Grace Is a Living Stream


Grace isn’t a cistern.

It’s a living stream.

If it doesn’t keep moving–

into us and through us into others–

it stagnates.

It was never meant

to be hoarded.

  9. This post is a beautiful reminder that grace must be received and also how it is so very important that we must not forget that we receive it in order then to share it! Thank you so much for such a graceful reminder that you have shared with us!
