Stumbling into GraceWednesday, March 27, 2013
The idea of Grace is a concept that, for many Christians, is hard to really explain to both non-believers, and new believers. Can you describe it? Do you feel like you have received God's grace?
To be honest the concept of Grace is still hard for me to describe to others, probably because I'm not always sure I am truly standing in the waterfall of God's grace - do you know what I mean?
Well when a friend of mine suggested I read Lisa Harper's Stumbling Into Grace: Confessions of a Sometimes Spiritually Clumsy Woman, I figured it would be perfect for me.
And it was a great book, as it was a quick read that was full of inspiration from Harper.
Harper is a gift speaker, as she has a natural ability to make an audiance laugh and then minutes later bring such Truth of God that the audience is in tears. She has recently been part of the Women of Faith conference. If you are in need of some lighthearted insight from a sister in Christ, take a moment to listen to Harper.
This book is a great option if you are looking for a personal study, or a small group study. Harper shares a personal experience each chapter, and ties the wisdom gained from the experience to a scripture story. The idea that each experience we have, is a little bit of grace that God is giving us to absorb and learn from.
At the end of each chapter there were a couple of pages for personal reflection. A prayer is included, a list of questions, and then a starter for a journal entry - the perfect formula to work on sitting in God's presence and allowing Grace to flow over you.
