grace, grace, grace…. and Ruby Falls!

Here’s a bit of spiritual wisdom on this Lenten Tuesday as we tackle the tough stuff in front of us, our piles, ‘to do lists’ (and maybe things we keep putting off?)

“God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always, having all sufficiency in all things, may abound unto every good work.” (2 Corinthians 9:8)

My Papa broke it down like this:

“God is able to make all grace (not just a little bit of grace), abound (not just trickle), toward you (not just Billy Graham, your pastor, missionaries, but toward you), that you (Paul repeats you for emphasis), always (not just sometimes), having all sufficiency (not just some sufficiency), in all things (not just some things), may abound (not just limp along), unto every good work (not just some good works.)”   Dick Woodward

All grace, abounding, all the time – even when we’re stuck in the muck, it’s there like a waterfall powered by God’s love.

My brother & I recently visited Ruby Falls in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It’s a magnificent waterfall on Lookout Mountain, not on top (as waterfalls tend to be located) but deep underneath the mountain. It sparkles when lights are turned on, yet keeps tinkling and flowing when the lights go out.

Like God’s grace that’s there for us in good times and bad, in times of electrifying light and petrifying darkness. It’s the real deal: enough grace for each day, hour, minute to make it through to the next day, hour, minute.

May God’s grace abound in our lives, like this waterfall, in darkness & light.

grace, peace & waterfall groupies
