Church this morning was peaceful, Ds2 was very well behaved and instead of focusing on the service my mind wondered – brought back to reality by our choir singing In Christ alone – a beautiful song and really says everything for me . Tonight I was at church again as I had been asked to read MARK 14:32-50
And the choir sang it again .
Bearing in mind that last week end I was at my cousins wedding and we sang it , i really feel I am being constantly reminded of God love anf forgiveness

Copyright © 2001 Kingsway Thankyou MusicIn Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow’r of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand.
“No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;” No matter what I am going through at the moment , the stress and pain , I know I am being held tightly and that is such comfort
