AMAZING 


I looked up the definition of the word amazing and
 here are a few of the descriptive terms associated with this word:

causing great surprise or wonder;
astonishing; startlingly impressive;
so remarkable as to elicit disbelief;
remarkably or impressively great in extent, size, or degree;
astounding; fabulous; fantastic; incredible;
marvelous; miraculous; phenomenal;
 stupendous; wonderful; wondrous

So many meanings to this word and they all describe, in part, our God.
There are not enough words in the dictionaries, thesaurus, or all the
books in all the libraries in the world to truly describe our God.

When John Newton wrote “Amazing Grace” he described a
portion of God’s personality that He extends to us, His grace.

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

This song written in 1772 is still probably the best loved of all hymns.


But there is a song that is sung by the Triumphant Quartet that too
expresses how “amazing” our God is and is a favorite of mine.


Amazing God
By The Triumphant Quartet

You want to hear the story of how I made it through,
When life was full of trouble, pain and fear
The answer may sound simple, though everything else crumbles
One thing has remained through all these years

Chorus
I still serve an amazing God,
He's been with me every mile, my weary feet have trod
He still cares, He still hears,
He's still mending broken hearts and drying tears
This old world is bound to change,
but I'm glad I know the One who always stays the same
And my song will ever be amazing God,
You're still amazing me.

The God who parted waters still makes a way today
He's always brought me through the troubled sea.
The One who fed the thousands, Whose word can calm the tempest
He's my Bread of Life and He's my peace.


I am so very glad that God never changes.  
He is ever waiting to hear our cry.
And He still amazes me!


I would like to share a few of the cards I have recently made:
