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.

    Thank you for these words Beth – there were balm to my soul. Watched your simulcast from my computer, and couldn’t have been more blessed. A thousand thanks. 🙂 (Since your Bible study “Breaking Free”, you have been such an instrumental teacher to me in my faith, I can not thank you enough). 🙂

    AMEN and AMEN! I participated in the simulcast on Saturday via Calhoun, GA! It was incredible! I was blessed to be able to share that day with my sweet mother, and it was truly a blessing to both us us! GOD’S GRACE IS SO AMAZING – IT IS BREATH-TAKING!

    Thank you!

    Thank-you, thank-you Beth! I was so inspired by the simulcast and the message of grace. I just wanted to stay when it was over and not have to go back out to the real world, knowing I will mess up again. And then I thought “Here I am defeating the message before I’ve even left!” 🙂

    Thanks for posting these writings. They are life giving and encouraging. Thanks to all the hard work of everyone in and behind the scenes of this event! I was so happy that one of our local churches hosted.

    Thank you so much for making this creative writing on Grace available for us! I confess I easily slip into a “lazy law lover” rather than living abundantly as a “gleeful grace grabber” so Saturday’s simulcast was a great reminder to “NO LONGER” gravitate to law/shame but live in the glory of grace/name!

    This spoke volumes to me…annointed…

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

    Oh how my weary soul needed these words this morning…

    Beth – thanks so much for posting this!! I was debriefing the simulcast with my sister on Sunday and mentioned this wonderful poem and how it’s changing my understanding of Grace…so much bigger than I presently conceive it to be. I’m so excited to share this with her. I’m still meditating and processing everything I heard. Saturday’s message was so timely for me and the Lord gave me a much needed word about a root entanglement. I’m now seeing it as the old dead self and picturing you with the “dead man” with funny hands and a ring. :). Thank you for your example of surrender. Your heart and love for The Lord is contagious.

    So 1 year ago a scripture was burned into my soul.
    Genesis 28:16 has changed me, Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place and I was not aware of it.” I’m in 6 Bible Studies and facilitate 5. It’s because I am a desperate woman.

    For a year now we have begun every study with the question, “Where is one time this past week of the thousands of possibilities that we became aware of God: mad, sad, glad, scared, felt Him, smelt Him, heard Him, saw Him-that we can share with the group.

    The task is to study His Word and also wake up and know surely God is in this place and I was not aware of it….O Merciful Father, Son and Holy Spirit please help me be aware of You and help me help others be aware of You too.

    Grace is: God is in this place. Wherever, however, whyever, forever. You are in this place,Lord, and extra Grace is: O God, right now, today, thank You, God, I’m aware of it. Now Lord, plese help me see You for the next minute too.

    I pray that these bondage breaking proclamations about our AMAZING GRACE set us free from a lifestyle of rules, regulations, and religion. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty!

    Vickie says:

    Um…..WOW!!! I started reading this slowly because from you, I knew it was going to be amazing. I didn’t realize I was holding my breath until the end when I found myself light headed and seeing spots. I’m just gonna chalk it up to the shikinah glory of God coming through His words and finding me breathless from His glory in you.

    Your Jesus is showing…Praise the Lord! Thanks for loving on us with powerful words from Him.

    Stay Blessed!

    I was at the simulcast on Saturday and was so hoping you would post this!!! Thank you! Now I just need the “conversation” I had with my Savior posted! I LOVED all the verses in red (spoken to me by Him) along with all the verses for me to respond back. That was so MOVING and healing to my soul! Please, please, post those!!

    Earl Vordenberg says:

    being a supporter of the gospel of grace, which has gotten me some criticism, I can say,once you realize how saved you are and begin to experience the freedom of Gods grace,theres nothing like it.

    Jami Harrington says:

    I SO thank you for sharing this piece! After hearing it at the simulcast, I was hoping you would post it. I am going to print it out and hang it on my bathroom mirror to remind me all that grace is. It is so easy to inch away from God’s amazing grace, so a constant reminder is so helpful. Thank you!
