In an effort to avoid making everyone's day miserable, I headed to my office to spend some focused time talking with God about it.
I had been asking some questions about grace. It is not possible to understand the vastness of the grace of God without being laid low by the reality of sin; sin in my life, sin in the life of others around me and the interaction of sin on each other. Once again God was not rescuing me from the ugliness of something I really did need to see, to be touched by and even feel hopeless in...
One morning over a year ago, I woke up hard pressed on every side. Not a great way to start the day. I could not shake the thoughts and feelings that were pressing in. I had recently given a great deal of thought and prayer time to the topic of sin. This is not a pleasant topic to contemplate. I was more than a little irritated that I could not simply decide I was done thinking about it and turn my mind off to it. But no matter how hard I tried, I could not.
