Grace, what have You done?
Murdered for me on that cross
Accused in absence of wrong
My sin washed away in Your blood

Too much to make sense of it all
I know that Your love breaks my fall
The scandal of grace, You died in my place
So my soul will live

And it’s all, because of You, Jesus

Thank You Jesus

Beautiful Giver

We owe nothing from God. Everything we have, our life is a gift from Him. He’s not demanding us to pay Him back nor work for His favor. It’s all grace. A person who believes in this truth will serve and live for God not so he could pay God nor buy His approval. The person will freely give his life to God because of love, out of adoration to this beautiful Giver.

Amazing grace! How sweet the soundThat saved a wretch like me.I once was lost, but now I am found,Was blind but now I see.

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I am found,
Was blind but now I see.

A Deception…

We’ve bought into a lie. By we, I mean both men and women. We’ve bought into new definitions for timeless virtues. Beauty has been replaced by sexy and hot. Dignity and grace has been replaced by naughty and wild. Things and moments have replaced principles and purpose. 

This Is Who You Are
I’m hoping your father has told you this, but if he hasn’t, let me tell you who you are. When I thought this list up, I imagined myself with a daughter, a daughter that is entering a huge world full of messages, and voices, and opinions, and perspectives, full of advertisements, and movies, and shows, and music, and lyrics, and smart asses, and bad asses, angels, and demons, full of hurt, full of fear, full of lies, full of denial, full of opportunity, yet full of lost dreams, full of haunting regrets, full of so many beautiful things, and full of so many broken hearts breaking the hearts of others. I won’t be able to protect her at some point. I won’t be able to guide her all the time. She’s always welcome to run back, and I’ll always be there to remind her of who she is.

Inconceivable Grace

One can’t help but be a bit stunned by the inconceivability of it all. Why does Jesus stand on life’s most barren hill and await me with outstretched, nail-pierced hands? A “crazy, holy grace” it has been called.’ A type of grace that doesn’t hold up to logic. But then I guess grace doesn’t have to be logical. If it did, it wouldn’t be grace.

DJ Dylan talks about surrendering her life to Jesus.

It took me a year and a half to put my hands up and surrender, to say, “Alright Jesus, I’m giving up. Have Your way with me completely!” A year and a half of doubts, worries, and an endless need for proof…despite the things that I’ve seen Him do! But you know what? Jesus never lost patience with me and believe me, that goes for you too.

He is there, quietly and gently waiting until you are ready to break free from the bondages of fear, the shackles of doubt, the grip of disbelief and other lies that have taken root of you in this physical, fallen world…it’s not that Jesus doesn’t want to help you. He does… more than anything in the world. That is His purpose, to serve as our bridge back to God, so that God may fulfill all His promises to us. The dreams that you have in your heart? God wants to give them to you. He longs to give you a life  of abundance, of blessings, of overflowing love. He is our Father after all. more here: http://reformedrockstar.wordpress.com/2012/07/07/jesus-invented-the-face-palm/

When GOD gives us tasks He also gives us the Grace to accomplish it. woo!

philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

I love my getting older days because grace becomes more evident. It also makes me smile as I recall my youth.

Trying to work your way into God’s Favor is saying that Jesus’ sacrifice wasn’t good enough. That’s pride with wings!
