Grace is an inflated raft that can submerge to the floor of a sea to save you.

 Grace is the silver thread that stitches up the shreds of mangled souls.

 Grace is the eye that finds us where it refuses, there, to leave us.

 Grace calls the waitress to the table and sits her down to wash her feet.

 Grace sees underneath the manhole on a street of self-destruction.

 Grace is the air to draw a breath in the belly of a whale.

 Grace is the courage to stand in the shamed wake of a frightful falling.

 Grace is the only fire hot enough to burn down a living hell.

 Grace waits with healing in His wings when we’re too mad to pray.

 Grace is the gravity that pulls us from depravity.

 Grace races us to the Throne when we make haste to repent and always outruns us.

 Grace treats us like we already are what we fear we’ll never become.

 Grace is the doorpost dripping red when the angel of death grips the knob.

 Grace is the stamp that says Ransomed on a life that screams Ruined.

 Grace sets a table before me in the presence of my enemy even when my enemy is me.

 Grace is the cloak that covers the naked and the palm that drops the rock.

 Grace is divine power burgeoning in the absence of all strength.

 Grace proves God true and every self-made man a liar for the sake of his own soul.

 Grace is the power to do what we cannot do for the Name of Christ to go where it has not been.

Grace is a room of a thousand mirrors, all reflecting the face of Christ.

Grace is…

The eye popping

Knee dropping


Earth quaking

Pride breaking


Dark stabbing

Heart grabbing


Friend mending

Mind bending


Lame walking

Mute talking


Slave freeing

Devil fleeing


Death tolling

Stone rolling


Veil tearing

Glory flaring


Chin lifting

Sin sifting


Dirt bleaching

World reaching


Past covering

Spirit hovering


Child defending

Happy ending


Heaven glancing

Feet dancing…


Power of the Cross.



Jesus Christ, Grace Incarnate.

    The simulcast was especially special for me because 2 of my friends accepted Christ that day. Thank you, Beth, for the providing an opportunity!

    I also find it fascinating (and thought Beth would want to know if she doesn’t already), that her granddaughter’s name, Annabeth, means “favor; grace” (source: I just ran across this yesterday and was blown away. God is soooooo good!!!!!

    May you and your family be richly blessed!

    Just heard this today for the first time, as I watched the simulcast at church with a few precious “favored” sisters in Christ. Mind-blowing!! Thank you so much for sharing it. It’s okay to make copies, right? God bless you richly!

    I am speechless. Your descriptive wording of grace left me with a longing to rush back to the Word and gulp it down. It seems like I am constantly rushed and robbed of that quiet time at the feet of Jesus and I have been feeling so convicted and stressed over it. Grace. It sits quietly while I fret. And then reaches out and brushes back the tangled hair from my face and invited me to crawl up in His lap without a word of reprimand. Thank you for reminding me of that.

    Grace kept me afloat when people threw stones of condemnation and grace kept me smiling and comforted when religious people like pastors n missionaries thought they have it all and treated me like dirt. Grace allowed me to understand those who sings grace but have shown the opposite! Grace is Jesus saying ” I love you no matter what!

      This was truly inspired by Holy Spirit. How descriptive of this most precious gift. Beth was so blessed to have been the chosen vessel to bring it to us.

    This is the most beautifully complete definition of Grace that I have ever heard. I thank God for your continual diligence in keeping His mighty Word out there for us to hear, see and enjoy.
