Grateful.

Dad went to the hospital last night after falling off a ladder at work. All we heard from the employees was that he was in the hospital… so there was a minor panic. But he’s ok, aside from some broken bones and such.

It got me to thinking about grace. God blesses us so much; He showed his grace in that my dad didn’t have any internal organs punctured by His fall. It could easily have been a lot worse. But God spared our family… it’s an inconvenience for sure, but it was a burden that we could bear.

“he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” – 1 Corinthians 10:13

Tempted to despair. Tempted to curse God. No. God is good… and we are just grateful. Grace is such a nebulous concept. I don’t think any of us will truly grasp the true power of God’s grace… it’s undeserved, is bestowed upon a chosen few, and heals hurts. It’s a result of unconditional agape Love. I still can’t understand it, but it’s amazing.
