But what I have come to see is that God is big enough to receive us with all our mixture. We do not have to be bright, or pure, or filled with faith, or anything. That is what grace means, and not only are we saved by grace, we live by it as well.

“But when we pray, genuinely pray, the real condition of our heart is revealed. This is as it should be. This is when God truly begins to work with us. The adventure is just beginning.”

This is an amazing book. I took it with me on a vacation when my soul felt completely dried out. I sat overlooking the ocean with tears streaming as my friend introduced the book in his foreword and described the impact it had on him. This book is an experience.
