This morning as I walked into the office, I noticed that one layer of clouds was moving swiftly across the sky while another, higher layer appeared pretty static. And I thought, "That's how the layers of life work. Some parts move and change while other aspects remain still and even sometimes stagnate.
Then I sat down at my desk, logged on to LinkedIn, and stumbled across a note I'd written a friend almost a year ago.
"I'm doing really well, thanks. Very happy, very at peace, very moving on.
"Even in the most heartbreaking, soul-crushing seasons, God blankets me with grace and inspires joy in my soul.
"In hindsight, his infidelities and the divorce were a gift. They forced me to receive grace and know how to give it in return. I always had a problem with feeling forgiven and free and worthy, remember? It took the ripping out of my heart to finally fully understand and relish the gift of grace that's been waiting for me all along. Freedom!"
Life sometimes gets stagnant. Grace never does. Grab on to it and let it carry you. It's that powerful.
