In 2Timothy 1:9, God's Word reads "For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was His plan from before the beginning of time; to show us His grace through Christ Jesus.
Wow!!! Every morning that I wake up, I celebrate this fact; that God is the one and only true example of what love is and what love does. I am so thankful.
I am blessed to serve a God who is so unselfish that even before He made man, He knew we would fall. God had a plan of love in place from the beginning. As a parent, I get a molecule of an understanding as it relates to this.
Many people may not be aware of the statement I am about to make; children (and parents) are not perfect! We are all born flawed in our nature and yet, as parents we love our children. We desperately want to understand them just to be able to give them our best to inspire them towards their best.
Well, that is what the Lord decided to do before He created any of us. He decided to give us His best so that our best could be achieved. He spared no expense when he gave us life through the sacrifice of His son Christ Jesus. Because of this, we should always show our love and gratitude to our Savior who we can never repay.
I can't explain this album without first explaining something of the love and sacrifice God made through Christ Jesus. He is the beginning and center of it all. I am always praying for His direction; seeking His guidance; and working to always stand in His Sacrifice.
I am excited to give my complete surrender to a God that loved me so much, all of us so much that He went ahead and created us with the knowledge and understanding that we would fail. Then God made for us, a provision; a gift of mercy and grace. That gift of grace, if we accept it, allows us to one day stand in His glory and live with Him forever.
My life is not about me; it's about serving the one true living God, and encouraging others to do the same. So I will sing to the Lord as long as I live. I will prasie my God to my last breath! This is the inspiration and sentiment behind this collection of songs. I hope you enjoy it.
