My Chains are Gone!!

We were singing this song in church this morning and I thought I'd share the words that hit home with me this time.
Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)

Louie Giglio, Chris Tomlin, John Newton, Edwin O. Excell, John P. Rees

My chains are gone, I've been set free.
My God, my Savior has ransomed me!
And like a flood, His mercy reigns.
Unending love, amazing grace

My chains are gone! I can't even imagine living life with the old chains of sin and bondage.
I've been set free Not...I am free, but I've been set free!! (Someone else did it for me!)
My God, my Savior has ransomed me!!!!!! He proactively paid a price to rescue me!
And like a flood, his mercy reigns. The only reason He hasn't wiped me off this Earth is because of His mercy. He hangs in there with me while my prideful, unfaithful, selfish person rises to the surface every day. What else but a flood of mercy could cover that?
Unending love He'll love me forever, just because He says He will, not because I'm worth it.
Amazing grace Amazing grace.

I'm gonna rest in that all week...

Here's a video if you've not heard this song.

We sing this song almost every day at home in our devotion time and I never even knew this verse existed!

But yes thank God for His Amazing Grace! I too have been set free-the chains that once bound me are broken and I am so thankful. I am so amazed. It is like another person lived in my body before me!
