Get caught Life is full of fumbles and stumbles. Fraught with opportunities to make mistakes, occasions to feel guilty, and the drive to do it yourself. The pressure to be self-sufficient is high, but it isn t the life God offers. The way of the world will direct you to try harder and work smarter so that you can take care of yourself and even make yourself successful. But the way of the cross will point toward the place where you stop striving...stop pushing...stop every self-initiated effort so that you can fall into the boundless, liberating, refreshing grace of God Just imagine being love-driven instead of self-propelled. Imagine abandoning your life to Jesus instead of trying to save yourself. Can you imagine exchanging your fears for that peace that passes understanding? Being relaxed and free instead of stressed-out and anxious? If you can imagine enjoying God instead of trying to repay him, then you can imagine grace. So go ahead Jump off the cliff of self-sufficiency. Leap out of legalism. Walk off the pier of guilt and condemnation. That s the only way you ll land in the strong arms of the Father who loves you...the Father who catches you every time in the grip of his grace."
