Mercy – Hope – Freedom
This week’s posts have been a progression of sorts...
First, the Spirit draws us to the Lord’s mercy seat...where shame, regrets, and brokenness are exchanged for love, forgiveness, and restoration...
Then, our heavenly Father immerses us into rivers of everlasting hope that fill us with that blessed assurance of His constant presence in our lives...
Which brings us to the freedom we have in Christ...no more chains...no more death...
He beckons us to run to Him...
into the Marvelous Light of His glory...
I once was fatherless,
a stranger with no hope;
Your kindness wakened me,
Awakened me, from my sleep
Your love it beckons deeply,
a call to come and die.
By grace now I will come
And take this life, take your life.
Sin has lost it's power,
death has lost it's sting.
From the grave You've risen
Into marvelous light I'm running,
Out of darkness, out of shame.
By the cross You are the truth,
You are the life, You are the way
My dead heart now is beating,
My deepest stains now clean.
Your breath fills up my lungs.
Now I'm free. Now I'm free!
Lift my hands and spin around,
See the light that I have found.
Oh the marvelous light
