A few months ago I attended a conference where Jill Briscoe spoke. We were simply enraptured by the stories of this 84 year old Author/Poet/Speaker/Pastor’s Wife. (What an honor to hear her speak. I decided almost immediately that she is a kindred spirit.) One of the things she shared was this:

Fast forward to last Sunday when we were having communion at Church. That phrase came to mind as I was struck with the thought that the weight of my sin and the depth of His grace had somehow become commonplace in my heart. Dare I admit this–? I sort of felt nothing. How many times had I drank of the cup and ate the bread in a mechanical way?
When we are coasting by our own strength and merely existing in the day to day distractions of life without the gospel in the forefront of our hearts, we are drifting further and further away from the awareness His grace.
