As I have been sharing the stories of God's grace, many of my blog friends and readers have pointed out to me how God's grace is evident throughout my life and my stories. That may be true. But I want to be 100% honest with you friends. Sometimes I don't always see the evidence of God's grace in my life or in the world. There are many times when I question where God's grace is! I look and look and still cannot always find God's grace.
When the church isn't welcoming to all God's people, I find myself asking "Where is God's grace?"
When another horrific event happens in the news, I again keep asking "Where is God's grace?"
When my friends are battling the darkness of depression and cannot find the light, I continually ask "God, where is your grace?"
When relationships are already broken, I ask again and again "Where is God's grace?"
When I struggled in seminary, I asked "Where is God's grace?"
When my parents divorced, I also asked "Where is God's grace?"
I have a feeling that you do not always see God's grace either. I'll bet each and every one of us has played a game of hide and seek trying to find God's grace in our midst. But the truth is that God's grace is often right in front of our noses and eyes. God's grace is available to all God's people but we can't always see it or find it. Yet God's grace is never beyond any of our reach.
"There is no life so deeply and tragically sinful that it's beyond the reach of God's amazing rescuing grace"--Paul Tripp
