So I’ve set out on this path of discovery, (having chosen the title: The Far Reaches of Grace,) delving into God’s word, seeking definition and direction. I came across this portion of scripture from The Message in Romans chapter 5, that grace invites us into life.
I am astounded at the thought of that and have to just pause and consider what is being said. When I think about it I become excited and wonder what God can accomplish in my life if I will but heed the call.
God’s grace tugs at my heart
Whispering victory over sin
Stirring joy, instilling peace
And grand excitement from within
Though my mind forever battles
All the world holds in it’s hand
And it seems so overwhelming
In His grace I know I’ll stand
For the future is a mystery
The present like a maze
The past beyond undoing
I’m so thankful for God’s grace
