"There's Only Grace"

"There is no guilt here
There is no shame
No pointing fingers
There is no blame
What happened yesterday
Has disappeared
The dirt has washed away
And now it's clear

There's only grace
There's only love
There's only mercy
And believe me it's enough
Your sins are gone
Without a trace
There's nothing left now
There's only grace

You're starting over now
Under the sun
You're stepping forward now
A new life has begun
Your new life has begun"

 Those are lyrics to a great song by Matthew West.  After finding yourself at the lowest of the low (we've all been there)  "There's only grace" . 

 Two definitions of the  word "grace" are:

          a : unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification

b : a virtue coming from God

How wonderful that at a time in our lives when we find ourselves in a seemingly hopeless situation (a crisis pregnancy) we are never too far from God's grace. How amazing it is that He allows us to go through trials to experience this unmerited grace, and to come through stronger on the other side of our struggle. We have all have opportunities in our lives to start over, the question is do we take them or continue along the path of destruction? These women we counsel have another chance to not only begin their "new" life, but also the opportunity to give their babies a chance at life as well. This is always our prayer. Please let it become yours.
