I Stand Amazed

There’s a great old hymn with the phrase: “I stand amazed in the presence of Jesus the Nazarene”.  There are many times I wonder how He could love me, but I fully accept His love, grace and forgiveness.  But I’ve been standing amazed in Jesus presence over the past two weeks at Grace Fellowship not just because of what He’s done for me, but for what He’s doing in the lives of people around us.  God is doing so many things in our midst and the greatest thing for me – the thing that turns my crank – is that 31 people (adults & students) that we know of have chosen to become followers of Christ in the past two weeks.  I’m still in awe of being blessed to be a part of such an incredible church; what a privilege to serve Jesus during this time at this place.  I stand full of thanks.  I stand amazed.
