Five minutes of Grace:

Grace. I think instantly of the quote I found " Grace is the biggest kind of Brave." Jessica Leigh Hoover

Why is Grace brave?

I don't know what kind of grace Jessica Hoover meant, but God's grace is brave.

Grace is for the undeserving, the ones who let down, who mess up, who need mercy, who cling to pride. Grace is given for no price to those who receive. Gift. Grace is gift.

Gifts are brave. The best gifts are, anyway. A brave gift--not what the person had on their birthday or Christmas list, not something they knew they wanted, but something the Giver knows they need.

We need Grace. Most of us didn't know we wanted it. Had we been asked before, we might have declined, hoping instead for a nice book or a new computer. But oh, once it is had, once we have tasted of Grace? there is no turning back from its delights.

True Grace experienced is Grace unequaled.
