Grace is smashing the calculator and using all the broken buttons and pieces to make a mosaic.
Grace isn’t about having a second chance; grace is having so many chances that you could use them through all eternity and never come up empty.
It’s when you finally realize the other shoe isn’t going to drop, ever.
It’s the moment you feel as precious and handmade as every star, when you feel, finally, at home for the very first time.
Grace is when you finally stop keeping score and when your realize that God never was, that His game is a different one entirely.
Grace is when the silence is so complete that you can hear your own heart beat and right within your ribs God’s beating heart too.
Grace allows me to do more than just erase my mistakes; it allows me to become more than I was when I did those things.
