One of 2 things happen when we decide to trust God:
- It can blow our private world view apart, shaking the foundations of the world we live in and the world that lives in us. Sometimes it shoves us down under the rubble at our private ground zero, searching for any signs of life there.
2. Faith can gather together all our loose ends.
Funny how Faith is like Crazy Glue.
It holds everything together.
I know it seems like the coming of God into our lives would be a peaceful, easy thing.
But consider what Faith has blown apart in our lives.
For me, it was the old world I’d been living in. It was the world that was not working in my present life.
My adolescent Faith with an adolescent God was not working anymore.
Faith blew it apart and made a space for Grace.
Grace in the shape of an Accident.

How gorgeous Dawn. I have such deep admiration for you and your family. You have lifted me up countless times via your writings. Thank you for trying to make sense of this and sharing it with the world. Much love! Kathy
Kathy, we two are a small sorority of mutual admiration! I’m in Chicago at a tiring conference and you’ve lifted me just now!
