In my quest to find something for BLOGMAS, that is either motivational, inspirational, that lights up the fire in the belly for self transformation , I found Amazing Grace Song – which we have all heard before.
I have never thought or contemplated on the words and what they mean to me. But, I do today in this post. In my search and quest to be a better person. Also, in my mindful state that thoughts create my happiness or sadness. The power is within me to change, to accept, and when I walk with the helping hand of God then I can be happy and of good character more often – even 100% of the time?
We are One Godly Family
I believe we are all one Godly family and colour is just Biology. God’s grace sent messengers. Those messengers then created religions to bring us back on the path of divinity, that which is right and back in connection with God. Back to awareness all humans are my brothers and sisters and we are one worldly family. We are all Gods children each one of us and colour is just Biology. God doesn’t make us to do evil to one another or to ourselves. It is I who choose to be unkind, my father can not be blamed if I choose not to listen.
We are one Godly family and I feel that Christmas brings that feeling to me even more. Today, I share a modern version of the song Amazing Grace below, and I share the Lyrics of the original version.
What Do I Love about this Song
I love the entire song. However, I love the chorus in particular ” I once was lost but now am found, Was blind but Now I See” And of course “Amazing Grace – How Sweet the sound”. Such a powerful chorus – once lost and now found – this makes me feel oh my, I feel that I have found God especially when I meditate. Or rather God found me! Imagine the magic of The GRACE of GOD in your life. ” – Grace – How sweet you are”!
Through my meditation I the Soul connect to the divine soul (God). God’s Grace saves us, heals us, shows the correct path . That is ,” taught my heart to fear“; now I don’t believe God our father teaches fear – but he highlights what is not good for us and explains why it is important to stay on the right path, therefore “Grace my fears relieved“.
“How Precious did that grace appear – the Hour I first Believed“:- what an awakening we have when we first recognise and accept God. How PRECIOUS, how Sacred! I believe that is a feeling I should have for God each and every day, each and every time I connect to him in meditation and in the normal day to day actions.
As we take God Graceful guidance, I am no longer a wretch, I have no fears, for he guides my boat. I the Soul practice to be divine, to be good, to have good wishes for all, to have good character and not to ‘Hate’ or have any negative qualities for they make me a wretch. That negativity is not befitting of us -the Children of God! If I am now found, and now I see – then I have a responsibility not to become blind again, not to let go of God’s hand -for when I let go of his hand then I lose his help. For God is God, he is no earthly being- if I let go of him, he can’t help me.
Enjoy the modern version of the song. I have also extracted the original versions of the lyrics below this you tube clip.
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind but now I see
‘Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
‘Tis Grace has brought me safe thus far
And Grace will lead me home
The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures
Yet, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun
