YOU HAVE GRANTED A REPRIEVE FOR ALL HUMANITY -

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

WRITTEN BY S.C.MITCHELL

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

O LORD - I realise that I could never stand and
Look You in the face - whilst that first Adam's sin holds
Me within its unclean grip of merciless disgrace - but - You
Have granted a reprieve for all humanity - if we so choose Your
Second Adam's sinless blood - and His forgiveness - mercy -
Purity - and love - to wash us clean - and give us hope -
We've neither earned - nor yet deserved -
Nor seen .

Who else can take away the stain of guilt and sin - and
Cleanse our hearts of all its wickedness and festering within ? but
Only You - dear LORD - who knows the fearful price of what salvation
Wrought - upon the gnarled beam - a heavy price - that Your shed
Blood has bought - my soul to pardon and redeem - to wash
Away the dreadful stain - and make me
Clean .

Now Christ's own blood - is flowing through my veins -
And cleanses me from all my past distains - and now the
Face of God can be revealed to me - in truth - He is no longer
Hanging on that cursed tree - but living in my spirit - full and free - as
My Eternal Saviour - Friend - and part of His own family - such
Sacred love - that God - who knows each star by name -
Should care for such a one as me - and say - I am
His own.

And now - what joy - I am no longer cast off nor alone -
As God Himself has pardoned me - and calls me as His child -
His very own - such wondrous love - as only those who know the
True acceptance of the One - whose hands can span the Heavens and the galaxies -
Yet knows each sparrow when it falls - and in His Love and Majesty - He still considers
Such as you and me - and calls us friend - and His own Treasure - for infinity -
Time without end - with Him who fills all things - as LORD of lords -
And KING of kings - so I for one - can truly say -
All things are well - within
My soul today.

I don't know what anyone who is reading this is going through right now,
but I want to encourage you in the truth , that Jesus knows exactly
what you may be struggling with , or working through , and He
wants you to know that you are not alone if you put your faith
and trust in Him. 

He is with us in the good times as well as the difficult times ,
and He will help you , strengthen you and bring you
through to the glory of His lovely name .

So , I pray that you too will be able to say with me ,
It is well with my soul
today.

Be very blessed

With His love
Stella ><
