“I’m Amazed” – Musical Musings in March

There are some things in this world that amaze me. Like the fact that we had warm temperatures yesterday…in the 50’s. Then a storm from blew through and overnight we received an inch of snow! At least it’s not the foot or two they are getting in the mountains.


IMAG1492I’m amazed at technology. The things that someone thought to try (and in some cases tried over and over until they got it right). We’ve come a long way just in my lifetime. From typewriters to computers. From film cameras to digital phone cameras. From filmstrips to DVD’s. From record players to iPods.


I’m amazed that we’ve been able to send men and women into space. Some have walked on the moon. We even have a roaming robot on Mars!


God’s creation always amazes me. The beauty of nature. The unique features of our world. The abilities and instincts of the animal kingdom. The amazing inner workings of the human body.


I’m amazed at the kindness of people. My heart is touched when I see goodness. I find deep joy when compassion is shared between individuals.


But most of all, I’m amazed at what God has done for mankind. For me. He has redeemed me through His Son. When I was most unredeemable, God amazed me.


Yes, God’s love, mercy, compassion, and grace amaze me every day. I pray that I never take any of these for granted.


I heard today’s tune on the radio last week. I loved the grandiose of the arrangement, the richness of the soloist’s voice, and the hundreds of voices that backed up that beautiful voice. But most of all, I was captured by the song’s lyrics.


I recalled feeling alone and empty. I recalled the times I chose to wander and go astray. I recalled living a life of weakness. And then I recalled how amazing it is to live in God’s love. Yes friend, it is amazing!


Maybe this is a song for you. Take a look at what you can find through God’s amazing love and grace. Then reach out to Him. And you too will be amazed at what He will do for you.


“I’m Amazed”


No one knew how alone I was feeling,

And the emptiness I tried so hard to hide.

Though I laughed and said my life was fine without You,

I was covering up the secret tears I had cried.


Then one day someone told me of Your mercy,

And the love you have shown on a hill call Calvary.

There You died and purchased my redemption,

When You broke sins power and set my spirit free.



I’m amazed that You love me,

I’m amazed how You care.

Through Your precious blood I found pardon.

And my sins are washed, they’re all washed away.

All my sins are washed away.


Yes it’s true, there’s been days when I’ve failed You.

Lord you know the many times I’ve gone astray.

But I’ve learned Your love is stronger than my weakness,

And Your ear is open every time I pray.


No one else has ever cared for me like You Lord,

Other friends could never be as close to me.

I’m not afraid to face the problems of tomorrow,

Knowing You are everything I’ll ever need.[i]

Life is too short to wander this earth with unamazed eyes, ears and hearts. Take a look around you. Find something to be amazed at today. And please be sure to thank God for His amazing gift…abundant life!


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
