We are now three days removed from the abortion, and only one post removed from my last (“CONFESSION: I Am Struggling”). I have been praying a lot about this now-tense relationship between the dad and all those connected to this event… and my heart is broken for Dad.
Stepping back from the feelings I had only days ago — being enlightened to the power and beauty of grace, and the freedom in Christ to demonstrate love and grace no matter the circumstances — I am realizing that grace is really not mine to give or keep (thanks to a great man of God for that insight).
We must let the love of Christ rule and reign is all situations… and the same grace that was shown to me, while I was still an enemy of God, must radiate from my life.
Let it flow…
