Portraits of Grace is a snapshot into the lives of the people at King’s Cross Church. As “kingdom minded, kingdom people,” we recognize God’s work in every detail of our lives. We invite you to meet the people of our church.

For years, I fought tooth and nail to never let myself be a cheater and a liar. I sought to be perfect–to redeem my mother’s failures, so I won’t be a failure. We fought and by God’s grace, she continued to love and move towards me. By God’s grace I challenged and told her how much hurt I experienced and how much I still need her as my mother. I think I fought to forgive her because I loved her so much too.

Recently I went to my first short term missions trip, and I learned that Christ has redeemed our sin and pain and wants healing and reconciliation. I saw how much God loves us as His children. My relationship with my parents, particularly with my mother, is not perfect. I’m not perfect – I’ve damaged many relationships. But the Bible tells me I can wait with peace because He has already overcome this world with His love and grace. (2/2)
