Grace in Tight Places
As my family and I traveled to attend my dad’s funeral, I dealt with an unpleasant reminder — grief can feel restrictive. Losses of any kind can minimize our blessings in the present and limit our view of the future. The echo of this feeling followed me through my experiences this week. But the voice of truth told me something different.
I sat in crowded rooms with fellow mourners, full airport shuttles with fellow travelers, and a narrow section of an airplane where I sat near another devastated soul. And yet, in the midst of being in tight places, I am encouraged by a liberating truth – God’s grace can enter into the tightest of life’s spaces.
