To Have Grace. What does that really mean?
Grace is defined as to have ‘simple elegance or refinement of movement’ elegance, finesse, charm. When I think of myself, Grace isn’t the first thing to come to mind. Sometimes I am clumsy, and feel left footed, I have found lately that I bang, bruise and hit bones and body parts that certainly make me feel like the line in Tommy Boy, “That’s gonna leave a mark.”
But the more I dive in I realize that having grace is something from the inside out. There is the grace that is the human form of gracefulness I first thought of, but I wanted to go deeper still.
There is the grace of the holy spirit that is a spiritual covering, a wash, that is available for us all. I feel that I have that part within me. When I let it shine through when I am doing what I was made for I have grace. The grace that embodies movement and completeness. When I have grace I claim my birthright as a son of the King and I claim my right in heaven and in the ages and for eternity.
When I have grace I have it inward and outward. Grace Has Me. Then I found this song and realized it summed up what I was trying to say in words already in a song. Enjoy and let Grace Get You!
