I went to a failing school, and by the grace of God, my mother was able to put me into private school, and had she not, I would probably be in a gang or dead right now, because that was the road I was going down.
Some days we may be more acutely conscious of our sinfulness and hence more aware of our need of His grace, but there is never a day when we can standbefore Him on our own two feet of performance, when we are worthy enough to deserve His blessing.
My father would have been impressed by BarackObama‘s mind and style and grace of manner, as well as by – I’m certain – his abilities as a writer.
I give as much detail as I do about the bad times because people out there don’t know that others have been through hell but then through the process of amazing grace. You hope that someone out there will hear what you have to say, and that it may matter.
Now I will say this to every sinner, though he should think himself to be the worst sinner who ever lived: cry to the Lord and seek Him while He may be found. A throne of grace is a place fitted for you. By simple faith, go to your Savior, for He is the throne of grace.
Grace is thickly counter-intuitive. It feelsrisky and unfair. It’s dangerous and disorderly. It wrestles control out of our hands. It is wild and unsettling. It turns everything that makes sense to us upside-down and inside-out.
For an actress to be a success, she must have the face of a Venus, the brains of a Minerva, the grace of Terpsichore, the memory of a MaCaulay, the figure of Juno, and the hide of a rhinoceros.
Sometimes I feel like the best role models and the people you should look up to most are the people who make mistakes because they show you how to overcome them and walk through that mistake with integrity and grace.
There’s nothing spectacular about Prophet T.B Joshua. He is just like every other human being. But if there is any difference, it is the grace of God; the righteousness of God. It is a product of the grace of God. So, I am a product of the grace of God.
Football was my saving grace so I want to let people know that you can achieve whatever you want. People like to concentrate on what you can’t do, so let’s preach what you can. Why would I want to talk about not being quick when I’m strong? That’s what I want to get across.
The thing that I love about ‘Will & Grace’ is that there’s a clear-cut reason for my character to be there. I come in with the zinger. My character seldom has much to do with moving the story ahead. I know exactly what my job is there. It’s just a party, basically. I’m just having a ball.
Lizz Wright, we call her lovingly ‘Amazing Grace.’ She has a folk and gospel kind of approach to the music, and she writes beautiful lyrics and songs. She’s like this balm that is really full and very rich and deep.
By God’s grace, my wife Shashi and I have been blessed with a daughter. It is the end of a long and painful wait for a child. It is a matter of unimaginable joy especially for my wife who had her heart set on another child ever since we lost our only son Shanu when he was just two-years-old.
I have to be very humble. I know that anything I do is through God. Through me, God can make a miracle. The most you can do is to think and create all love, all grace, all power, all health. When you do that, amazing things can happen. But the day I think that I’m doing a miracle myself is a foolish day for me.
I like playing a character every day. I like having something to go back to. I always enjoyed that with ‘Will & Grace.’ I like the camaraderie. I like having a crew that I know and I can work with every day.
I love people that are questionmarks. I love people that don’t have answers and are just trying to cope with it. I love people that just don’t tick boxes. There is a grace in them I can’t really find elsewhere.
We are not saying that if you believe in evolution that you can’t be a Christian, not at all. Because the Biblesays that by grace you are saved. You don’t save yourself. It is by confessing the Lord Jesus and that he was rose from the dead that you are saved.
I am really committed to my faith journey, and I am committed to my family. My husband and I have been married for almost 30 years, and we homeschool our kids. We have a different working-out-of the-box family, but we do make it work, obviously with God’s grace, and we are very grateful for that.
By the grace of God, my parents were fantastic. We were a very normal family, and we have had a very middle-class Indian upbringing. We were never made to realise who we were or that my father and mother were huge stars – it was a very normal house, and I’d like my daughter to have the same thing.
St. Paul did not want the sufferings encountered by being a Christian to discourage or dishearten anyone. He realized that when the Christian saw the blessings and grace that poured upon him after his trials, he would gain courage to suffer in his turn.
I’m happiest at home hanging out with the kids… Having a family has been my saving grace because I don’t work back to back on anything or I’d drive myself to an early grave with guilt and worry for my family, whom I’d never see.
It is entertainment; we mustn’t forget that. Dance is entertainment. You can have the best technicians in the world, but they’ll be boring to watch. It has to be about entertainment as well, but it’s quality, grace.
