What is grace?

Grace is the most incredible gift we could hope to revive. It’s God loving us even when we are so unlovely and dirty. It’s the undeserving favour and love of a Heavenly Father who sent His son to die for you and for me. Grace will transform your life, as you realise that somebody as perfect and pure as Jesus came to die in our place and for our mess even when our hearts were in total rebellion. Grace empowers you to move forward in righteousness, joy, peace and strength as you receive such undeserved love and forgiveness lavished upon you. Everyday I discover more of the life changing depths of grace. ❤️

NEW VIDEO: “Bow Down & Pray To Me - okay the thumbnail & title will make sense if you watch it… so… watch it. Reblog if you want me to stalk your blog! :]

You don’t have to be in a church to experience the Holy Spirit.
He can flood our souls like an all-consuming Fire in the midst of a joyful congregation,
but He is also in the quietest rooms where tears rest on pillowcases
and with His all-powerful yet delicate voice, He whispers comfort to every beat of the heart.
The very first words [of the Lord’s Prayer] are Our Father. Do you now see what those words mean? They mean quite frankly, that you are putting yourself in the place of a son of God. To put it bluntly, you are dressing up as Christ. If you like, you are pretending. Because, of course, the moment you realize what the words mean, you realize that you are not a son of God. You are not being like The Son of God, whose will and interests are at one with those of the Father: you are a bundle of self-centered fears, hopes, greeds, jealousies, and self-conceit, all doomed to death. So that, in a way, this dressing up as Christ is a piece of outrageous cheek. But the odd thing is that He has ordered us to do it.
—  C.S. Lewis, in Mere Christianity

I just been up here for god damn years,
Can you see now?
Filling up hulls with god damn fears,
I am free now.
I know about it darlin’,
I’ve been standin’ here,
Heavenly father.
Is all that he offers,
A safety in the end?
