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.

    Sweet Beth, Saturday was a wonderful gift to me. Better than a garage sale ’cause I got rid of lots of junk. What a blessing you are to the body of Christ. I loved this creative writing and am thrilled that you posted it. I want to read and reread it. I’d LOVE to see a video of the portion of the session where you dealt with the Old Fleshly Man. Hilarious. Thanks for a wonderful day.

    Our Ladies from our church went to a simulcast of your message Saturday!! Was just as moving as if we would have seen it in person. As a person who never felt worthy it blessed my soul to know that it’s time to see ourselves as NO LONGER THE SAME!!!!you are a blessing to many! May our God Bless you abundantly!

    Thanks Beth for the beautiful simulcast that brought me to tears. Listening to your words strengthened me. Sadly, my marriage of 32 years is ending soon as tomorrow I venture to court against my husband. He walked away from the Lord seven years ago and spiraled into adultery. I have 5 children and take care of my invalid parents fulltime. Two of my kids and my parents are under my roof. I couldn’t keep walking but for the grace and mercy of my Savior.

    Beth: Thank you, thank you, thank you. The simulcast on Saturday was wonderful and I felt the presence of the Lord in your teaching. I so appreciate that you are an obedient servant – God uses you in such a dynamic way. I tell myself over and over – NO LONGER. Thank God for His Grace. Again, thank you for such obedience to Him. Until next time . . . Donita

    I loved Saturday. It helped me realize I have a few “laws of me” I need to get rid of. Is the a way to get the quiz, so I can pray for those laws I’ve made for myself?

    Beth, what a great sermon you had Saturday. I loved it all. I still struggle with letting go of the past. I keep going back and getting hurt again. We are both in the use-to mode. How does one move on? He stays for money but I want him to stay for love. He mentally abuses me and of course I jump right in also. How do we get over this and still keep our sanity.

    I think that other than Scripture, this is one of the most beautiful, most profound things I have ever read. I’m so humbled by your words, your ability to communicate God’s character in ways we can understand and practically apply. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    I have not read all comments but I think it is “mute talking” vs “taking” that is what mrs Beth said on Saturday even though screen said taking.

    Beautifully said. Thank you for sharing.

    WOW! What a great reminder of God’s grace. I will be printing this one off and sharing it. I also wish I could hit a like button on all the post you have. I love this blog and I love you Beth. Keep up the good work!

    Anna M says:

    Greatly encouraged by the words of truth spoken during the simulcast! God allowed me to see through all the lies that I’ve been believing and all the things that held me captive from living a life of true freedom in Christ. My eyes were opened to see how much under the law I’ve been living.My old self of condemnation, constant comparison to others, low self-esteem are gone. My new identity of redemption, love, self acceptance and grace are here! Thank you, Jesus!

    Does anyone know where I can get a list of the 12 law/grace quiz questions we took during the simulcast? Some of my friends who were not able to attend have asked about the quiz but I was unable to locate it online.

    Bev Pate says:

    Thank you so much for coming to Charleston Saturday. I feel very blessed to have been able to be there to hear your lesson on grace and law. What a great lesson and reminder that we are only under grace. God is good.

    Teresa says:

    I love everything you have been sharing with us about, “grace”. I especially liked your Law and Grace set-up at the simulcast. This coming Wednesday night my Bible study group will recap what we learned from Saturday’s simulcast. I will read them the blog posted above that’s titled, Grace. Thank you for sharing!!
    Many thanks and blessings,

    God amazes me in so many ways. There are some days I don’t read this blog because I am too busy and have a million things on my mind. But the days I do stop and take the time to its like a personal message to me. Today’s post especially speaks to me. I had a rough day which I know is going to carry on to the next day and just when I thought I’ve been beaten down God finds a way to let me know he is with me. Thank you for being the sender of His Message!

    Beth, as I read this tonight before falling asleep and it immediately struck me as THE BEST ONE. That name was passed down for ages and is our daughters’ middle name. Thank you for continuing to let God use you.

    Thanks for posting the poem,

    Over the years I have been to live simulcasts, church simulcasts and this year solo simulcast. So glad you offered it since the other two options weren’t attainable for me this year. Loved the message and it continued into my Sunday service! (God is Good!)
    Loved the true false test. I jotted down what each question was. A girlfriend and I compared our answers together. While we each had the same number of “T’s” they were each opposite! Blew our minds!

    Thanks for following your calling, such a blessing for so many.

Beautiful, precious, life changing power of the Cross where Grace and Glory meet! Jesus is so GOD, such LOVE, giving all for us! Amazing Grace, Amazing Love, o what sacrifice that He would die for me!

    “Grace sets a table before me in the presence of my enemy, even when my enemy is me.” WOW. I keep reading this over and over and over.

    Thank you so much for posting this! I’m pretty sure Saturday’s message was meant directly for me. The quiz was incredibly eye opening and I was so blessed by the message. Praying that God will how me and remind me daily to live under Grace not the Law as is my tendency.

    Thank you Beth for a fantastic and much needed message!
