I never cease to be amazed when God sends me exactly what I need, exactly when I need it. It has been a really rough day, where the spiritual battle has been tangible. Today Charlotte emailed me and sent me this link to God Tube for a song by Third Day. It is sung to the tune of Amazing Grace. Charlotte didn't know this but that song is a part of my salvation experience (the day after I was saved at family camp, there was a talent show and I played Amazing Grace on my flute) and whenever I hear it I cry. I cry because in those moments I am reminded again how it is only His Grace that has saved me and how powerful that is. It's not a "I'm a lowly worm, pathetic doormat" kind of way that the world often thinks. It is a truthful, honest assessment of who I am in relation to Him and seeing again, the real need I have and not sinking in despair but raising my eyes and hands and heart to Him, recognizing that He Alone has made me Whole.
The song is worth a listen. Thank you Charlotte for sharing. I took a little worship break and feel nourished after listening, praising and reading the scripture (Psalm 50:1-15) that she shared. I want to pass it on to any of my readers who may also need that lift of encouragement today too.
