Often, it is when we are most rejected, ashamed, and tear-stained in our lives that Christ's abundant grace shines brightest. This is the kind of intimacy that we want to last forever.
In this much-anticipated sequel to her million-selling One Thousand Gifts, Ann Voskamp offers a fresh presentation of the gospel for desperate Christians in need of a renewed revelation of the grace of God.
Discover what it means to give all of your brokenness to the one who has been broken for you.
How can it be? When we're naked and ashamed and alone in our brokenness, Christ envelopes us with his intimate grace. When we're rejected and abandoned and shattered beyond wanting, Jesus cups our face, "Come close, my Beloved." When we're dirty and tear-stained and despairing, Jesus Christ proposes undying, dying love: "All that you painfully are and are carrying-I'll take. All that I perfectly am and have-is yours. Just take me."
There is a wooing that washes our wounds. Falling into this intimacy with him is the one thing we pray to never recover from. This kind of intimacy can only be tasted and swallowed, and it burns a holy yes through our begging veins.
Am I willing to take all that I have, break and give to Him?
Because all that He is, He broke and gave to us.
