"Thought for the day
« on: November 07, 2010, 02:28:52 pm »
Most people have heard the song/hymn "Amazing Grace"  It was the third verse that made me think of my (and a lot of others) struggles to get to NZ.
"Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
"Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home"

 :clap:  You have no idea how applicable this is to us right now.  It seems that every door we have ever prayed for has opened for us.  We now know more than ever that we are on the path that God has planned for us.  "Thy will be done".  It's in His hands now.
