Missed His Grace

When I see all the chaos
In this crazy world of ours
I sit here and I wonder
How our time has been devoured

The preciousness of each new day
Seems best to have escaped
Before we know it sun has set
And we have missed His grace

His grace is with us every day
Each moment we’re alive
It gives us hope to carry om
It helps us to survive

But most times we just let it slip
Not giving grace a thought
We think we made it on our own
Through every battle fought

The truth is that His grace was there
When we were in a bind
He brought us out and lifted us
Out of the daily grind

But we just went our way again
Not giving grace a thought
While all the while it was right there
Our future grace has bought

The next time trouble comes your way
Lift up your eyes and see
That grace was there beside you
And grace has set you free

Only By Grace

By grace I stand in Jesus Christ
By His own selfless sacrifice
My sins are gone because He died
Only by grace
Only by grace

By grace I stand complete in Him
I have His Spirit deep within
He leads me on to righteousness
Only by grace
Only by grace

Nothing of me only of Him
All that I am is His
I am a child of Christ the King
Only by grace
Only by grace

Someday soon He’ll some for me
I’ll stand amazed His face to see
Then heaven’s home is where I’ll be
Only by grace
Only by grace

What price He paid
What gift He gave
To show His love for me
I owe Him all
I’ll heed His call
He knows what’s best for me

Nothing of me only of Him
All that I am is His
I am a child of Christ the King
Only by grace
Only by grace

Enduring Love

Nothing I have done. No riches I have gained
Nothing I have written. No fame that I’ve attained
Nothing in this life can ever take the place
Of your enduring love and your amazing grace

I look up at the heavens and see the stars so bright
The dawn will soon awaken and birds will sing delight
All nature points to you and sings their songs of praise
For your enduring love and your amazing grace

CHORUS
All that I am I owe to you
All that I’ll be. All that I’ll do
I will forever sing your praise
Enduring love. Amazing grace

I look back at my past and see all you have done
My sins you bore alone. My victory you’ve won
And now I can not help but sing my song of praise
For your enduring love and your amazing grace

BRIDGE
I look ahead to what the future holds
I know there’s much that you would have me know
I yield myself to run this lifelong race
Enduring love. Amazing grace

I am always amazed when I hear people say they don’t believe in God. All of nature shows Him to us. He gave us this creation so we could see how much He loves us. Do you really think this just happened by chance? That humming birds somehow gained the ability to fly in place, their wings beating at 10 to 15 times a second? Or that the stars just happened to align themselves to form a big and a small dipper? Or that one star could be at the center of all stars and show us true north, becoming a means of navigation? How could that happen if things just scattered at a big bang? How could one planet be exactly far enough away from a sun to form plant life? How could animals even start to exist without a divine creator to begin the process? How could DNA become so complex without a designer? These questions, and so many more, need to be answered if one does not believe in a God who gives us all things.

As for me, I know He is real. I know he loves me. I know He has had grace upon me. I know He is with me every day. I know He carries me when I am down, heals me when I am sick, delivers me when I am in bondage and encourages me when I am discouraged. He calms my storms and gives me peace. He bore my sorrows and replaces them with joy. I am so thankful for His amazing grace and His enduring love. I don’t want to live without Him

John 15:5 King James Version (KJV)
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Jesus Life

Nothing At All

What could I do to have sins erased
Nothing, Lord. Nothing at all
What did I do to deserve your grace
Nothing, Lord. Nothing at all

What can I offer that will set me free
Nothing, Lord. Nothing at all
What will you charge to rescue me
Nothing, Lord. Nothing at all

I have been ransomed. I’ve been redeemed
All for no charge you have forgiven me
All that you ask is that I give my life
Just as you gave yours for me

What is the charge for the blessing you give
Nothing, Lord. Nothing at all
What is the rent when in heaven I live
Nothing, Lord. Nothing at all

Free, Lord. You set me free
All for no charge you have forgiven me
Nothing I bring you. Nothing I have
Is worth what you’ve given to me

I have been ransomed. I’ve been redeemed
All for no charge you have forgiven me
All that you ask is that I give my life
Just as you gave yours for me

He was taken by a legion of soldiers in the middle of the night. An illegal court hearing was held where He was beaten and spit upon. They sent Him to Pilate where He was lashed 40 times. He had a crown of thorns pout on His head and was mocked and beaten by the guards. .He was offered up to be set free, but the crowd cried “Crucify Him.” He carried His own cross until the weight was too much and they had someone help Him. The nailed Him to that cross and set it upright. While hanging there, in the midst of that torture, he cried out “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do” Then he gave up Hie life for my sins. For my failures. To heal my diseases. I did nothing to earn my salvation and I can do nothing to buy His grace. Nothing at all. His mercy on my life is what rescued me. He gave that to me, and so much more, that day he died on the cross. Then He rose victorious and he is with me every day to guide me, watch over me, heals me, provide for me. All because He loves me. Despite my wretchedness, He loved me so much That He died for me. I did nothing to deserve His love. Nothing at all.

