Worship Wednesday – Grace Flows Down

Worship WednesdayGod doesn’t like for us to get too comfortable. When we start to get into a “norm” is when He seems to hand us the biggest changes. And I’m grateful for that; it reminds me that God is not only present, but in charge, orchestrating my life for the best. Sometimes the surprises are full of joy, and others are full of pain. Some leave you reeling, not sure how to name the emotion that swirls inside of you.

Unfortunately, particularly during these changes, it’s easy to hear anxiety more than we hear His grace. The world can tell us we don’t add up to its standards, and that can be a source of anxiety. Even worse, however, can be when our minds tell us we’re not good enough. My OCD tendencies like to try and make me believe I’m not up to the challenge, and that I’m too sinful to do things the right way.

Well, you know what? They’re right. I’m not good enough on my own. I’m not able to perfectly carry out my roles in this world. But on this train of thought, it’s easy to lose track of the real reason God puts changes into our lives. Rather, those changes God puts into my life that jar me out of my daily schedule point me back to Him. They remind me of who my Father is, and to Whom I must run to find a perfect, adoring love.

On my own, I don’t deserve God’s grace. I don’t deserve the good things in life. But because God chose to love me, I can bask in His goodness, and I can know that I’m not only forgiven, but adored. And God isn’t stingy with His grace. Rather, we’re the ones who are too hesitant to ask for it. Why I forget this, I’m not sure, but I’m grateful God’s grace will never run dry.

Grace Flows Down

Amazing Grace
How sweet the sound
Amazing Love
Now flowing down
From hands and feet
That were nailed to the tree
As Grace flows down and covers me

It covers me
It covers me
It covers me
And covers me

The price Christ paid for my sins is something I will never be able to comprehend, but the more I live, the more I realize that it never runs dry. My anxiety over sins and mistakes tries to gnaw at me, my OCD telling me I’m never good enough, that I don’t do life well enough. And I don’t.

But with God’s grace, I have a Savior who was perfect for me. What I need now, is to learn how to bask in His grace and goodness.

Hebrews 4-16
