“God’s response to the thirsty soul is grace. We would prefer time travel. Second chances. Do overs.
But God opts for sustaining grace. Grace that leverages the past for a better future. Grace that fills the gaps created by our sin or the sin of others. . . .
I don’t think it is intuitive to pray for grace and mercy in our time of need. We pray for the thing we need in our time of need. We pray for circumstances to change. We pray for memories to go away. We pray for people to treat us better. And so we should.
But none of that is promised. What’s promised is grace and mercy in our time of need.”
