Amazing Grace

Yes, this song was written by John Newton. This hymn is one that I have known since I was a little girl; it was my Grandmother’s favorite song. I am sure that many of you have heard this song more than once in your lifetime.

My daughter and I recently read a religious book together, and we stumbled upon a quote from John Newton, which had part of this song in it. She asked me to look him up online, as she often does when we read about something that we like, and we found this thorough video of his life on Youtube.

The part in the beginning of this video, where his mother set him up for a life with God, touched me. Although he slipped up, like we all tend to do sometimes, he was able to bounce back into a life with God simply by hearing the Lord’s name when he needed to hear it the most.

This was a “wake-up call” for me because I know that I can do a better job at sharing God’s love with my daughter and with others as well. His grace is amazing, it is something to be shared, and tell others about as often as possible.

I feel blessed to be able to walk and jog on a daily basis. Having Multiple Sclerosis, and still being able to say that , is God’s amazing grace. With his grace, and the blessings that he has given me, I will do a better job at showing his love to others.

Isn’t it amazing to know that he is with us always?

Matthew 28:20 King James Version 

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

I hope that this message leaves you feeling God’s love and amazing grace. I look forward to hearing from you.

    That is a truly amazing song, Christy, even for those people who aren’t particularly religious. To me, it speaks to the power of hope and that we always have a choice to turn our lives around no matter how fall we’ve fallen. ❤

    Amen..today my sister is having an open biopsy of a lymph node in lungs. She has a 1-1/2 year old boy. She, her husband and our parents are tensed and I’m telling them god is always with us and nothing to fear or worry. This article means a lot to me and I will share this video with her. Thanks a lot to write about god’s love and how much god cares for us all 🙂

    ” I know that I can do a better job at sharing God’s love with my daughter and with others as well.” Such a great “a-ha!” moment. We can always do better in that department. Thanks for a reminder to strive for more.

    Thankyou for this lovely post. I too feel blessed to be able to walk and see after having lost both function of my leg, and my sight due to MS. Now I appreciate every step I take and each beautiful thing I can see. I am a happier person now and filled with gratitude. 😉

    God bless you for raising your daughter in the Lord! I fully support that. It gives a foundation and a hope that will never leave her for the rest of her life. 👍
