500 words of grace

500 words of Grace

My friend Shae, had this idea on her blog: You Have My Word called:

500 words of Grace

I thought I would take part, this is my humble offering of 500 words of grace:

These are my words / they are you words / this is our story / this is your story / this is my story / Your grace has found me just as I am / empty handed but alive in Your hands /sometimes the word GRACE is almost over used among our Christian circles / but stop and think about it. / What does grace mean to you? / Does it ever run dry? / I think of how I mess up, how unworthy I am / yet YOU still believe in me / You still see me as YOU intended for me to be / not defined by my sin and constant screwing up / Unending Grace will make you leave the ground /I once heard someone break the word up like this: G (God’s) R (riches) A (at) C (Christ’s) E (expense) / For all have sinned / all fall short of the glory of God /we are justified freely by His Grace / through redemption in Jesus Christ /meaning that by Jesus’ death we’re forgiven. / More than that we are set free / we are welcomed into His kingdom, His family with a purpose and a new view and new heart /I look at my wary heart / I so often need a new one /oh how sweet the sound I know it saved but is it changing a wretch like me / oh my God how sweet the sound I once was blind but now I look away / how often do we make grace “cheap”? /Grace is free / yet it cost the life of Jesus / such love should move us more often, right? / Each day we should pause and soak in that grace / live with gratitude / live with conviction /bent down I saw His dust covered feet / His voice was tender it was loving / I looked up into His eyes / Go now and leave your life of sin / such love such grace /Grace forgot the past / as far as the east is from the west so far has he removed our transgressions from us / You see I am learning that grace is more than just “a forgiveness of sins” / Grace is about a new life and a new perspective / Grace makes us write songs / Grace makes us give His love away / Grace was born in a stable / Grace should dwell in our hearts / Guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life /I do not understand what I do, for what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do /Enter Grace / Nothing will be able to separate us from the LOVE of God /Thank you Jesus for your grace / Amazing Grace /One day at a time I can see You took my life this far / With gratitude /May your grace continually move me / Jesus loves you
