Marvelous Light – TSMSS

then_sings_my_soul

with Amy @ Signs, Miracles, and Wonders

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
VICTORIOUSLY!

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
Marvelous light

Blessings Karen... and what a wonderful progression you have led us in to His Marvelous Light!!!

I noticed this as I scrolled through your beautiful posts once again this week and that is the JOURNEY that I saw and found through you, your faithful encouragement and words of compassion & understanding always.

A victorious praise song of freedom, indeed! Can you see me dancing & enjoying this, tambourine and all?

I'm so thankful for the freedom we have in Christ, from His mercy seat to HOPE in Him to running FREE!
WOO HOO...or hallelujah anyhow!

This is priceless:
"...the Spirit draws us to the Lord’s mercy seat...where shame, regrets, and brokenness are exchanged for love, forgiveness, and restoration..."
Thank you...with a big hug!

Some mornings I need to borrow the light of another to light my lamp. This song is wonderful for waking and rousing my sleepy soul.

I am so grateful to find and to follow Christian bloggers. Your testimony encourages me and that I can be sure of and trust the Source from where you draw your inspiration. Thank you for linking in to the 'Then Sings My Soul' blog hop. I'm glad I stopped by.
