Constrained

One of the minor reasons I started writing this blog 4 years ago was to force myself to attempt o become a better writer, and to be better able to express my self in writing.  I will let all of you judge the improvement!

I do realize however, that some people are just blessed with the ability to use simple words to capture great thoughts.  I was reminded of that last weekend when I was thinking about the lyrics to the classic hymn ‘Come Thou Fount’.  This one line from that great poem is I think often overlooked when the song is sung, but full of immense emotion and meaning

oh to grace how great a debtor, Daily I’m constrained to be.

I am always taken aback by this line and how wonderful a blessing the grace we have been freely given is and by how much of a debt we owe that sale grace!

6 As God’s partners, we beg you not to accept this marvelous gift of God’s kindness and then ignore it.  2 Corinthians 6:1New Living Translation (NLT)

It’s been freely given, and so you are free to give it!

10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.1 Peter 4:10 New International Version (NIV)

Jason, as always “well said”. I haven’t told you how much appreciate your posts each day. You have done a marvelous job and I look forward to “sneaking” a minute break from client work to read your posts. They always give me a little boost to get through my day!

Lisa, Thanks for your kind words. I am honored to be a part of your day. I hope my words keep you focused on and drawing closer to our Savior!
