Grace

Story behind the song:

That whole song was inspired by well... actually the Gospel of Luke, in the Gospel of Luke specifically the character Peter, and reading to that gospel and seeing him actually seeing myself in him..., as a songwriter, as a worship leader, you know just doing my best to write these songs and to live these songs out, you know singing these songs like "Lord, I give you my heart I give you my soul..." and stuff like that, and then just even that day just living differently, I just realizing Gosh, I'm just so unworthy of this, and then, 'cause i was so impacted by the character Peter, I read through the book he wrote, you know first and second PeteT, and it's so amazing to see the difference in Peter, and the gospel, and the first Peter,'cause he gives us, he says... in season and out of season always be ready to give defense for hope that's in you, and it' so cool to hear that heart coming from this guy who... just to young girls who was afraid to say he knew Jesus, you know what I mean? and all because of the grace of god and through...Jesus's affecting his life, and jesus's changing his life, he got to this place of realization of what is important, and there is so much courage, so much strength, and so much grace releship that we share with Jesus... so that's when i wrote the song called "Grace", and it's like, it's very... has a lot of illusion to that sort of Peter, you know, talks about this guy... "The sea is a rage within my heart I turn my sight to the crashing waves..." kind of that illusion to Peter you know, walking on the water, having the faith to run, but then realizing you never have enough faith you know, it's all about the grace of God the supplys what you need.
