Were It Not For Grace

“For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” – John 6:40 (ESV)

*** Today marks my 3rd “re-birthday”…born again on June 27, 2007…

Thank you Father, for all that You are and for your saving grace…for saving me from a life I did not know I needed saving from. I never looked at myself as a sinner until I read Your Word and was given understanding of it by the Holy Spirit. I stumble and fall often and fail to glorify You in much of what I do, but I thank You that You are faithful, even as I am not. Help me to live a life that is pleasing to You, that honors You. Sustain in me a desire for Your Word, so that I will have it written on my heart, to navigate through this world. Help me to be the husband you’ve called me to, and the friend to others that I should be. Help me to pray for others as I ought to.

I love You and thank You for everything today.

In Jesus’ name.

Amen.


Time measured out my days
Life carried me along
In my soul I yearned to follow God
But knew I’d never be so strong
I looked hard at this world
To learn how heaven could be gained
Just to end where I began
Where human effort is all in vain

Were it not for grace
I can tell you where I’d be
Wandering down some pointless road to nowhere
With my salvation up to me
I know how that would go
The battles I would face
Forever running but losing the race
Were it not for grace

So here is all my praise
Expressed with all my heart
Offered to the Friend who took my place
And ran a course I could not start
And when He saw in full
What loving me would cost
He still went the final mile, between me and heaven
So I would not be lost

Were it not for grace
I can tell you where I’d be
Wandering down some pointless road to nowhere
With my salvation up to me
I know how that would go
The battles I would face
Forever running but losing the race
Were it not for grace

Forever running but losing the race
Were it not for grace

    I’m late in responding–but I’m also hugely encourage to know that someone with your passion and maturity in the Lord has been walking with Him with such passion for three years. Bless you, friend!
