"…for earthen vessels that shuffle along on feet of clay."
BRENNAN MANNING, The Ragamuffin Gospel, in noting who this book on GRACE was written for
Yes, Lord, we shuffle along. Grace us with feet to go where you call. We are your clay.
See to it that NO ONE misses the GRACE of GOD…
Hebrews 12:15, NIV
This little girl won't, Lord.
26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him.
1 Corinthians 1:26-29
God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Glory to God in the church! Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus! Glory down all the generations! Glory through all millennia! Oh, yes!
Ephesians 3:19-21, The Message
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21, NIV
Lord God, only you can turn the ordinary into extraordinary! We praise you that your Able exceeds us! To you be the glory!
These little feet may not work…net yet. They may never shuffle across the hardwood floors in our home, but be sure…one day they will! Praise the maker of clay feet that can dance! To him who is able!
Today was a good day.
