I have Grace pouring through my head at the present moment and the Power it has over people. I know that God’s gift of Grace is our Salvation and it is a gift of Life. It changes who we are once we have accepted it. This same Grace we can give to others and it will change the world….
**One thing that I do have to remember is that Grace is something we do not deserve but it is a Gift given Freely.
For those of you who know me — You know that I describe Grace with $2 Dollar Bills and there are times it will change the heart of those receiving them. I am not going to explain how this works for me – but someday you will have to connect with me for a cup of coffee and I will explain…
At the Present time I am feeling the need to receive the Power of Grace – it is something that I do not deserve but a Gift that would be extremely grateful at the present time. There are times in our lives that Receiving Grace can me the Gift of Humility that will Heal and give us strength.
Here is a verse that came up recently that explains the Power of Grace that we can have:
2nd Corinthians 12:9 – But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
A portion of my Study Bible describes this verse about Paul as: “Although God did not remove Paul’s physical affliction, he promised to demonstrate His power in Paul. The fact that God’s power is displayed in weak people should give us courage.” I really like this verse knowing what Paul had to go through and that we can have the same Power that was given to him.
The Song below from Matthew West in an extremely powerful one for me at the present time… As I read the Lyrics I can put myself in these moments of the Power of Grace winning in my life and the Grace that I so desperately need and desire.
Please enjoy the song………..
Grace Wins (By Matthew West): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQqZltmA0eM
Lyrics are below….
So as you can see — there is Power in Grace when we receive it and also when we give it away. It is Healing in many ways especially when we take it and give it to somebody does not deserve it…
So do you feel the Power of Grace?
Are you giving others Grace and Healing Relationships?
Can you feel the Power Grace has in receiving it and accepting it knowing it is Life and Salvation?
Grace can be a Humbling experience that is required to Heal Me.
In my weakest moment I see You Shaking Your head in disgrace I can read the disappointment Written all over Your face
Here come those whispers in my ear Saying, “who do you think you are?” Looks like you’re on your own from here ‘Cause grace could never reach that far
But in the shadow of that shame Beat down by all the blame I hear You call my name saying it’s not over And my heart starts to beat so loud now Drowning out the doubt I’m down, but I’m not out
There’s a war between guilt and grace And they’re fighting for a sacred space
But I’m living proof Grace wins every time No more lying down in death’s defeat
Now I’m rising up in Grace wins every time
Words can’t describe the way it feels When mercy floods a thirsty soul The broke inside begins to heal And grace returns what guilty stole
And in the shadow of that shame Beat down by all the blame I hear You call my name saying it’s not over And my heart starts to beat so loud now Drowning out the doubt I’m down, but I’m not out
There’s a war between guilt and grace And they’re fighting for a sacred space But I’m living proof Grace wins every time No more lying down in death’s defeat
Now I’m rising up in victory Singing, hallelujah Grace wins every time
For the prodigal son – Grace wins – For the woman at the well – Grace wins -For the blind man and the beggar – Grace wins – For always and forever – Grace wins – For the lost out on the streets – Grace wins – For the worst part of you and me – Grace wins – For the thief on the cross – Grace wins – For a world that is lost
