p.s. Here's a bit of my HEARTand A PRAYER: The first song on the playlist is the song I played on guitar and sang at church yesterday (Amazing Grace..My Chains are Gone). My husband preached at a church just north of us. It was a blessing. He taught on Indwelling Sin. Just when we think that we've got sin beat it is standing at the door. We take offense too easily, judge too harshly, hold people to impossible standards while playing God, we are selfish, self centered, critical...on and on. And wouldn't you know, I sat down later that day with a friend who slightly offended me, and I instantly shot back a criticism. Don't you just hate yourself when you do that, am I the only one?? Oh, Lord to be more like You. So we must hold our tongue, forgive, and not be so quick to take offense. I say we, because the scripture says that we are all in the same boat with Indwelling Sin :(, but we can pray more, fight sin harder, keep our "armor" on and love more. :)
Help us, help me...to be more like You.
"My chains are gone, I've been set free...My God my Savior, has ransomed me...And like a flood, His mercy reigns...Unending love, Amazing Grace".

This post is beautiful and very moving. God's word MOVES us and melts the hardened heart! I stand beside you in your heart cry and prayer. I can't wait for the day that I am truly free from that UGLY old sin once and for all! The music you pick always speaks to me as well. Thank you.

What a touching post! I was just thinking about those times when I have reacted badly to a friend or loved one. How it makes you ache to take it back... how I have such good friends who are forgiving and loving. It's usually easier for me to forgive than to accept forgiveness when I've failed. We are so very human at times!

I'm very thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who understands our hearts at all times! And, that song was just what I needed to hear tonight. I would love to have heard you play and sing it! You are multi-talented!

Blessings & Hugs!

Isn't it something how God uses even our failings to remind us we need Him? I'm telling ya, I've said enough times, "If I were in charge of the world..." but thank goodness for all, I'm not and HE is! : )
