Amazing Grace

In more than one instance these past couple of weeks I see God working "all things together for my good," and in the here and now.

"And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]!" Isaiah 30:18 Amplified

I know that I know that I'm standing in His amazing grace. Alleluia!

Chris Tomlin - Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)



Amazing Grace [the movie] was released in 2007 to mark the 200th Anniversary of the passing of the bill, which abolished slave trade in the British Empire. This film is much more than a history lesson it shares the journey of ordinary men who by the power of Christ through conversion, changed the world. Furthermore, it brings to light the atrocities of bondage for the sake of gaining wealth and the stripping of God's ownership over His creation.
