Rich Mullins: We Are Not as Strong as We Think We Are

“It only took one little lie to separate you and me. Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are…”

Rich_Mullins_black_and_white_short_hairOne little lie.  One futile attempt to solve a problem with a sin, to create a false reality with deceitful words.

Rich Mullins reminds us of love’s fragility. “When you love, you walk on the water,” he warns.  “Just don’t stumble on the waves.  We all want to go there some something awful, but to stand there it takes some grace.”

Time to ponder how we’ve failed already and remember our weakness in humility.  And pray for grace.
