AMAZING GRACE

Culled from The Longing Within Devotional

It is the mercy of God that allows us to feel the impact of our sin. Until we fully understand the weight of our sin, we can’t truly celebrate the beauty of our costly redemption through God’s grace. Until we feel that weight, we hold onto sin. Grace is amazing, as the song goes, but it doesn’t erase the effects of our deliberate sin. Yet the pain of these consequences serves a purpose when we turn to God in repentance. We have real hope and wisdom to offer to those who come after us.

God is so much bigger than our past. He is so much more merciful than our sin. He is so much stronger than our weakest moment. His plans for us are so much greater than our failures. He is for us. Always for us! He restores us so you can walk from that renewed place and share our story with others who are broken. It’s a message this world is longing to hear. And when we’ve been shown that kind of grace, we can’t wait to share it with others.

Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)”

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 reigns

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 reigns

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.
