Amazing grace– how sweet the sound-
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind but now I see.
‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And GRACE my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.
Thru many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come;
‘Tis GRACE that brought me safe thus far,
And GRACE will lead me home.
When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we ‘d first begun.
In the days before we got on this roller coaster, I heard a message, on the radio, about grace. It was so meant to be, and I love seeing these little examples of how the Lord is so involved in the details of our lives. It was playing on the radio in the kitchen, at a time when the radio isn’t normally on, but dinner prep was running quite late that evening (in retrospect, God’s timing), and so there I was, up to my elbows in dishes and food, and I can remember tuning everything out and being so stirred by this message on God’s grace, so stirred that I made myself a note to look it up, and see if I could get as copy of it, so I could hear it again.
I wrote to the ministry, and they not only looked it up for me, they sent me the CD’s of the entire series- on the character of God, free of charge.
The Lord is in the details of our lives, we just need to open our eyes and notice…
I’m praying now more than ever for grace, grace to get through this, to run this long and hard race. I trust in a living God who is able to grant more grace than I can even pray for. I trust in a living God who hears my prayers, who knows the cries of my heart, who loves my son more than I can even fathom.
‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus!
May your Sunday be blessed, and again, thank you so much for the prayers and support!
