JUST THE BEGINNING

JUST THE BEGINNING
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

 We never really know what Christ has up His holy sleeve;
He’s full of sovereign surprise and extravagant grace.
He works in contrast and to the contrary;
He works in spite of and out of the ordinary …
All the time.
----
When we think we have it most together,
Perhaps we have it least together,
And not a lot happens.
When we think we have it least together,
Perhaps we have it most together,
And so very much happens.
Because it’s God in us
and never really about us ... at all.
The whole thing is a marvelous mystery;
This uncontrollable,
Uncontainable,
Unstoppable God.
----
Maybe when we get to the end of ourselves,
We begin to discover the beginning of God.

And the end is just the beginning …
And the beautiful mystery called grace begins to unfold.
