I saw Joyce Meyer tweet this about a month or so ago:
And I was like OMG!! That pretty much sums up my year – I’ve come through this year by his total GRACE!!
Most of this year I’ve deserved to have my ass kicked but God has continued to bless me and I’m thankful for his grace in my life now that I’ve come to the end of 2013 and can look back on this year. My Dad shared this scripture with us tonight so I’ll share it with you too and what I took away from it was God gives us grace and the freedom to do what we want but at the same time we can’t take Gods grace for granted:
Ecclesiastes 11:9 & 12:1
Young man, it’s wonderful to be young! Enjoy every minute of it! Do all you want to; take in everything, but realise that you must account to God for everything you do. Don’t let the excitement of being young cause you to forget about your creator. Honour him in your youth.
It’s been an awesome year with a lot of ups and downs but through it all I do feel like God has continued to bless me when I definitely needed my ‘behind kicked’
My chains are gone
I’ve been set free
My God my Saviour has rescued me
And like a flood his mercy reigns
Unending love, Amazing Grace
I’m a fan of Stan Walker and one of my favourite songs that he did on Australian Idol when he was competing was this version of Amazing Grace – Enjoy ….
