amazing grace

She is an amazing gift of grace… so it cannot splinter her hopes or silence her courage. She holds within her love's unfathomable ability… so it will not cripple her into loving (even a wretch) conditionally. She is embraced in godly fellowship… so it shall not smother her spirit or corrode her faith.

Good Shepherd be with her as she tries to overcome the snares of this danger because 'tis only your grace, her fears, relieve.

So these were my thoughts and prayers as I spoke to my brother when he called today. Somehow I also kept hearing the words of the The Script… so I began ‘looking for those heroes in the sky’… that ‘teach us how to fly’… in order to beg them to reach down with their convalescent hands and mend her wings with just a touch.

Good Shepherd let your words been her constant lullaby despite the fact that at the moment ‘together we cry…’

So what is this all about?

My brother told me that Aunty Grace was in hospital, recovering from an operation. Confused, I asked why. It was to remove a lump in her chest.

Ali: It’s cancer.

I stayed silent… trying to choke back the tears as my heart broke uneven… but they started to spill gently down… pausing for a moment to caress my cheek… before hitting the ground.

I pray with you. She will be alright. Sometimes, certain things happen in our lives to us or loved ones, that makes our faith shake. but in all things and situations, we are to give thanks to God.
There is absolutely no situation which God cannot use to bring glory to Himself.


He is by her side. Dry ur tears darling.

Since they were able to operate and take out the lump, hopefully they caught it early and she'll be fine. Take it easy. It will be well.

His Grace is sufficient for Us all, He is with your Aunty, and that's all she needs.

News like this really shakes the spirit...but I pray that in your weakness (and your aunt's weakness), God will make His own strength perfect.

Let the tears fall...

Wonderful writing, really.

I'm confident of Gods healing power,the pain you feel is same as what He felt when He died knowing she would need healing today.Praying with you.
