Good Friday.

The adjective (Good) used with this noun (Friday) messes with my mind – Every. Single. Time.

Until I remind myself to see the adjective for Friday in the context of Sunday.

Then I shudder.

Amazing Grace.
Thank you, Lord.

A comment on Youtube by a certain Mark Talbot who apparently played with Mr. Zimmer:

I had the honor of playing in a band with Deano for 6 years and he blew my mind every day. After learning about his medical condition it seemed impossible to me that he could even play drums let alone shred on them. Dean is not only a great drummer, but a beautiful person and I consider myself incredibly lucky to have had him as a band mate and even luckier to have him as a friend. I love you man and as always…I’m proud of you!

 

Working on my church’s Easter production, I’ve had to get back into the scriptures and read the accounts of Jesus’ last week before his crucifixion.

Amazing Grace.

We say Amazing Grace. And yes, we mean it. But once we suppose that we truly understand Amazing Grace, we don’t.

What Amazing Grace is to me, it is not to you.

What Amazing Grace meant to me in the past pales in comparison to what it means to me now.

We increase in our understanding of Amazing Grace as we are sanctified.

But of this I am certain. Once we presume to fully understand Amazing Grace, we don’t.

And this one thing I’m convinced of. We will never truly understand the extent of His Amazing Grace this side of eternity.

So, Lord, tutor me and increase my understanding of your Love.

Your Amazing Grace.
