Have you ever received anything that you couldn't possibly afford? My friends gave
me a stereo that I didn't expect to get out of my wildest imagination. This got me
to thinking about God's Grace that's much more than anything that we could ever receive.
O Lord, let me meditate upon Your Grace.
For surely I don't deserve this gift of grace.
Cause me to remember
How precious Your love is for me!
Some of my friends
Gave me an expensive stereo for Christmas.
I was shocked when they surprised me with it;
I saw it in a store one day,
But it was way out of my price range
And it was on too expensive, I thought,
For anybody to give it as a gift.
So I forgot completely about it
And dismissed it as a dream
Of ever having one like this.
When my friends gave me their gift of the stereo,
I was not only surprised but shocked
That they loved me so much that they would gave me
Something I considered a dream.
To receive such a gift,
I felt unworthy
And at first I didn't know how to receive their love.
But I finally was able to receive it
When I humbled myself,
Knowing well that I could never repay them
Nor expected to.
Lord, through this experience,
I want to learn two things
In my walk
My joy in Your Salvation for me
And the awe of eternal life in Your Presence
As well as the thrill of knowing You for my Lord
Are much greater than suddenly inheriting
All the treasures in the world!
Never allow me to take the attitude
That I deserve such blessings
You're showering me with.
For I am unworthy
But through Your Love for me
You made me not only worthy but righteous
To inherit Your Precious Kingdom!
O Lord, Let Me Meditate Upon Your Grace
