Grace Flow

But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God. Acts 20:24 NLT

This song is an expression of my desire for God to use me, and flow out through me to the world. The idea of Grace - that we are forgiven no matter what we've done, and through nothing that we’ve done to deserve forgiveness - is so compelling, and it's really what separates Jesus from any other religious figure. He offers us grace - undeserved, unearned. I couldn't help but start the song praising Him, and asking for more of Him. And realizing that I have to let go of my idea of how He should use me, I pray Open my eyes, open my hands. I need to fill up on You. Then, send me.

All that I need I find in You, All that is broken, You make new

You breathe your life into me, You complete me

When I look around at the needs of the world, I get easily and quickly overwhelmed. Where to start? God is also helping me to see things I would have never noticed before, and it’s even harder. I have no choice but to bring Him my brokenness and let His grace wash over it, and flow out through the cracks. Continually being filled with His grace and His life, I have something to offer - Jesus.
