My desire is to grapple together here over how well off we are with God through Christ,
and to live from His opinion of us.

Life & Grace In Us
This was my prayer this morning, as Sarah and I woke and began to feel the weight and coming crush of responsibilities. This was no “silver bullet” prayer (“Everything will now be perfect!”), since, short of instant healing, Sarah will go through the day with a sore throat while living by faith in Jesus. This was a prayer of belief and renewal: I said what we knew to be true about Jesus and us, and our minds were cleared, our spirit’s encouraged as a result of the Spirit’s work of grace in us.
Living by faith in Jesus is how life works out. Life is within—what happens outside of that is what goes on elsewhere.
