Thankfully, Grace DOES Tell Us Another Story


The enemy loves to tell us lies.  The enemy will tell us horrible, horrible untruths...whispering them into our hearts and minds constantly...and if we listen long enough to the wrong voice, we will believe those lies.  We will live like we believe those lies. 

I've listened to this song by Mercy Me so many times and yet today it spoke directly to my heart.  I heard these words today and thought of many loved and dear ones in my life right now who are hearing the lies...and believing them...because things are so rough and so sad right now in their lives that it's easier to listen to the untruths than to allow the Truth to shine through...this song is for them.  

The lyrics tell us, GRACE, embodied in the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, tells us a different story than the world...different than the enemy.  Thank you Lord!
I love you dear friends and family...and I hope the Lord will comfort you today.  May you feel His hope and His love, His comfort, His strong arms around you somehow today.  May you hear His voice in your heart and mind and believe the Truths that He whispers into your heart through His Word and through the Words of others.

"Grace Tells Another Story"

They say don't waste your time You simply cannot find an ounce of good within the heart of man
they say we've got to lay in the bed we've made and live this life without a second chance but
I'm inclined to say there must be something more.

[chorus]
We've been told that the heart is just too far gone to save but grace tells us another story
Where glory sends hopelessness away oh grace tells us another story.

They say we cannot change there is no other way get used to it cause this is all there is they
say don't raise your voice cause we don't have a choice we're dealt this hand so learn to live
with it well i have to believer there must something more. [back to chorus]

And though we may not understand why You'd give us another chance we praise You who lets us
start again. [back to chorus]

 


All my best to you today,

Wonderful song and TRUTH, Susan! Voice of Truth, by Casting Crowns is also a wonderful song about believing God's whispers...instead of the enemy's.

Beautiful song about Jesus christ, what I really enjoyed reading this article is the part that says May you feel His hope and His love, His comfort, His strong arms around you somehow today. Thanks for this prayer.This is what we all need as christians to live a fulfilled life.

Thank you both for your words of encouragement too.

Marie, yes, love, love that song by Casting Crowns! In fact, my very first blog post was based on that song. :)
