“What is your story? Your real story, the story you fight to hide, the story that keeps you from freedom? The gospel frees these knots, opens truth where only silence resided. The grace of Jesus allows us to look honestly at our lives, not lock our stories into a place of shame. When I open wide my hands to the truth of my life and allow grace and forgiveness to seep into the pain of my story, I can lift my face, walk in grace and forgiveness, and not dwell on the bitter moments that hurt so desperately. It never discounts the pain. But the redemption of my hard yesterday’s gives me a softened heart to walk in my tomorrows.”  – Kara Tippetts, The Hardest Peace.
