God’s Amazing Grace

God’s Grace…

We have all heard it taught over and over. We have sung Amazing Grace so many times we probably don’t even think about the words anymore. And yet, His Grace is exactly what we are supposed to be thankful for!

Grace… is it sufficient for you? Is it a sweet sound to you? Amazing Grace – how sweet the sound!

So many verses about GRACE in the Word of God. Here are two of many…

Isaiah 54:8 I was angry for a moment and hid my face from you; but with everlasting grace I will have compassion on you,”says Adonai your Redeemer.

Titus 2:11 For God’s grace, which brings deliverance, has appeared to all people.

God’s Grace is woven throughout the entire Word of God. God, even when He was angry, when repentance occurred – He extended grace. It truly has appeared to all people.

The song Amazing Grace has been on my mind this weekend. Our family friend, Steph Carse, did this beautiful rendition and I believe it will bless you.

Do your best to truly soak in the words and let them bless you. Don’t just “sing it” or “listen just to listen.” The words are truly powerful.

Amazing Grace

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

Was Grace that taught my heart to fear

And Grace, my fears relieved

How precious did that Grace appear

The hour I first believed

Through many dangers, toils and snares

We have already come

T’was Grace that brought us safe thus far

And Grace will lead us home

The Lord has promised good to me,

His Word my hope secures;

He will my Shield and Portion be,

As long as life endures.

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.
