Through Many Dangers Toils And Snares…
There are those who do not believe that John Newton, who wrote Amazing Grace, actually wrote the portion stated above in the title of this month's blog, but what an impactful statement. The older I get, the more I realize the truth of this stanza. So, it is not important who wrote it; it's important what it implies.
The Christian journey is filled with downs and disappointments. But it's the last part of the verse that ensures us of God's wonderful grace. Because we have "already come" through many toils and snares, we can be confident that God's grace will carry us through the ones we are currently facing. In spite of the challenging events of last week, I know that it's only for a season. It's been rough, but My God is Greater in me.
