PRAISE!

All praise, glory, and honor to You, Father! The things You have done and are doing and will do are awesome and amazing! On a universal scale they are absolutely astounding and on my personal level, they are utterly inspiring and humbling.

I have posted a portion of this favorite hymn before (Such Love! – 01/25/16) but it comes to mind again. Last time it was the chorus, here’s the first verse.

That God should love a sinner such as I,
Should yearn to change my sorrow into bliss,
Nor rest till he had planned to bring me nigh –
How wonderful is love like this!                         – C. Bishop, 1929

Lord, I cannot believe that I will ever cease to be amazed at Your wonderful love for me. There is a no more perfect example of love in all that exists! It is surely not deserved but it is so freely given. You are scorned, rejected, ignored, and disrespected but the outpouring of Your love upon the good and the bad, upon the righteous and the unrighteous is unending!

  O for a thousand tongues to sing
  My great Redeemers praise…                – Charles Wesley, 1739

Even these lyrics, though generous would be inept at communicating how I feel about all the many ways that Your love has impacted and continues to impact my life. All praise, glory, and honor to You, Lord, my Savior, and Redeemer! Amen and Amen!
