Humans of Grace: We’re all Human

wall-of-grace

Ladies, we’re all messy, aren’t we?  And we’ve all had our gloriously beautiful, “nothing-went-wrong!”, days…and our “why is everything going wrong?!” days.  We’ve had our moments of brilliance and our moments of utter stupidity.  We’ve loved people and we’ve judged people.  We’ve given and we’ve taken.  We’ve pressed on and given up.  Sometimes we never want to forget what just took place and other times, we want our memory wiped from what just happened!

We’re only human.  Right?

Well, as Christ-followers, we are STILL human.  But we are, THROUGH Christ, Humans of Grace.  We can beat ourselves up all we want, but God still extends His loving, grace-filled arms to us – even on our worst days.  Even when it is the hundredth time.  

Here’s what we wrote as an intro “prompt” to each of our writers for this month:

On Facebook?  On Instagram? There is a group called, Humans of New York on both social networking sites.  This group shares stories from all sorts of people with everything from funny and light stories to heartbreaking and thought-provoking ones.  The real and rawness of the posts inspired us at the AG blog to explore that kind of writing for this month.

Here’s where we might sound different from the Humans of New York posts:  We are humans of Grace.  We have the overwhelming grace of God and we have the love of Jesus in our lives.  We are not just called to share our stories, but to share our stories of hope and stories of grace.   And yes, Humans of Grace is a “play on words”.  Not only are we part of the Grace Chapel family, but we are part of God’s Grace-filled family.

This month, we hope to bring stories from our Grace Chapel ladies that make us laugh and think.  Maybe they stir an emotion inside of us that we didn’t know was there or maybe encourage us to think differently.  Most importantly, we hope that the stories are CLEAR accounts of God’s perfect grace in their lives.

AND…

In light of everything going on in the United States and in the world right now,

we must continue to live out the call of grace and love to those around us.


For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.

2 Timothy 1:9 (NLT)
