Yesterday evening I was coming back from work in the bart when a note stuck at the back of the seat right in front of me caught my attention. It said “Amazing Grace.” My heart was immediately filled with love for I have been listening to this verse from the last 3-4 days. I pulled it out and exclaimed with joy “What is this?” My friend who was traveling with me said, “Oh, people leave their stuff in the train all the time. Its nothing.” I smiled and replied, “No, its a message for me. I am saving it.” I gazed at it for a while in amazement and then kept it in my bag. I came back home and got busy with my family and then forgot all about the note in my bag and slept. This morning I woke up and unfolded the note. Oh what Grace, when I read the beautiful message inside. Read:
I know everything about you. I know when you sit down and when you rise up. I am familiar with all your ways. Even the hair on your head are numbered. I chose you when I planned creation and loved you before you were born . I watched over you as I was putting you together in your mother’s womb and said “You are good.” You are marvelously and wonderfully made in my image. You are my cherished creation. You are not a mistake or accident, for all your days are written in my book.
I am the complete expression of love and its my desire to lavish my love on you because you are my child. I am the perfect Lord and every good gift you receive from me is perfect. I am your provider and I meet all your needs. My plan for your future has been and will always be filled with hope. My thoughts towards you are always good and are countless as the sand on the seashore.
Every day I will love you and rejoice over you with singing. Every day I will never stop doing good to you. Every day I will keep blessing your life. For you are my treasured possession. I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine. For I am your greatest encourager. The Lord who comforts you in times of trouble. The Hand that lifts you when you are down. The Healer who restores the brokenhearted. The Good Shepherd who carries a lonely lamb close to his heart. The All-Sufficient-One who wipes away every tear from your eyes and every pain from your life.
I am the one who loves you. I am not counting on your sins. I gave up everything I loved so that I might gain your love. All of the heaven is rejoicing over you. I’ll throw the biggest party for you in heaven that no eye has ever seen or ear ever heard or mind ever imagined, and nothing will separate you from my love again.
P.S. Therefore with joy shall you draw water (of love) out of the wells of salvation.
As I read the note, my heart said “What magic!” Thank you God!
Share your story of magic with me and I will post it on my blog.
