I’m sitting in a neighborhood coffee shop (as I do most Tuesday/Thursdays) thinking, contemplating, and wrestling with this word...

I’m face to face with my...

...lack of

and my 

...need for.

And, ALL OF THE ABOVE definitions seem to apply in my life currently.  

Do I trust others?

Do I trust myself?

Do I trust God?

Realizing my lack of... and my need for... makes grace that much sweeter today.
