You all do not disappoint.
If you go back and read the comment section on Grace smells like Jergens lotion, you’ll see what I mean. There were no flippant, short, hey lady I just want a free book comments. You talked about tables where gatherings happened long gone, death of loved ones, emotions all over the place, losing it with kids, picked plums, a beloved family story, newborns, and poetry.
Your comments were a grace to me. To us, here in the messy middle of life. You pulled back the curtain a bit and let us know a bit more about the nitty gritty of your life.
In the first chapter of Epic Grace, Kurt writes:
God’s gentle grace comforts us when we are deeply wounded.
His larger-than-life grace covers us when we are wrestling with hardship.
His empowering grace helps us stay the course when the going gets tough.
And God’s epic grace shows us how to rise above our pain and circumstances with enduring hope and faith in him.
So what does God tell us to do in the midst of suffering? He urges us to persevere — which is only made possible by his grace.
Go back and look at the comment section. Choose one person and pray for them today. And if you’d like for us to be praying for you, leave a comment here (it can be anonymous) and know you’ll be prayed for.
The winner of the free book is Kelly Grace! Can you believe it? I love random-not-so-random drawings :)
