@barbilyn0875,
I assume you want a translation to Latin.

Note that this is idiomatic English, so the translation will not be literal.

Ecce sine gratia Dei ego.

Ecce --> (used to call attention to someone or something) Behold
sine --> without
gratia --> grace
Dei --> of God
ego --> I

George,

Thanks for your reply! I do realize that the translation will not be literal. I am mainly concerned with the meaning being accurate. I want to say "If not for the grace of God, I might (or would) suffer the same fate. It is a prominent phrase in the rooms of 12 Step programs, and I wanted to convey that idea in latin. Any further explanation would be greatly appreciated!
George

@barbilyn0875,
That's as close to the meaning as I can get.
