Grace Again and Again

Grace Again and Again

I love an analogy I heard the other day.  The
point was, if your child was in desperate need of your help from
a bully, would you stop to see if they had done their chores before
you decided you would help?

(Matthew 7:9&11b)
Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone?
how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!

It opened my eyes a little more to God's grace.  It has
taken me a lifetime to understand His grace.  I am still
trying to understand.  I am still amazed when He moves
in my life, when I feel I am either unworthy or my lack of
faith would never bring it to pass.

(I Chronicles 5:20)
 He answered their prayers, because they trusted in Him.

I don't deserve for God to answer my prayers.  I can never deserve
His love for me.  Grace allows His love. Because of God's
grace we are given a chance to pray.  To ask. To have
a friend that sticks closer than a brother.

2 Cor 1:10
He has delivered us from such a deadly peril,
and He will deliver us again. On Him we have set our hope that He
will continue to deliver us.

I am in need daily of God's presence, His grace, His
understanding of my life.  Because of this realization
I am hungry for His word.  I am only completely
satisfied by His love and companionship.

I deserve nothing and yet you gave yourself to me.
I needed help, you showed your power and all could see.

I prayed for your guidance and you showed me the way.
I asked for intervention and you gave me help today.

 I searched your word for comfort and found relief.
I wait not so patiently for you to answer my plea.

How can I convey the sense of realization you give?
How can I ever move from your light and my own life live?

How can they know your power and strength?
How can I not know you will be with me through this life's length?

I throw myself down at your throne of grace.
I will leave my burdens my prayers, again at this place.

God you hear me each and every time I cry.
God you have delivered this child from life's cruel fire.

Thank you for dying, for eternal life,  for setting me free.
Thank you for knowing and yet still loving me.
