Five Minute Friday: Grace

I recently saw a book titled Grace: The Power to Change and it immediately got me thinking. How do we change? Do we change through sheer will power? That seems like it might work for some people, but most people lack the amount of will power necessary to change life-sized problems on their own. Most people need something else to help. Grace is what gives us a second chance when screw up, what lets us try again when we do what we swore up and down we wouldn’t do.  Grace is what doesn’t throw us into the garbage bin when we behave in a less than perfect manner. Grace is what gives us the freedom to fail and try again.  Only then can we change, when we know that failure is not the end, but that we must “rise and rise again” until we are no longer the person we once were. Grace is what makes change possible.

  3. I wanted to do a five minute Friday, but I was just drawing a blank when I saw the word Grace. I didn’t want to be cliche. This was beautiful. The perfect closure. “Grace is what makes change possible.”
