In reply to grace?, posted by spriggy on February 25, 2007, at 22:22:54
Well Spriggy, all, I understand.
I must have a hard time receiving it. Or, maybe it's here and I won't allow myself to succumb to it. That would be likely. If 'we think we are bad', the grace probably can't get through. I was raised Cath and fear the sin or be damned to purg or hell theology. I've always said 'I don't need to go to church to be in contact w/ a higher power' or 'the 12 steps are a way to your higher power'. But, what I do, is pray by myself. I ask for guidance, but have a hard time giving up the steering wheel for fear someone might hurt me. I wonder if our higher power ever thought life would be so difficult. I'm so afraid to let go and receive, because society demands us to 'play the game right' or be left alone.
