I do not at all understand the mystery of Grace- only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.’ Anne Lamott
This quote perfectly captures what my experience of Grace has always been. It is that invisible ‘something’ that picks us up out of a place of darkness, and silently and seamlessly puts us down gently in a space filled with light.
I have often wondered how ‘Grace’ happens… Is it based on need? Can it happen only when the conditions are right? Do we earn it, or is it a simple and spontaneous ‘no strings attached’ gift from spirit?
I may never fully understand the mechanism of Grace, but I have learned that I do not need to understand it to experience it- understanding that it is out there swirling about in the universe, and can arrive at any moment is enough.
