“And only under grace can true transformation and healing take place.” Yes!
I’ve thinking of a personal story of this in my life. Not time to share full story here, but bottom line — several years ago a man I’d just met at a church’s men’s group choose to show me love without waiting to see if it was “safe” to show me that love.
The result: I began to find healing from past abuse in my friendship with him, which led to friendship with others.
Today that man, Jason, is my best friend.
