Sabbath Rest – What Grace is Mine

We went to church this morning. Let me say that again – we went INTO a church this morning! For the first time since mid-March. With masks and every other pew and toothpicks in the communion bread – it was soul feeding, heart refreshing, jubilation! While we have been thankful to be able to worship at McLean Bible Church in Washington, DC thanks to the miracle of live streaming, being able to lift our voices with other believers (whom we are also blessed to call friends) and partake in communion (even with paper cups and toothpicks) was a huge blessing.  Huge.  May we never take for granted the gathering together of the faithful.

We sang this song this morning. Not quite like Kristyn Getty does, but it still stirred my soul! May you be blessed also!


What grace is mine
That He who dwells in endless light
Called through the night
To find my distant soul
And from His scars
Poured mercy that would plead for me
That I might live, and in His name be known
So I will go wherever He is calling me
I lose my life to find my life in Him
I give my all to gain the hope that never dies
I bow my heart, take up my cross and follow Him

What grace is mine
To know His breath alive in me
Beneath His wings
My waking soul may soar
All fear can flee for death’s dark night is overcome
My Savior lives and reigns forever more
So I will go wherever He is calling me
I lose my life to find my life in Him
I give my all to gain a hope that never dies
I bow my heart, take up my cross and follow Him
I bow my heart, take up my cross and follow Him

  1. Yes, it was great to get back to church this week. Our church had a live service on Thursday night and it was so good to be able to sing as loud as I wanted. Hopefully didn’t sound to bad! but to raise our voices together in praise and worship was awesome. It was a party! we had to wear little stickers on our shirts. Green was OK for social contact, yellow was cautious, and red was keep your distance. But it felt so good. We still won’t have Sunday services until the end of August but for now, Thursday’s as good as any other day! Praise God!

  2. Thanks for putting this in it brought tears to my eyes for two reasons. One is obvious the other is a memory of my father singing a song with the same tune that he sang to my baby brother many years ago!
