"... undertand that God's grace is completely selfless ... A faith that breathes knows that when we fail and fumble in life, God's grace is there waiting for us ... " from the book FAITH THAT BREATHES
I wish I could say that my grace is completely selfless ... or that anything I do is completely selfless. My grace and my love are too frequently conditional. God puts no conditions on His grace or love or anything else He gives us.
I also wish I had the faith described above, a faith that breathes and knows that when I fail and fumble (which is too often the case), God's grace is there waiting for me. When I fail and fumble (everyday occurrences), I tend to beat myself up. I mentally yell at myself, saying things I would never say to anyone else. And what does that say about my faith? That it is weak and fragile and infantile.
This I know for sure: God's grace is sufficient for all of us. When I can accept that, perhaps my faith will breathe as it is meant to.
