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.
