now to live

I love the song, "O Great God" especially the last part that says,
Help me now to live a life that's dependent on your grace."
It reminds me of how easy it is to forget grace and live a life based on works and accomplishments.
The first verse is good as well.
Some recent quotes that I like along these lines of love and grace are....
"We love those who know the worst of us and don't turn their faces away." Walker Percy, Love in the Ruins
"We had our parallel society. And in that parallel society, we wrote our plays and sang out songs and read our poems, until we knew the truth so well that we could go into the streets of Prague and say, "We don't believe your lies anymore!" and communism had to fall." Vacalav Havel, playwright and former president of the Czech Republic, when asked how the revolution to overthrow communism in the Czech Republic was bloodless and yet experienced real staying power.
That's all. Just wanted to share some things that had impacted me.
