that’s the miracle

I am not worthy – but You bid me come anyway

that’s the miracle

I am a sinner – but You died for me anyway

“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love for us (me) in this: While we were (I am) still sinners, Christ died for us (me).” (Romans 5:6-8)

Christ died for me, a sinner – that’s the miracle

I am not worthy – but You have adopted me

that’s the miracle

“Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God – children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.” (John 1:12-13)

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” (1 John 3:1)

I am an orphan – but You say I can call You Father, even Daddy!

“but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, ‘Abba, Father.’ The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.” (Romans 8:15-16)

that’s the miracle

I have nothing to wear but filthy rags – but You clothe me in clean garments

“I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For He has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness,” (Isaiah 61:10)

that’s the miracle

I have no worth – but You say that I matter to You

“For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead. Since you are precious and honored in My sight, and because I love you, I will give men in exchange for you, and people in exchange for your life.” (Isaiah 43:3-4)

that’s the miracle

I am not worthy – but You invite me in

“In My Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you also may be where I am.” (John 14:2-3)

“Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” (Psalm 23:6)

that’s the miracle

I am in dire need – and You rescue me every time

“I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.” (Psalm 40:1-3)

that’s the miracle

I was dead – but You brought me back to life

“When I was dead in my sins and in the uncircumcision of my sinful nature, God made me alive with Christ. He forgave me all my sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against me and that stood opposed to me; He took it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.” (Colossians 2:13-15)

“As for me, I was dead in my transgressions and sins, in which I used to live when I followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, . . . But because of Your great love for me, God, You who are rich in mercy, You made me alive with Christ even when I was dead in transgressions – it is by grace I have been saved.” (Ephesians 2:1-5)

that’s the miracle

it’s all a miracle – every bit of it – a miracle of God’s grace – a grace that turns sinners like me and like you into saints –

that’s the miracle

Jesus asked, “Why does this generation ask for a miraculous sign? I tell you the truth, no sign will be given to it.” (Mark 8:12)

the signs, the miracles have already been given to me and to you, dear readers – just as they were in Jesus’s day when He said,

“The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor.” (Matthew 11:5)

all miracles, each and every one –

I am not worthy – but You, Lord, love me anyway –

that’s the miracle

oh that you and I, dear readers would

“have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you and I may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:18-19)

sincerely, Grace Day
