A Spiritual Heart Transplant

A Spiritual Heart Transplant

Grace!  The bank gives us a grace period.  The seedy politician falls from grace. Musicians speak of a grace note.  We use the word for hospitals, baby girls, kings and pre-meal prayers.  We talk as though we know what grace means.

You turn the page of your Bible and look at the words.  You might as well be gazing at a cemetery.  Lifeless, stony.  Nothing moves you.  But you don’t dare close the book, no sirree.  You dare not miss a deed for fear that God will erase your name.

God’s grace has a drenching about it.  Grace comes after you.  It rewires you.  From insecure to God secure.  From regret riddled to better-because-of-it.  From afraid to die, to ready to fly.

As Paul said in Galatians 2:20:  “It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.”

You might call it a spiritual heart transplant!

About the author

Lynne Conley

Our words can be a motivator, whether we realize it or not, whether you mean to or not. Our words can bring life. My life consists of working full-time at a pharmaceutical company and teaching Sunday school (Kindergarten class). My desire is to encourage others. My writings aren't fancy words, but they are from the Lord. So many people are hurting, and I want to help all I can while I am still alive. My passion is for elderly people and those who are shut-ins.
