Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now am found, Was blind, but now I see...

Last night as I sat down to read the bible, after reading a few verses of the gospel of Luke, I reached my most favorite verse..."For nothing is impossible with God."(Luke 1:37)
But I couldn't read beyond that verse.My mind went down the memory lane and I could recollect all of the amazing things that have happened to me over the past one year.

I thought about how God had turned the impossible into reality....

I realized how I am no one without Him...

It took Him just one day to change my life!And He taught me to love people.He taught me to accept people as they are and not judge them.More than anything else, He taught me to forgive people.

He picked me up from the rut that I was into for years and brought me here, where life is so beautiful!

And as my mind was drifting through these sweet memories...the song Amazing grace popped up in my head.And the song really struck a chord with me....

"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun."


The song brought tears to my eyes and I couldn't thank God enough for what He has done for me and how much He loves me!

I remember that once a friend had told me about a word he had coined:P ....'G.L.I.P.'....God's Love Is Perfect!!
And although it was about a year ago that he told me this, its only in the past few months that I have come to believe how true this is!!

Nothing can beat His love!Nothing!
