Sitting On Top of Grace
The Lord often shows me visions of horses and riding on horses. They are all different and have different purposes. I can’t say that I like one more than the other because they are all so wonderful and beautiful. On this day I was graced by the presence of GRACE. The dapple grey.
I was on the bridge. Where the mountains are, and the spring water is melting and careening down the sides of the mountain to join with the river below. It was a lovely scene; overcast with white fog, and I could see the base of the mountains. The melting ice was fast and furious today, just like how I feel on the inside. I was really angry. I was angry at the religious spirit and the fact that I’ve had to face that spirit again.
It’s that nasty little spirit that likes to make you think you have to perform for love and acceptance. Something we humans eat up with a spoon.
As I’m on the bridge I begin to walk across it. Then a huge dapple grey horse appears in front of me.
It was the biggest horse I had ever seen. His back was just a little taller than my head. I went up to pet him and he was so strong. I could feel the strength coming off him. Jesus said his name was Grace.
Jesus was sitting up on him. As I was standing there Jesus pulls me up on him too. It’s hard to describe how Grace felt. He was so strong and capable and unmoving. Unmoving in the sense that nothing could shake him.
As I was up on him I looked down and all around me. It seemed that I was way up on a mountain. A deep ravine was below me and there were people below that looked like tiny grasshoppers.
From this vantage point, I could see that I was way above everything. Every kind of darkness and pain. Every kind of anger and hatred and bitterness. Nothing but love and acceptance was around me.
Then Jesus said to me .. “How does it feel to be sitting on top of Grace”?
I began to cry because I could see that we were above all the anger and hatred and guile of the world. This is who God is. This is what grace is.
Grace was strong enough to bear everything. All the dirt and every sin of this world. Grace could take it all.
Grace covers all of our sins.
This is a big battle for me from time to time. Because I don’t want to get into error. The way I was raised in a rather religious, judgmental environment and time. Our nation is divided with both sides judging. It is trickling down into our individual lives and relationships causing division, suspicion. The enemy wants to use religious judgmental attitudes to divide and conquer. I can just picture what you saw! Thank you for this comforting blog post, Marjorie!
Awww. That’s so nice Mindy. Thanks so much for sharing that with me.I’m so glad it lifted some junk off of you. The enemy is indeed crafty and wants to steal our joy!
