for the community, leaders, schools, etc. It took place after our local high school’s football game which ended much later than expected. Thursday night my daughter had a volleyball and then I was playing catch-up for my Friday night Bible study.
So I pray that grace will be extended to me for missing two days. 🙂
I heard Matthew West’s new song “Grace Wins” twice today on my hour and half drive each way for a meeting today. This portion of the song really stood out to me as I listened to the words…
For the prodigal son, grace wins
For the woman at the well, grace wins
For the blind man and the beggar, grace wins
For always and forever, grace wins
For the lost out on the street, grace wins
For the worst part of you and me, grace wins
For the thief on the cross, grace wins
For a world that is lost
There’s a war between guilt and grace
And they’re fighting for a sacred space
But I’m living proof
Grace wins every time
For all the times I fail or fall short, grace wins every time.
