Thoughts - July 9, 2016

"Grace is the most real thing there is. Grace cannot be explained, but it can be experienced, and it can be experienced in the moment of releasing yourself from the effort of understanding it. Grace is the activity of God that takes place without any human intervention. God's grace is as free as your soul if you let your soul be free." - Joel Goldsmith
As most of you know, I have a strong belief in the Spirit. There have been many who scoff at such medieval thought and many others who feel the theology isn't specific enough. What I have experienced (over and over again) in my life is Grace. One minute I am strolling along the walk of life - living, working, worrying, playing, enjoying, sinning, doing good works,,,whatever. And then I am zapped. I-Thou. Me-Spirit. Hello, you are loved. It has nothing to do with me, except that I recognize it. I say thank you. I continue strolling on that path of life, now buoyed up with love and purpose and hope and patience and joy and peace of mind. That's Grace. That's real. - Beth Almond Ford
