grace some more

Grace comes to us in two dimensions, vertical and horizontal. Vertical grace centers on our relationship with God. It is amazing. It frees us from the demands and condemnation of the Mosaic Law. It announces hope to the sinner-the gift of eternal life, along with all its benefits. Horizontal grace centers on our human relationships. It is cahrming. It frees us from the tyranny of pleasing people and adjusting our lives to the demands and expectiations of human opinion. It gives relief-the enjoyment of freedom along with all its benefits. It silences needless guilt and rmoves self-imposed shame. Charles Swindoll Grace Awakening in love. trish.

It seems to me that we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger for them.

Hope is like a path in the courtryside: orignally there was no path-yet, as people are walking continuously over the same spot, a way appears.
