God's Amazing Forgiveness

I know God forgave much when He forgave me! I am so glad He loves His children like that.
This hymn below says it so well:

Depth of mercy! Can there be
Mercy still reserved for me?
Can my God His wrath forbear,
Me, the chief of sinners, spare?

I have spilt His precious blood,
Trampled on the Son of God,
Filled with pangs unspeakable,
I, who yet am not in hell!

Whence to me this waste of love?
Ask my Advocate above!
See the cause in Jesus’ face,
Now before the throne of grace.

There for me the Savior stands,
Shows His wounds and spreads His hands.
God is love! I know, I feel;
Jesus weeps and loves me still.

Now incline me to repent,
Let me now my sins lament,
Now my foul revolt deplore,
Weep, believe, and sin no more.

- Charles Wesley (1740)

Hey MR, thanks for your words of encouragement. I had a huge relapse a week ago and it is just now that I'm truly allowing God to move. Loved the hymn you posted. Take care, Dave.
