How Great is Our God



I was driving home from doing some shopping on base. I had my 3 children with me. My two little ones asleep in the back seat and my 9 year old riding along side me up front. We were listening to the radio. Serius XM The Message. A Christian station for those who don't know the station. After a song the dj comes on and he says "we hear these songs so often, we know all the words but after a time we get to the point where we don't really hear the words." He goes on to say, "now sit back and just listen, don't sing along just listen to the words." He plays Chris Tomlin's How Great is Our God. I have so much to praise God for. My husband, my happy home, my wonderful children, but most of all, Christ dying on the cross. I had lived a sinful life for so long. I had no idea such Grace existed. Imagine having such love that you would give your life to save the lives of your children. I would do it in a minute for my children. I don't deserve all that I have been given. It is by the grace of God that I have a new life. I have the security in knowing my destination after my body no longer walks this earth.

A friend of mine were talking on the phone the other day and the end times came up. Do I believe we are living it. Yes. I believe we have been for a long time. Do the things happening in other parts of the world frighten me. No. I know that the Lord will come and take his church home before anything happens to this earth.

Amen to that my dear!! I also believe we are living in the Latter days and the disasters around the world are all part of it and if you are prepared there's no need to be afraid.

Christ will come, perhaps sooner than we think.

Hi. New here. Love the music. I am over 40 hopping and hoping to be over 400 on the CSN Bathroom Voting Contest.
Ask someone to Vote and Validate the email, please. It only takes a few seconds and doesn't cost anything to help. It's for a much needed bathroom repair/makeover.
