EMMDEV 2014-06-13 [Random Musings] Never saw You coming!

Apologies for the late arrival of yesterday's dev - I sent it in the morning, but it seemed to have been caught in a logjam somewhere.
-------------------------------
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
34 "Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?"
35 "Who has ever given to God,
that God should repay him?"
36 For from him and through him and to him are all things.
To him be the glory forever! Amen. Romans11:33-36

God loves us and saves us by giving us His very best: His Son AND His Spirit. What an incredible, amazing and wonderful thing!

The incredible thing is that we could never imagine that God could or would be SO good to us.

In response to this goodness:
Paul wrote about the depth of the riches of the wisdom of God.
John Newton wrote "Amazing Grace"
Isaac Watts wrote "When I survey"
Charles Wesley wrote "And can it be that I should gain"
And more recently a gospel singer by the name of Bebo Norman wrote "Never saw you coming" when he was caught unexpectedly by the BIG and wonderful love of God.


NEVER SAW YOU COMING
Bebo Norman

I am the lonely, the ones who slip away
I am the secret, the words we dare not say
I am the promise I'm about to break again
I am the leader who cannot find the way
I am the preacher who somehow lost the faith
I am the beggar reaching out my hands again

And I never saw you coming
I could never dream of running
I have never known such love before my God
You come, come and breathe Your breath in me
Steal away what's left of me
'Til You are mine and I am Yours

I am the lover with no one to hold
I am the seeker with an empty soul
I'm everyone who's ever lost hope

And I never saw you coming
I could never dream of running
I have never known such love before my God
You come, come and breathe Your breath in me
Steal away what's left of me
'Til You are mine and I am Yours

Fall like stars on my shore
Still you are so much more

And I never saw you coming
I could never dream of running
I have never known such love before my God
You come, come and breathe Your breath in me
Steal away what's left of me
'Til You are mine and I am Yours
I am Yours
