Surf’s Up… The Abounding Grace Wave

1 Jun

As you are likely experiencing, our understanding of: abounding grace… our Father’s love for us… and our own identity, has shifted immensely over the last few years… and continues to shift.  Everything is moving so fast that it’s like we’re surfing a mega-wave and feeling the raw power of these transformational revelations… and we’re watching in exhilarating wonder as the theological scenery radically changes around us.  

Ever tried to surf without a wave?  It ain’t gonna happen.  Paddling hard without a wave just wears you out.  But grace empowers.  In the timeliness of God, He not only creates an abounding grace wave, but helps us meet the wave and rides it with us… and for us.  We’re in one of those timings of God now!

This pic below, impacted me how we’re on an epic ride of our lives.  We have our floaties and goggles on and our mouth is agape in total exhilaration.  Master Surfer Daddy has created an astounding wave of abounding grace.  He helped us find the wave and He’s riding it with us (guess who’s in control)… and He’s got us totally covered.  Wow!

Hang on for the ride of our lives.  As the Mario Bros. video game says…

Riding The Abounding Grace Wave“Here We Go!!!”

    “Ever tried to surf without a wave? It ain’t gonna happen. Paddling hard without a wave just wears you out. But grace empowers.” Love the analogy, Mark. The picture says it all too. Riding this grace wave puts a whole new meaning to “Surf’s up!” 🙂

      Indeed! I may not know how to surf an ocean wave, but we’re having a ton of fun learning how to ride the grace wave.

    Truly joyous look on the face of that child. It’s obvious he or she feels absolutely safe and is having a blast!

      We’re finding that perfect love truly is eradicating fear. Wow, that sets us up for life and life more abundantly. Thank you, Papa!