Success is a completely abstract thing – it has no bearing on daily life, family matters, the matter of artisticcreation, but it can affect grace, and if I lose that, I really have gained nothing from success.
I have not worked out my poems with a careful will, falling rather on haphazard and blind formulation of wordage, a more flowingconcept, in a hope for a more new and lively path. I do personalize at times, but this only for the grace and elan of the dance.
I love Twitter, and my little corner of it is heavily weighted in favour of women, many of them writers: Caitlin Moran, IndiaKnight, Lauren Laverne, Grace Dent, Deborah Orr, Marina Hyde, Suzanne Moore. I look at that list of names and think, ‘Here comes the fun – fun that knows its way around a dictionary.’
Churches that should be talking about the work of Christ on the cross and the grace of God for sinners are stuck on recycled pop psychology, moral exhortation, or entertainment. But these fail to speak to the eternal question that haunts all of us: ‘How do I know that I’m OK?’ We all want to know we are justified.
I have come to one conclusion: All that I am, all that I aspire to be, all that I was before, is by the grace of God. There are so many women in Africa, and outside Africa, who are more intelligent than I am.
I think sometimes people project things on you, but I’m trying to handle everything that’s happened to me with a certain amount of grace, dignity and good manners. You just can’t necessarily win all the time.
Some of the life lessons that my mom has taught me is that the road is not for the fastest or the swiftest, but it’s for those who enjoy it to the end. Just telling you that life is not pure grace. It’s like a marathon.
There are things God does for me daily, and it throws me into brain lock, because I know in my heart I don’t deserve that kind of grace. I don’t deserve that break.
When we all start to wake up and realize that our comforts are fleeting, and more money is never going to save this world, maybe, just maybe, will we be able to return back to the grace of America’s principal values.
From that moment, I did not cease to pray to God that by his grace it might one day be permitted to me to learn Greek.
I remember going to a son’s friend’s barmitzvah, and the text that he chose to explicate was right at the beginning of Genesis. It was not about a fall from grace or a fall from perfection; it was about an awakening into consciousness, which is what it means to be human.
When I was growing up, we didn’t have ‘Will & Grace.’ The one gay character was Monroe from ‘Too Close For Comfort’ – and he wasn’t even gay! At least they didn’t say he was. Same with Mr. Furley from ‘Three’s Company.’ You know, these were the characters that people would always make fun of.
This is how I define grace: you’re on the main stage, and it looks like it has been rehearsed 100 times, everything goes so smoothly. That’s where I get my confidence and success, from knowing that I have an edge because I know I’m prepared.
I still do believe in carrying yourself a certain way, and I do my best to be somewhat of a role model. I’m not a perfect person. I’m a human being. I’m not the Lord, but I do accept that responsibility, and that’s why I do try to carry myself with confidence, with poise, with grace, and with class.
Probably most dying patients, even when suffering greatly, would choose to live as long as possible. That courage and grace should be protected and honored, and we should put every effort into treating their symptoms.
You are either good or you’re not at whatever your job is. And it is more important that you understand the grace and love and peace you have in Christ, whether you are good or bad at whatever you are doing every day.
Most of the time one is discouraged by the work, but now and again by some grace something stands out and invites you to work on it, to elaborate it or animate it in some way. It’s a mysterious process.
If you had a friend going through a lot, you wouldn’t give them a hard time for going through it. You’d be like, it’s ok you’re going through it. So offer yourself the same grace and dignity that you’d offer to others.
Grace under pressure isn’t just about bullfighters and men at war. It’s about getting up every day to face a job or a whiteboss you don’t like but have to face to feed your children so they’ll grow up to be a better generation.
Nothing is old, nothing is new, save the light of grace underneath which beats a human heart. The way of feeling, of understanding, of loving; the way of seeing the country, the faces that your father saw, that your mother knew. The rest is chimerical.
If you’re truthful with yourself and others, forgiveness clears the path to righteousness, to grace. All we want is grace. We all want that light in our lives. And we can only get that when we go deep into truth.
At that time, I had recentlyfinished a book called Amazing Grace, which many people tell me is a very painful book to read. Well, if it was painful to read, it was also painful to write. I had pains in my chest for two years while I was writing that book.
Because it is only my brother and I who know what it is like to walk in the shadow and fill the shoes of larger-than-life parents. And I am biased, but even so, it is true – he does it with the kind of grace a lesser man wouldn’t be able to.
