all is grace

I read the line that all is grace in a book that was popular in my circles last winter, and it changed the way I see life. (I love those paradigm-shifting moments.)

All is grace.

This idea allows me to trust [deeply!] that God causes everything to work together for good. So, if my job burns me out and I decide to quit… that’s by grace. If I am at a job that I am not supposed to be at… that’s by grace. If I move into an apartment that is bombarded by traffic noise… that’s by grace. If a friendship flourishes or fails… grace.

God, in His grace, is the One who, by and through and because of grace, is shaping us into all that He desires for us. And He can and does use everything for His purposes. Nothing is NOT by grace. ALL is grace.
