Last night I was watching a rerun on TBN and they were doing a recap of a program for Dottie Rambo. She recently went home to meet the God she loved and wrote about so often.This woman of faith wrote countless songs for our Lord. This songs words are important and incredible.
Joyce Meyers has been speaking on grace the last few days. They asked people what one of their biggest questions was about God and their relationship with Him. You know what they wanted to know? How do I know when I have done enough?---- Enough praying, enough reading my Bible, enough good works. I think you and I can at times identify with this.
Instead of just coming to Him because we love Him---satan gets tangled in our thoughts and we do it because we owe Him.....more...more.....MORE. And then when we don't sometimes it is easy to feel like He is mad at us. And like Joyce said this morning.....who wants to be around someone who you feel you must always be walking on egg shells with.
I have been here.....I think we all have. God is not mad with us. He is not going to allow sin in our lives but HE LOVES US. So tender are His thoughts towards us. He just wants us to know Him and enjoy being with Him. Can we do that today?
Just enjoy Him today.
Remember if it were not for the love of our Trinity.....we would be lost!
What amazing grace....and just in time.
Have a beautiful day and remember HE LOVES US!
Lyrics by Dottie Rambo
(to the tune of "Londerry Aire")
"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free,
and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."
Amazing Grace, shall always be my song of praise.
For it was grace that brought me liberty,
I do not know, just why He came to love me so.
He looked beyond my fault and saw my need.
I shall forever lift mine eyes to Calvary,
To view the cross, where Jesus died for me
How marvelous, His grace that caught my falling soul
He Looked beyond my fault and saw my need.
