The Knowing Calm of Grace


It’s amazing how good we are when we’re “on.” We flow with an energy and ease, reminiscent of two old dancers. Two hearts in sync – without question – without retort. Simple gestures. Small moments.

A helping hand. A guiding force.

So simplistic. Ever so fleeting.

Muddied by history and torment.

Smothered by a sea of emotions.

Left behind traces. His past and mine.

Or is it ours intertwined?

A rhythm interrupted by outside forces. Little manipulations, contrived in response to a servants heart. Leeching energies, coming and going – year after year. Leaving us desperate for air – left winded by the takers of this world. Those who leave chasms of distrust and discontent in their wake. A massive moat of malice and misunderstanding.

When we’re “on,” we are void of opposing energies – theirs and ours. Instead, focused on the here and now; the precious space that is time. Willingly embracing the knowing calm of GRACE!

“But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.” Ephesians 4:7
