With The Entire Universe At His Feet God Chose To Have A Personal Relationship With Us. This is the premise of Breathless Mercy. To many, including Christians, God seems too far away to touch and too holy for us to approach. In the book of Hebrews, chapter 4, verses 15 and 16 the writer encourages us with these words. "For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need." The stories of the very real people portrayed in this book are in some way representative of each of our lives. We can relate to their choices, that result in times of both grace and disgrace. We understand their struggles and share their fears and shame. We too long for the breathless mercy that God so desires to pour out upon each of us without limit.
