Stand In the Wide Open Spaces of God's Grace and Glory

We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that He has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand, out in the wide open spaces of God's grace and glory. Romans 5:2

This is one of my favorite verses. I love the idea that when we open ourselves to God we discover his door is already THROWN WIDE OPEN! Not cracked...WIDE OPEN.

Sometimes I get lost in mental darkness or confusion or hung up on trying to understand. I forget all I have to do is just open the door. I don't have to have the answers, I don't have to get it together, I don't have to prove I'm worthy. Just open the door and walk out into wide open spaces of grace and glory where Love is already waiting.
