God’s Gift

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

For it’s by grace through faith we’re saved
And not of works our own
In You and You alone we boast
To make Your Glory known

There is a void in all our hearts
That only God fulfills
And for this cause we so delight
To only do Thy will

There’s nothing we can do to earn
The favor of Your grace
We have no grounds on which to stand
Yet sins You do erase

Your love is ever powerful
The Spirit intercedes
You want to bring Your lost ones home
You know our every need

Salvation comes through faith by grace
Redemption from above
God’s gift of grace is all we need
Through Christ’s unending love

Psalm 40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.

Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Romans 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning

  1. Good morning. Indeed we all must remember that we are saved by grace alone. It’s always a blessing to come by here.
    Have a blessed day in Christ Jesus

  2. Hi Scotti, I was going to ask you how you do this, but then realized I already know 🙂

    Have you asked our Father if a book is in His future plans?

    Much love and all His blessings to you. Sandi

    About 3 years ago I dropped into a black hole – four months of absolute terror. I wanted to end my life, but somehow [Holy Spirit], I reached out to a friend who took me to hospital. I had three visits [hospital] in four months – I actually thought I was in hell. I imagine I was going through some sort of metamorphosis [mental, physical & spiritual]. I had been seeing a therapist [1994] on a regular basis, up until this point in time. I actually thought I would be locked away – but the hospital staff was very supportive [I had no control over my process]. I was released from hospital 16th September 1994, but my fear, pain & shame had only subsided a little. I remember this particular morning waking up [home] & my process would start up again [fear, pain, & shame]. No one could help me, not even my therapist [I was terrified]. I asked Jesus Christ to have mercy on me & forgive me my sins. Slowly, all my fear has dissipated & I believe Jesus delivered me from my “psychological prison.” I am a practicing Catholic & the Holy Spirit is my friend & strength; every day since then has been a joy & blessing. I deserve to go to hell for the life I have led, but Jesus through His sacrifice on the cross, delivered me from my inequities. John 3: 8, John 15: 26, are verses I can relate to, organically. He’s a real person who is with me all the time. I have so much joy & peace in my life, today, after a childhood spent in orphanages [England & Australia]. God LOVES me so much. Fear, pain, & shame, are no longer my constant companions. I just wanted to share my experience with you [Luke 8: 16 – 17].

    Peace Be With You
    Micky
