I stand amazed

The last couple of weeks God has just totally blown me away, he daily reveals to me he on going love and reveals through his Holy Spirit, his plans for my life.
I am more and more excited about what God is going to do in Ilkley and what he has planned for his church.
I am as it says in the hymn standing amazed in the presence

I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean.

O how marvelous! O how wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
O how marvelous! O how wonderful!
Is my Savior's love for me!

He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calvary,
And suffered and died alone.

When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see,
’Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of His love for me.

For a while i was really lost in the darkness and did not know how i was going to get through it all, but God did.
He took all my sins and sorrows and he suffered and died for me, his grace is never ending and his love never fails, and he never let me go.
Wow i really do stand amazed, at what God has given to me and what he has done and how he has brought me to this place in my ministry, to see hundreds of kids saved and brought into that same presence, the presence of a mighty king. King Jesus who can and will meet all their needs and heal all their hurts.