I do think children come in wired a certain way. Why else would I be filled with hope and optimism? You just could not keep me down for very long. You can call it grace or a gift from God, but I do think I came in with it.
I’m not saying everything out there is bad and toxic, but there are some things that are not scriptural. For example, some people don’t understand that the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
You will reciprocally promise love, loyalty and matrimonial honesty. We only want for you this day that these words constitute the principle of your entire life and that with the help of divine grace you will observe these solemnvows that today, before God, you formulate.
The poetexistedamong the cave men; he will exist among men of the atomic age, for he is an inherent part of man. Even religions have been born from the need for poetry, which is a spiritual need, and it is through the grace of poetry that the divine spark lives forever in the human flint.
Because up to sixteen years old you feel gymnastics more. You can show your emotion, grace, like woman gymnastics, not kid’s gymnastics. I feel I have good shape, and I can do it elements everything, but, it’s not competition for me.
Most of the time, it’s pretending I’m somebody else to get into a different head space. A lot of times, it’s just, ‘Who do I want to be onstagetonight? Is it going to be Marc Bolan, or is it going to be Grace Jones, or Roy Orbison?’
I am a father. My son’s name is Max and my daughter’s name is Billie Grace. Twelveyears ago Max was born with Down Syndrome. His journey has been complicated by infantile seizures, sleep apnea, dietary challenges and now, puberty!
‘Grace’ is basically a death prayer. Not something of sorrow, but of just casting away any fear of death. No relief will come – you really just have to stew in your life until it’s time to go. But sometimes, somebody else’s faith in you can do wonders.
I can make music out of anything. Even that phone ringing, I could sample that. I grew up listening to Missy, Britney, Kelis, Lil Kim, Grace Jones, all the eccentric, out-there women. And men like Freddie Mercury, DavidBowie. Those are my peopledem.
Parents walk a fine line between discipline and grace – values have to hold even when circumstances change or call for compromise or compassion. It’s the ultimate challenge to be both firm and fluid, soft and strong, yielding yet rock solid.
The overwhelmingmessage of the Atonement is the perfect love the Savior has for each and all of us. It is a love which is full of mercy, patience, grace, equity, long-suffering, and, above all, forgiving.
I still have a lot to learn about what the love of Christ is like – that it’s not just knowledge… but it’s allowing the truth to change you – allowing Christ’s message of grace and hope and love through the cross, that that message is the message that changes the way we look at everything in our lives.
From early on in my career, I was always challenged to create things. Early in my career, I created ‘ground and pound.’ When I fought Royce Grace the second time, I developed that: stay on guard, follow the hips, press the legs down, press the hips down. When he rested, I ground and pounded him.
When I did get married and then had children, it was Beatles‘ songs I sang to them at night. As one of the youngest of 24 cousins, I had never held an infant or baby-sat. I didn’t know any lullabies, so I sang Sam and Grace to sleep with ‘I Will’ and ‘P.S. I Love You.’
But – but the greatest way to witness is by walking that straight and narrow and also realizing that you’re going to mess up. That’s what grace is for. We’re going to fall, but we’ve got to get back up. And you’ve got to improve. And that’s what I’m all about.
I hope, by God’s grace, that I am truly a Christian, not deviating from the faith, and that I would rather suffer the penalty of a terrible death than wish to affirm anything outside of the faith or transgress the commandments of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I think there is a complicated side effect to overcoming evil in that we are forever changed by it. I think after we ingest some of the cruelty of the world, it takes years off of our lives, but it also gives us wisdom and a little grace, hopefully a sense of compassion.
Verse in itself does not constitute poetry. Verse is only an elegant vestment for a beautiful form. Poetry can express itself in prose, but it does so more perfectly under the grace and majesty of verse. It is poetry of soul that inspires noblesentiments and noble actions as well as noble writings.
In a state of grace, the soul is like a well of limpid water, from which flow only streams of clearest crystal. Its works are pleasing both to God and man, rising from the River of Life, beside which it is rooted like a tree.
I think faith is incredibly important because you will become overwhelmed with what’s happening and you will have waves of grief, but when you turn to your faith, I believe God will give you waves of grace to get through it.
I’m not ‘Grace.’ That album is like a brickonto itself. It’s like a coffin that I put certain feelings and observations in so that they can be capsulized forever. I wanted to put them there so I would be free to move on.
