Grace like a river

It’s been a long long break from blogging. Here’s a post on grace to break the silence.

I sometimes make use of the book “Valley of Vision” – a fantastic collection of Puritan prayers. They are like a starter motor that gets me praying. From p.270 ‘The Prayer of Love’ comes this line:

“Grace cataracts from heaven and flows for ever, and mercy never wearies of bestowing benefits.”

Which got me thinking of the imagery.  Grace like a river…

  • washes away sin from my life
  • erodes my rock-hard stubborness
  • brings life to the desert
  • glistens in the light of the Son
  • brings oxygen to the stagnant waters of my soul.

Any other ideas?
