Grace. It was my grandma's name. It's what my name means. It has been the subject of I-don't-know-how-many sermons, lectures and songs I've heard over the years, growing up in the church and attending Bible college. Even so, when it comes to understanding God's grace for me, I've just begun to scratch the surface. I have settled all too often for a shallow, defeated, quasi-Christianity instead of embracing the fullness of His grace. Thanks to Pastor Milton Vincent for bringing this deficiency to my attention in a most thoughtful and heartfelt manner, during the recent Utah/Idaho BMW (Biblical Ministries Worldwide) Field Retreat. And thanks to Laura Story for writing and recording this sincere, reflective song—which I've found myself adding to just about every playlist I've built for KEYY since the Retreat. Her song solidifies in my mind and heart much of what Pastor Milton spoke of, and I hope it rings true for you, too.
Good stuff, huh?
Will you let me do something for you? I want to purchase an mp3 and send it to you, so you can listen to Laura Story's "Grace" whenever you need a reminder of the incredible riches of God's grace for you. Just get me your email address somehow, if I don't already have it, and I'll "gift" the song to you on iTunes. Leave a comment, or go the more secure route and email me (k c l a r k 3 4 @ y a h o o . c o m).