John Lewis inspired countless Americans across generations with a life dedicated to service and getting into ‘good trouble.’ He had a vision for a better America, shouldered the weight of change, and put his own safety on the line so that others could live with dignity and grace.
My fashion icons are Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Ava Gardner. Their classic looks and clean lines should be the cornerstones of your wardrobe – white cottonshirts, black Capri pants, pencilskirts and ballerina skirts.
Make sure you are safe, and never ever put yourself in a compromisingsituation, but once that is checked off the list, I think it’s really important for us to remember that someone needs us, and that your act of giving/helping/doing can truly become an act of grace once you get out of your head.
To finish a work? To finish a picture? What nonsense! To finish it means to be through with it, to kill it, to rid it of its soul, to give it its final blow the coup de grace for the painter as well as for the picture.
My mother was a full-time mother. She didn’t have much of her own career, her own life, her own experiences… everything was for her children. I will never be as good a mother as she was. She was just grace incarnate. She was the most generous, loving – she’s better than me.
I was anxious to get back to my life before ‘Will & Grace.’ You do need that time to find who you are again. Who am I without this? With fame, you can’t help but lose yourself. You want to be the one who says, ‘I’ll always remain the same,’ but it is humanly impossible to disallow fame to change you.
Believe in God, for with the grace of God the American rockets will go astray and we will be saved.
I was inspired by my son on the song ‘The Most Beautiful People Are Broken.’ Life is an extra challenge for him. But he does it all with such great grace and courage.
Maria Doyle Kennedy
God is not accustomed to refusing a good gift to those who ask for one. Since he is good, and especially to those who are faithful to him, let us hold fast to him with all our soul, our heart, our strength, and so enjoy his light and see his glory and possess the grace of supernatural joy.
I feel somewhere there is a fault in this whole mindset of not accepting the natural process. To age gracefully, to accept life with grace has more beauty and charm. But you have to be fit and healthy. And that is something we should strive for.
It is to be remedied that the falsetraitors will suffer no man to come into the king’s presence for no cause without bribes where none ought to be had. Any man might have his coming to him to ask him grace or judgment in such case as the king may give.
It was not any grace in me, but God that put this earnest care into my heart, that I should be one of the hunters or fishers whom long ago God foreshowed would come in the last days.
In today’s world, everyone’s so clued into their iPhones, and communication is going by the wayside as far as one-on-one is concerned. It’s very seldom that I walk into a room and parents make their children say hello and have a social grace with one another.
I had a pretty well-adjusted style of parenting. I think my parents were very young, very open. I think I learned many things from them: etiquette and grace, compassion and charity. And who I am today is due to a lot of attributes of my parents.
I don’t admire one particular style, but for eveningevents, I always look to Grace Kelly for inspiration.
In Hollywood, famoussingerElvis Presley used to wear gold chains. I was a huge follower of Presley. I used to think, if I become successful someday, then I will build a different image of mine. By the grace of God, I could do it with gold.
I don’t take off my nail polish when I go home because I’m too lazy, and they’re fine with it. Maybe the checkout at the grocerystore‘s not so great with it, but they’re fine with it. The distrust, the phobias, those are learned, those are taught. But the natural grace is to understand and to love.
‘Ordinary Grace’ freed me. I don’t have to write only Cork O’Connor novels now. I’m liberated. I can write whatever I want to write.
William Kent Krueger
In Jenny Offill’s remarkable first novel, ‘Last Things,’ 7-year-old Grace Davitt watches her mother, Anna, descend into madness and tries to make sense of the claustrophobic world that Anna has created for her.
Grace is above praise and blame. I never read the bad stuff people write, but I never read the good stuff, either. Ever. I know who I am, and I know that God looks down on me and smiles. I know that – without a shadow of a doubt.
Rukmini Devi was an icon for all the Bharat Natyam students at Kalakshetra. I grew up watching her at dance school and I associate her style with grace and humility – it’s never the clothes, it’s the persona.
It took more strength and hard work than I would’ve believed myself capable of, but with God’s grace and strength, I managed to lift myself up and become a better person that I’d ever imagined – I believe I have become a loving husband, a compassionate father, and a stronger wrestler.
I believe that Christians believe in salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, not by works. And we believe that if you’re saved, Jesus becomes your savior. He makes a promise to you. You can trust his promises. You can bank on that word.
