AWESOME GOD

AWESOME  GOD

 

 

 

I have never seen in all my life

A heart as beautiful as the heart of God.

 

Who forgives all my sins

And cancels thousands of my trangressions

And keeps no record of them.

 

He washes me as white as snow

And  gives me a new beginning

And restores my hope to live a better life.

 

His mercy for me endures forever

His mercy for me is always fresh

Every birth of a new day.

 

In His hands, I am safe and secure

He never takes off His eyes away from me

He upholds me by His righteous hands.

 

Though I had been His great enemy before

A great transgressor of His law

He never treated me as my sins deserve

Instead He reserves His wonderful plan for me.

 

Though my life had been so ugly and despicable

The moment He took over

He turned my life into beauty

And made it a channel of blessings.

 

My once ugly life

Was transformed into beauty

By His righteous hands.

Once an instrument of wickedness

Now a channel of His grace.

 

If God’s mercy had not arrived in my life,

How miserable my life could have been

Living in the world had always been so despicable.

 

But now I am rejoicing

Because of God’s great love

I could look forward to a great future with Him.

For He bestowed on me

The marvelous gift of eternal life.

 

Living a life apart from God

This is the most miserable life

For life will be beautiful only

When it is lived for God’s glory.

 

This once despicable life,

Has now become so glorious

Because there existed one marvelous person

The great and awesome God.

I too am very thankful that He does not treat us as our sins deserve. When I am thankful enough, maybe I can extend the favor to others. =:)

Thank you for the devotional words.
