Awestruck Grief

Discussion in 'Thoughts for Today' started by SueJLove, Apr 29, 2015.

  1. "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." ~ Galatians 2:20​

    The awe, respect, and submission to Almighty God that he so deserves seems so lost these days. As well, grief and mourning over our sins seems to have all but vanished. God wants us to fear (respect and surrender to and to be in awe of) him, and to come to him in humility and repentance (turning from our sin and turning to God). When we come to him in faith and obedience to his commands, and we bow before him humbly with this kind of awestruck grief, in realizing who God is, and in acknowledging that we are sinners in need of a Savior, then he forgives us of our sins and he cleanses us within, because of what Jesus Christ did for us in dying for our sins and in setting us free.

    Awestruck Grief / An Original Work / April 21, 2011

    When in awestruck grief
    o’er my sins, Lord, I bow,
    Will You hear me, Lord,
    and forgive me just now?
    I am so amazed that
    You could love me so.
    Yet, Your love and kindness
    ever fill my soul.

    Lord, You are amazing,
    and gracious and kind
    To have offered Yourself
    for us when we’re blind.
    You were crucified
    on that hill, Calvary,
    When they hung Your body
    to die on a tree.

    Now that You’ve redeemed us
    and, thus, set us free,
    I pray, Lord, for all
    on this earth to believe
    In Your sacrifice, Lord,
    cleansing all our sin,
    So that we can live for You,
    and die within.