Although the whole man partakes of this grace, it is first and most appropriately in the soul and later progresses to the body, inasmuch as the body of the man is capable of the same obedience to the will of God as the soul.
The first memory I have in the world is of death and tears. That is how I would mark the beginning of my life: the way people mark the end of one. My family had gathered at PapaJoe‘s house because Mam’ Grace was slipping away, only I didn’t register it that way. For some reason I thought that it was her birthday.
I grew up loving actresses or actors who were very classy but who seemed a little bit mysterious because you couldn’t grasp what they’re really thinking. I mean, Grace Kelly always looked impossibly glamorous, yet you could always see there was something behind her eyes.
How many times have we seen reality celebrities fall from grace – often through no fault of their own – and then go on a show like ‘CelebrityBig Brother‘ and say, ‘I want to show the public a different side of me.’ And I’m screaming at the telly going, ‘This is not therapy. This is voyeurism!’
Try to keep your soul always in peace and quiet, always ready for whatever our Lord may wish to work in you. It is certainly a higher virtue of the soul, and a greater grace, to be able to enjoy the Lord in different times and different places than in only one.
But Patsy, she was a great, great girl. And Brenda Lee is a wonderful person, and her mama Grace. I’ve known those folks for years and years and years.
It took me about three years to write About Grace. I wasn’t teaching two of those years, so I was working eight-hour days, five days a week. And it would include research and reading – it wasn’t just a blank page, laying down words.
The human heart tends toward tribalism before tolerance. We can go back to that world. It still lives in all of us. Fighting it is the challenge, particularly at a time when the most audacious thing you can do is show some grace.
G is Grace, the Flaming Star is the Torch of Reason. Those who possess this knowledge are indeed Illuminati.
I’m going to be a dad in a couple of weeks and by the grace of God, He’s allowing me to see this moment and I can’t wait. I think about it every day. My fiance and I have pillow talk about it every day, all day. I rub her belly, I’m blessed and I can’t wait for my little princess to get here.
By God’s grace, it was turning out to be a cracker of a film, so we named it ‘Laxmmi Bomb.’ Like a dhamaka of Laxmmi Bomb cannot be missed, the transgender lead character is powerful and radiant. Hence the name fits perfectly.
Our worldlysuccesses cannot be guaranteed, but our ability to achieve spiritual success is entirely up to us, thanks to the grace of God. The best advice I know is to give is to give those worldly things your best but never your all – reserve the ultimate hope for the only one who can grant it.
When I think about old Hollywood and the glamour of those days, women like Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, and Audrey Hepburn were not dressing the way some girls dress today. There was a certain mystery about them, and I feel like that’s gone in our industry.
Charlize Theron is perfect. She holds herself with so much poise and grace. I don’t know if she looks so good because she has the best body or because she has the confidence to feel comfortable in what she’s wearing.
I have a theory that you can tell what the head of a company is like by the people who work there. I knew a publishing house that was run on fear and paranoia, and I felt sorry for everyone who worked there. Needless to say, the person at the helm was not known for kindness, warmth, or grace.
In regard of the rich grace and wisdom of his love toward his people; for who sees not, but that it is a curse to be unready as these foolish virgins, who were thereforeshut out.
These are tough times, and the New Yorkers I have met are facingeconomic adversity with grace and dignity. They worry about their future, care about their neighbors and hope this storm will pass so they can focus on better days ahead.
God’s grace is amazing! We’re saved by grace – God’s undeserved favor – and we live by grace, which is also God’s power in our lives to do what we could never do in our own strength. And it’s all because God is love, and He loves us unconditionally, constantly and completely.
I think about people whose lives maybe hadn’t turned out as well as me and Joel’s lives, and I just think it’s just pure luck and the grace of God. I also think we were lucky to have each other as brothers.
Wonder was the grace of the country. Any action could be justified by that: the wonder it was rooted in. Period followed period, and finally the wonder was that things could be built so big. Bridges, skyscrapers, fortunes, all having a life first in the marketplace, still drew on the force of wonder.
George W. S. Trow
I’ve always been someone who’s believed in truth. I believe truth exists. I don’t believe in relativism, a ‘your truth, my truth‘ kind of a thing. However, I also believe that the truth must always be spoken in love – and that grace and truth are found in Jesus Christ.
