05. Everything Is Grace

Saints and Sinners
by Matt Maher



 

Your joy, when the morning comes

Your hope, keeps me looking up

You are enough

Your peace, the eye of every storm

Your strength, when my heart is worn

You are enough



Whatever comes my way

I will walk through the flames

Youíre turning my fear to faith

My doubt to praise

And everything is grace



Your love, when the wait is long

Your voice, keeps me holding on

You are enough

My delight, when bitterness comes close

My portion, the only thing I know

You are enough



Whatever comes my way

I will walk through the flames

Youíre turning my fear to faith

My doubt to praise

And everything is grace

True in the pouring rain

True in the crashing waves

Itís true even in my pain, my heart can say

That everything is grace

Time after time, Your redemption is mine

Again and again, Your grace is everything



Youíre turning my fear to faith

My doubt to praise

And everything is grace

True in the pouring rain

True in the crashing waves

Heís true even in my pain, my heart can say

That everything is grace

Woah, my heart can say

That everything is grace

Behind the Song:
One of my favorite saints was St. Therese of Lisieux, 'The Little Flower.' She was born in France and entered the convent at a very young age and died of tuberculosis in her early 20s. Years after her death, they found her diary. In Catholicism, she's considered a spiritual giant; a heavyweight. She had a spiritual practice called 'The Little Way,' and everything she did, she did it with the utmost level of intentionality, whether it was sweeping floors or washing dishes or making beds or cleaning bed pans. She offered a great quote that said, 'Everything is grace. Everything is a direct result of the Father's love for us. So no matter the difficulties you face, however trivial or serious, they're basically all an opportunity.' You reach a point in your journey where all of a sudden things start going wrong in life and it's OK. Everything is grace. Everything is an opportunity. Eleven years ago, I wrote ' Your Grace Is Enough,' and 11 years later, it's still the case. - Matt Maher
