I discovered grace. It was in a place that I least expected it. In fact, I wasn't even intentionally looking for it. When I noticed it, a a brief gasp left my mouth. I went back to look again. Yes, there it was.
Grace... in a prison cell.
Not just any prison cell. I found grace in the prison cell of an innocent man.
Genesis 39:20b-21a (NIV) "...But while Joseph was there in the prison, the LORD was with him; he showed him kindness and granted him favor..."
Synonyms: Favor. Chen. Grace.
It got me to thinking. Thinking about things that bind. The potential prison's of a heart. A soul held captive, maybe even against their will or falsely accused.
Perhaps hopeless. Discouraged. Overwhelmed. Distraught. Uncertain. Lonely.
I was encouraged when I took the time to look again.
Even in the darkest, loneliest, and most unfair of situations... grace can be found.
Even in my darkest, loneliest, and most unfair of situations... grace can be found.
Grace is found.
Favor. Grace. Even in a prison cell.
