This is Amazing Grace

I went to a Woman’s Conference called Embrace a few nights ago. The worship was amazing. We sang this song which I had never heard before. I loved it! The words just touched my heart. I just love when song lyrics hit you in the face.

This is Amazing Grace – Phil Wickham

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder
And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Oh, Jesus, I sing for
All that You’ve done for me

Who brings our chaos back into order
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter
The King of Glory, the King of Glory

Who rules the nations with truth and justice
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy, worthy, worthy

Dear Lord…

I know that You love me more than anyone else ever will. I am learning to love myself and to see myself the way You do. I know that You will never leave me to fend for myself. I trust in Your promises, the promises of protection and provision of strength to the weak. In my weakness I know that You are strong. Your strength and love carries me from one moment to the next. You are my peace when the storms threaten to steer me of course. You will never fail me, Your love will never fail me. I know that whatever happens in this life, I will not be alone. You are so good to me despite my failings, despite my shortcomings and imperfections. You are always good and that cannot change. You cannot be changed. I can be changed and I have been. Your love has changed me. Your longing for me has changed my life. You have called me by name. I am Yours and You are mine.

95/365: Alive

alive_big

95/365: Alive — Yesterday I wrote about the burial of Jesus. I finished saying that death could not beat Him. Today Christians remember that on the third day Jesus rose from the dead. He defeated the grave. He is alive. I believe that He lives inside of me. I thank God often that Jesus died and rose again. It is by His grace and mercy that I am free. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus my sins are forgiven and I have eternal life.

He said to them “Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day.” (Luke 24 verse 26)

The Anger Journey

Recently as part of my word challenge for this year I wrote a post about anger and how I felt towards God over the loss of my brother. Since then it has played on my mind an awful lot. I have managed to speak to other people about the anger I am feeling. I wanted to share with you a little of the journey I have been on.

At The Cross (Love Ran Red)

Where Your love ran red and my sin washed white, I’m in awe of You

Jesus died on the cross to pay my debt, a debt that I could never pay myself. He suffered because of me and my sin. Despite my imperfections and my failings He stretched out His arms and declared His love for me. It is only through His love that I am free.

93/365: Blood

93/365: Blood — Today marks one of the most important days in the Christian calender. Christians across the world will be remembering the day that Jesus died. His death was cruel and painful. He did not deserve what was thrown at Him. It should have been us on that cross. He was nailed to the cross because of us, because of our actions. But God loved us far too much to see us die. I would imagine that He loved Jesus so much more. His love for us saw Him sacrifice His only son. Jesus suffered and died on that cross because of God’s love for us. Jesus died so that we could live. We needed a Saviour because we would never be able to save ourselves.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3 verse 16)
