Lead Us By Your Grace

October 3, 2010 Donna New

My niece and my new nephew were just married. They had a prayer sung that was so sweet her Aunt cried. It’s a Josh Groban/Charlotte Church song that one of my niece’s close friends sang. The prayer said something like “let us hold Your light, when stars come out at night, for times when shadows come.” and “Lead us to a place, guide us by Your grace, so that we’ll be safe.” and the part that touched this single girl’s heart “may every soul find someone to love.”

It was such a gentle prayer for their lives and for ours. They know that shadows will come but they’ll have His light and grace to keep them safe. And then they prayed that every soul would find the relationship that they have. They’re very happy and very caring. I would love to have their love.

The reception had she and her father, my brother, danced to My Father’s Eyes. I’m so happy she can say that about her father that she wants his eyes of compassion and she also wants her heavenly Father’s eyes.

Then the fun came on. Michael Jackson songs, the electric slide…they danced to everything and had a fantastic time. It was loud, there was much joy and so many funny things happening.

The wedding would please Jesus. But so would the reception. Jesus loved parties. He was always eating with some kind of party or crowd. Gentle, sweet songs and crazy joy like David had in the Bible are exactly what God likes to see.

As we left we took a favor with us. It had the address to a Scripture on it that we could look up when we got home. It was Psalm 33:22 which says “May Your faithful love rest on us, Lord, for we put our hope in You.” Lord, please answer their prayers for us and for them.
