Caught up in Grace

Like an Avalanche
by Hillsong United with Brooke Fraser

Beautiful God
Laying Your majesty aside
You reached out in love to show me life
Lifted from darkness into light

King for a slave
Trading Your righteousness for shame
Despite all my pride and foolish ways
Caught in Your infinite embrace

And I find myself here on my knees again
Caught up in grace like an avalanche
Nothing compares to this love love love
Burning in my heart

Saviour and Friend
Breathing Your life into my heart
Your word is the lamp unto my path
Forever I'm humbled by Your love

Take my life
Take all that I am
With all that I am I will love You
Take my heart
Take all that I have
Jesus how I adore You

And I find myself here on my knees again
Caught up in grace like an avalanche
Nothing compare to this love love love

Sometimes someone else puts into words and music what your heart is saying. My heart is saying all sorts of things right now. Or maybe I am just more tuned to it than usual.

I feel change happening. You've seen that it has happened physically but it's also happening in other ways. I can't put my finger on it yet but there's a shift - in my thinking, in my emotional stability, in my energy, in my focus. Maybe it's that I'm 29 and I'm finally 'settling down'... but it feels more like being stirred up than settling down. I don't know. And I'm ok with that. Really ok with not knowing. Even excited by it - so much can happen!

What I know is that this song speaks my heart. Christ has reached out in love and shown me Life. Amazing life that is mine when I'm on my knees in prayer, ready and willing to be swept away. I'm on my knees, caught up in Grace like an avalanche. It is sweeping me away to somewhere. Somewhere that I can't see right now so I'm pondering, talking to people and exploring but not worrying because nothing compares to the Love that is sweeping me along.

Come along with me.
