Forever Grateful


At the top of my list of blessings is my salvation and the Cross.

We sang a new song last night at church . . . a beautiful one that focused
on our Thanksgiving/blessings theme.
Thought I'd share the words with you.

You did not wait for me to draw near to You,
But You clothed Yourself with frail humanity;
You did not wait for me to cry out to You,
But You let me hear Your voice calling me.

And I'm forever grateful to You;
I'm forever grateful for the cross.
I'm forever grateful to You,
That You came to seek and save the lost.
~Lyrics to I'm Forever Grateful by Mark Altrogge~

I'm not familiar with that song but the lyrics are pretty. I guess we need to learn a new song now and then! Thank you, Jesus, for the cross!

Beautiful lyrics. So often we think it is us that initiate the relationship. It is him, always reaching, always waiting, always loving. Thank you.
