Amazing grace!

The service today was amazing!  It was about recovery!  Our nation has so much work to do in the recovery department!!

Before the sermon one of our praise songs was a favorite of mine ... Amazing Grace!  I found myself shedding tears I could not control as I sang the words ... I am so incredibly thankful for all I have been given!!!

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.
My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

[2x]
My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, Who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine
 

My favorite part of this song states ...

My chains are gone, I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
and like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace!

Think about those words!  I am free!  The words give me chills!  I am not sure I will ever be able to completely understand the price that was paid for my salvation.

But I am grateful and I will continue to cry each time I sing those words!

And I am reminded each morning with the sun rising, a new day and a new slate!!! 

Hope your rest day is a good one!
