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

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

Lent: a beautiful season for embracing our desire to love.

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


When you love, you walk on the water.  Just don’t stumble on the waves.  We all want to go there some something awful, but to stand there it takes some grace.”
