Grace

At the conclusion of my devos this morning, I had a song running through my head. It seemed to fit with my bout of fear yesterday. So after another time of confessing this morning, I meditated on these word for awhile. My heart feels so blessed to have such an amazing God that forgives and blesses. I don't want to miss out on the joy of His leading because of fear. I don't want to fearfully follow God's leading, but faithfully follow. I'm not saying the fear is gone, but I'm working on it.

Grace
by Carolyn Hamlin

Lord, as I seek your guidance for the day,
I find my thoughts unyielding: confusion clouds my way,
But, then when I bow to you, the challenges you guide me through,
Your promises are ever new: I claim them for today.

Your will cannot lead me where your grace cannot keep me.
Your hand will protect me: I rest in your care.
Your eyes will watch over me: Your love will forgive me.
And when I am faltering, I still will find you there.

Each new day’s design is guided by your hand,
And graciously revealed as I seek your Master plan.
Keep my footsteps faithful when from you I go.
Return me to the joy that your blessings can bestow.

Your will cannot lead me where your grace cannot keep me.
Your hand will protect me: I rest in your care.
Your eyes will watch over me: Your love will forgive me.
And when I am faltering, I still will find you there.

Your eyes will watch over me,
Your love will forgive me,
And when I am faltering,
Lord, I will find you there

I remember my first meeting I had when I was on deputation for Haiti. I had to drive 6 hours to New York State and I think I was crying the first two hours...then this song come on the radio and Lord calmed my heart right away.

I love that song! It is so special and so very true! I'm so glad I don't have to do anything without God's grace.
