Amazing Grace

Not the old hymn that most people know… The one that has like six verses. While that’s a tested and true old classic, I can take or leave it. I don’t dislike it, but when you’re a church musician your whole life, there’s only so much improv you can do with it. And it gets requested over and over.

No, I woke up in the wee small hours with this song in my head and I thought, “I’m going back to sleep. Maybe it will change.” It didn’t. When my clock went off, the refrain was running through my mind… And the refrain is just about all I know of this song.

This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Jesus, I sing for
All that You’ve done for me

This Is a Phil Wickham song. Though I’m not a huge fan, I love these lyrics. I’m seeing a trend this week!

The funny thing is that we took our grandkids to see the new Muppet movie last night, and I thought I’d wake up this morning with their theme song running through my head!!! You know the one I’m talking about. “It’s time to start the music. It’s time to light the lights. It’s time to get things started on the muppet show tonight.”

I’m so glad God had other plans. I am thankful for His amazing grace, His unfailing love. The cover image for this blog post is a watercolor I did this weekend of a photo I took when I was in Rabat, Morocco last fall. (See original photo below.) I saw these beautiful blooms standing tall and proud in the middle of a stone walkway… A symbol to me of Gods unfailing love. If He cares so beautifully for this flower in the rock, how much more he must care for his children.

And I’m glad God is the one choosing the play list every morning!!!!

Happy Lord’s Day!!!
