Grace Like Rain

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 so clearly

Hallelujah, grace like rain falls down on me Hallelujah, all my stains are washed away, washed away

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Hallelujah, grace like rain falls down on me
Hallelujah, all my stains are washed away, washed away

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing Your praise
Than when we first begun

Hallelujah, grace like rain falls down on me
Hallelujah, all my stains are washed away, washed away


Not really connected to the above or maybe it really is.....THE PROMISE OF REAL CHANGE You don't have to pretend you've got it all together—when you don't. You don't have to pretend your best relationship deeply satisfies—when it doesn't. You don't have to pretend your struggle with sin is a thing of the past—when it isn't. "Only Christians have the capacity to never pretend," says Larry Crabb. That's because real change is only possible when you face the realities of your internal life and let God mold you....

Anyway give it a listen.......Jared and Allison are having this at their wedding and I heard it this morning, never fails to move me......Have a great weekend!!

Ah, thanks for the refrshing post. I have been feeling God's grace for quite a while now. I feel rich and satisfied so that I can go out and glorify him. People who believe in Christ are in the minority, anywhere you go can be an evangelistic moment.

I love what Larry Crabb says in this quote...do you remember where you got that, was it one of his books?

Thanks for a great post to start me weekend out with.

I still have to sign in on blogger on your blog...
