Grace

I heard this song (below) today for the first time and feel in love with it… especially the chorus where it talks about walking in his grace that is sufficient for each day.  While I think that many of us have heard the phrase, “Jesus Loves You” more times than we could count, sometimes it stays in our heads and is hearted for our hearts to understand.

 

I have been pondering the following verses and it seems to fit with this idea too:

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (Eph. 3:17-19

It’s such a strange concept… to KNOW God’s love that SURPASSES KNOWLEDGE.  I can’t quite wrap my mind around how that works, but I think that’s kind of the point. :)  His love is just THAT big… God, help us know that love, yes in our heads, but also in our hearts!

Grace

by Laura Story

 

My heart is so proud.

My mind is so unfocused.

I see the things You do through me as great things I have done.

And now you gently break me

And lovingly you take me

And hold me as My Father

And mold me as My Maker

 

I ask you, “How many times will you pick me up when I keep on letting you down?

And each time I will fall short of your glory, How far will forgiveness abound?”

And you answer

“My child, I love you.

And as long as you’re seeking My face

You’ll walk in the power of My daily, sufficient grace.”

 

At times I may grow weak

And feel a bit discouraged

Knowing that someone, somewhere could do a better job

For who am I to serve You

I knowI don’t deserve You

But that’s the part that burns in my heart

and keeps me hanging on

 

I ask you, “How many times will you pick me up when I keep on letting you down?

And each time I will fall short of your glory, How far will forgiveness abound?”

And you answer,

“My child, I love you.

And as long as you’re seeking my face

You’ll walk in the power of my daily, sufficient grace.”

 

You are so patient with me, Lord

 

As I walk with you, I’m learning

What Your grace really means

The price that I could never pay

Was paid on Calvary.

So instead of trying to repay You

I’m learning to simply obey You

By giving up my life to You

For all that You’ve given to me

 

I ask you, “How many times will you pick me up,

when I keep on letting you down?

And each time I will fall short of your glory,

How far will forgiveness abound?”

And you answer

“My child, I love you.

And as long as you’re seeking My face

You’ll walk in the power

of My daily,

sufficient

grace.”
