Have you ever tried to change something for something better ...well ... when God does it He goes way beyond all we could ever ask for ....

Our Sickness For Your Healing




Lord - I thank You for Your Amazing Exchanges ....

Our sins - for Your Righteousness -

Our sorrows - for Your Joy -

Our sickness - for Your Healing -

Our misery and woe - for all the gifts of Happiness - and

Blessings - that You so generously bestow - for every

Man and woman - girl and boy .

Your Peace In The Midst Of Turmoil




Your Strength for all our weakness -

Your Kindness - for our spite -

Your Peace in the midst of turmoil - and

Our wrongs - for Your Perfect Right -

Our poverty - for Your Plenty -

Our evil - for Your Good -

Your Understanding and Compassion - when

We are misunderstood .

Your Calm In Times Of Stress



Your Help - in times of trouble -

Your life - in place of death -

Your Hope - in times of hopelessness -

Your Calm - in times of stress -

Your Rest when we are weary -

Your Love instead of hate -

Your Beauty - for our ugliness -

Our transgressions - for Your Grace -

Your Glory For Our Shameful Rags



Your Plenty - for our barrenness -

Your Peace - instead of strife -

Your Glory - for my shameful rags -

Our death - for Your Eternal Life ......

And so I could go on and on ...... Because .....

I know that there are many more things - that I could mention - it

Is true - but the greatest thing I thank You for - is Your Exchange of

My life for Yours - and for making me

Brand New .

God's Riches At Christ's Expense




I was the one who should be punished - who deserved

The nails and the cross - I was the one who should have

suffered death and Hell - and Eternal loss - but -

I am eternally thankful - for You took the punishment for me -

And one day - I will look into Your lovely face - knowing that -

Your Great Exchange - has truly set me free.

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

Now that's what I call ......

Amazing Grace - God's Riches At Christ's Expense.

Paid in Full ...

Who could ask for more ?..

What an exchange !

With God's love from

Stella ><

Your poetry flows so beautifully Stella, God's gift to you, to keep him always in our hearts and minds.
So calming and uplifting and there when we need it.
We lost Mutley our dog on Friday, had him for ten years.
We've been so upset Stella, and reading this has given me comfort.
Thank you my dear friend

We need to be grateful for every ray of sunshine, rain drop, morsel of food and love we are showered with. Let us eschew the entitlement mentality and embrace humility. Deep faith so eloquently expressed dear Stella - siva

Thank you my dear friend . If we got what we were entitled to we would be in for a big shock my wise friend . Thankfully the Good Lord was willing to give us what we don't deserve , nor could ever afford . I for one am eternally grateful for that.
Many blessings to you and your family dear Siva .

Truly a poem in thankfulness for the One who came to do what we cannot do. Much is beyond our ability.
