Musings From A Musical Mind

One Thing Remains

We sang this song yesterday in our worship service – led by our new music minster, Ben Sorte.  The song is from “Jesus Culture” and it’s a great one. The lyrics have been with me from then until now and just had to share this song with you.  The amazing grace of Jesus that never runs out and never gives up on me.

I stood there – letting the words and music pour over me.  It is a mind-blowing concept of perpetual grace going on and on and on.  I don’t think we humans can grasp that kind of love – I don’t think I will ever be able to wrap my mind around it.  The things I’ve done – or ever will do are covered in a limitless amount of payment that I neither deserve or can repay.  It’s a childhood teaching – and something I had heard my whole life – and if I ever get to the point where hearing about His grace is just “ordinary” or “old news” then I have lost something in the true beauty and mystery of it all.  I don’t think I really understand grace.  If it were up to me – there would be a time limit – an expiration date for all the stupid people who keep doing stupid things.  But I’m not God.  Instead – His is without time – there in abundance for those who cry out to Him.  Willing and able to be that constant thing – remaining

in our lives.

Are you ever afraid that His grace will run out?  That He will give up on you?  I encourage you to listen to this song today.  No matter what you’re going through today – I trust that you will remember His amazing grace.   When all else in your life fails – His one thing will always remain.

Enjoy and God Bless

  1. I’ve been trying to wrap my thoughts around grace lately and have failed miserably. Do you think God forgives me? ;)

    • Yes I do. I’m in the same place – we all fail – hard to wrap my mind around grace sometimes – I’m glad for the reminder that God is God and does not think like me. Good thing.

  2. I’m not afraid His grace will run out. I’m afraid He simply won’t do what I want Him to do. He didn’t for Paul. Paul was never healed. I’ve been living with certain situations for years. Some 13 yrs, some 25 yrs and some over 30 yrs. I’ve prayed. I’ve listened. I just don’t think He has any intention of changing them. There must be a reason, but I don’t know what it is. It’s hard to live with, but sometimes God’s will isn’t to solve a problem you have. He has other plans.

    • So true. He doesn’t always heal us the way we want Him too – or think He should – many examples of this in scripture and in the lives we live with people around us. But God is much more interested in changing us from the inside out – our thought process and our heart in the mean time. I wish I had more of the inside information – but it seems we are all on a “need to know” relationship – and that’s what trust and faith are all about. But it doesn’t make it easier, does it?
