I had grace all wrong...
In my often confused, finite brain I had been looking at grace all wrong.
Grace in my mind had been the thing that rescues me when I don't get it right. The thing I hadn't really thought of, was that I never get things right.
God's grace gives us the ability to do what's right. Without it, doing right is impossible. "All our righteousness is as filthy rags."
Without Him there is nothing.

In Him, there is Life and Peace.
i hadn't thought of it in quite those terms, and i need/love reminders of grace no matter the terms.
Thanks Benjamin. I like 1 Peter 1:2.
Which reads in part:
May grace and peace be yours in the fullest measure.(NASB)
yours in abundance. (NIV)
I want to know His grace in fullest measure.
