Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Grace by Laura Story

I love this song by Laura Story! The words say it all for me.

Grace by Laura Story

My heart is so proud. My mind is so unfocused.
I see the things You do through me as great things I have done.
And now You gently break me, then lovingly You take me and hold me as my
Father and mold me as my maker.
I ask you: "How many times will you pick me up, when I keep on letting you down? And each time I fall short of Your glory, how far will forgiveness abound?"
And You answer: "My child, I love you. And as long as you're seeking my face, You'll walk in the power of my daily sufficient grace."
At times I may grow weak and feel a bit discouraged, knowing that someone, somewhere could do a better job. For who am I to serve You? I know I don't deserve you. And that's the part that burns in my heart and keeps me hanging on.
You are so patient with me Lord.
As I walk with You, I'm learning what your grace really means. The price that I could never pay was paid at Calvary. So, instead of trying to repay you, I'm learning to simply obey You buy giving up my life to you for all that You've given to me.

I'm simply walking in the power of His daily sufficient GRACE!
We're extending our stay in Chicago to try to get the testing for Spencer completed. He still hasn't had a seizure for them to do the scan. Today (Saturday) is our last shot. Please pray he will have a seizure today (not status but a small one) so they can complete the testing. Also pray for our trip home on Sunday.
Thanks! Hope you all have a blessed weekend.

He is a Healer & maybe you are in the midst of a MIRACLE for Spencer!Perhaps Laura Story knows your heart and wrote this just for you! I will continue to pray! Safe travels! May God be with you!

I will pray for Spencer. My niece Leah is in the hospital in NJ for testing right now because she has had another few seizures these past couple of weeks. She was diagnosed at around age 3 and is 6 now.
