Grace—the Power of God

Grace is the word we give to the power of God that we recognize in our lives. We long to make this power so real that we can hold it in our hands, or feel it like heat running through our bodies. We want to know that this divine substance is real and that it protects us and heals us and flows down from heaven when we request it. Caroline Myss Entering the Castle Page 17
 I have a desire to reconnect with the divine, the Sacred One. I long to be part of this great sacred outpouring—that sacred filling of my soul’s well and its overflowing into the world and back again into the Sacred Presence.
The Sacred Power pours itself out continuously like a great waterfall onto the wheels of life, which turn and run the creative generator allowing the Sacred One to work its wonders in our lives and the lives of others.
This power we call grace; this power is available to us all at all times. However, as we go through our daily lives we may find ourselves getting into a rut that brings us into the doldrums, a state of spiritual stagnation, where we become sluggish and lacking energy.

At such times, we need to reconnect with the power of God; we need to rededicate ourselves to a life of prayer whereby our soul’s wheel of life will again be turned by the flow of the river of life. That flow is always available to us but sometimes we need to be reminded to stand in its Sacred Power and drink from the Spiritual waters of Grace.
Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.