Isaiah 53:5-6 King James Version (KJV)
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

I Am So Glad For His Grace

I’m far from perfect need I dare say
So many times I have drifted away
My life’s in limbo day after day
I am so glad for His grace

I look at the cross which is where I should be
Then I remember that He died for me
From sin and shame He set me free
I am so glad for His grace

Grace that amazes. Grace that endures
Grace that my pardon from sin assures
Grace more then needed to cover my faults
Wonderful grace. Marvelous grace
I am so glad for His grace

I try to walk the best that I can
I try to hold on to His faithful hand
All that I desire is to stay in His plan
I am so glad for His grace

Often I stumble. Often I fall
Often I wonder why he loves me at all
Often I’m caught in the snare of defeat
But then His grace comes, sets me up on my feet

Grace that amazes. Grace that endures
Grace that my pardon from sin assures
Grace more than needed to cover my faults
Wonderful grace. Marvelous grace
I am so glad for His grace

I don’t deserve an ounce of His grace. Not one minute of His time should be spent on me because I so often just ignore what He asks me to do. I am disobedient, selfish, impatient, insufficient and ungrateful way too often. I know my life often does not please Him because there is sin at the door. I must be a disappointment to Him.

Yet, through all this, He sends His grace. He hears my prayer. He forgives me. He loves me. He dries tears. He calms my fears. He holds me close. He waits for me to turn back to Him. He is my refuge and strength. I do not have to worry when I get lost, He will find me. That’s what His grace is all about, and I am so thankful for grace.

2 Corinthians 12:9  King James Version
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Help Me To Know You More

As I woke from my sleep this morning
I lifted your name
Your wonderful name

My voice shouted hallelujah
Your worthy of praise
All of my days

Then I thought of your grace
Amazing grace
Wonderful grace to me

Mighty God
Why do you love me so
Watch me and help me grow
All of the grace you show
Mighty God
I am in awe of you
Help me to know you more
Help me to know you more

The Great Display of Grace

I know that I’m now worthy of the love He has for me
He left His home in heaven just to die upon that tree
A sadness wells inside me every time I see His face
As the angels gaze in heaven at His great display of grace

He didn’t have to die for me yet suffered all that pain
The horror that he went through brought to Him no earthly gain
When he cried out it is finished all of heaven gave applause
My freedom had been purchased by the power of the cross

What a wonder now to see Him sitting on His royal throne
He has risen all victorious from a grave He did not own
Death defeated now He reigns over all my eyes can see
His great display pf grace has given me that victory

Now I lift my praises high to my Savior and my Lord
I stand and lift my hands to the one that I adore
Jesus Christ the Lamb of God is lifted high in all my praise
As I think about His mercy and His great display of grace

Out Of The Mire

In my distress

I cried to the Lord

He lifted me out of the mire

Carried me up 

To a lofty place

And filled all my heart’s desire

Now I can sing

Of His wonderful grace

His mercy is covering me

I’ll lift up His name

His wonderful name

For He has supplied all my needs

For all of my sorrows 

He gave me His joy

For all of my troubles

He gave me His peace 

For all of my worry

He gave me His hope

On top of it all was His love

Oh what a Savior

Is Jesus my Lord

What a wonderful Savior to me

Whenever I’m down

He lifts me up

Then walks down the road with me

The joy of the Lord is my strength 

His peace oasses all I know

The hope that He gives is enduring 

Oh how He loves me so

For all of my sorrows 

He gave me His joy

For all of my troubles

He gave me His peace 

For all of my worry

He gave me His hope

On top of it all was His love

What Love He Has For Me

I am often just amazed
At the love He has for me
When I didn’t even know Him
He died to rescue me

What love He has for me
What amazing grace I see
The Lord above
Showed me His love
When He died to set me free

I was dying in my sin
There was no way I could win
When He found me in distress
Washed me from deep down within

What love He has for me
What amazing grace I see
The Lord above
Showed me His love
When He died to set me free

Now I look at that old cross
Just amazed at what He did
For He gave His life for me
Now I’m forever His

What love He has for me
What amazing grace I see
The Lord above
Showed me His love
When He died to set me free
