Amazing Grace is my favorite hymn. You hear it alot at funerals. It is beautiful when someone plays the bag pipes. When my father died, I can remember trying to get the words out but I couldn’t sing. The words bring comfort to a broken heart. What is grace? To me grace is when you feel like you can’t go on and the arms of the Lord scoop you up and tell you it is going to be ok. Why? Because He died for us on the cross. His precious blood was shed for you and for me. So, even in our most troubling times we can remember that we are victors in Christ. Grace is an amazing thing that only the Lord can give.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
