First Fully Written Awesome Good Morning Devotional - 2009

Good Morning! The Lord woke me up with a song this morning like He does many mornings but this one I know I was to share…it’s called “Still Calls me Son”. I heard it a day or two ago and it had some impact then, but not like this morning. To explain: My mother was moved back to a different assisted living facility yesterday. I spent 6 hours with her getting her packed and ready to move and then moving her. It was a long, hard day and I was tired to the point of tears but I feel a certain sense of devotion to my mother. I put her through so very much when I was growing up. She prayed me through years and years of accidents some of which you could tell should have been of certain death! I don’t know how to thank God enough for her and what she did for me and yet some of us tend to ignore God when look at how we’ve gone against and even run from Him. He is our Father and has loved us with an *un-waning love. What all have we done to Him, put Him through, persecuted Him with, run from Him for, and on and on? Yet He still calls us son/daughter!

Still Calls Me Son
by John Waller

I drug his name through godless places
And I’ve known shame that no child of his should know
I’ve seen pain on broken faces
Beyond all thought of hope
I was just too far from home
Still I always wondered when I closed my eyes

After all I’ve done
Could he run to me?
Would he kiss my face?
Could he even look at me?
After where I’ve been
should he take me back?
I would understand
I’ve disgraced him
But it would be amazing
If he still calls me son

With nothing left for me to bring him
I left my pride and turned my heart toward home
I saw my home on the horizon
And from a distance
I saw my Father
Watching for his own with forgiving eyes

After all I’d done
He just ran to me
Then he kissed my face
He would not let go of me
After where I’d been
He just welcomed me
I didn’t understand
But he put his robe on me
It was so amazing
That he still called me son

One day as I breathe my last
And I know my days on earth have ended
When every hour is spent
I will close my eyes in amazement
And I’ll hear angels
They’ll be singing

Amazing Grace
Cause he will run to me
And he will kiss my face
He will not let go of me
After where I’ve been
He will welcome me
I won’t understand
How he’ll put his robe on me
It will be amazing
That he’ll still call me son

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
When he calls me son
I once was lost but now I’m found
Cause he calls me Son

 *I write by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Now and then a word may not be readily recognizable to me and/or readily used by me, this is what does help call attention to the fact that it is most definitely from the Holy Spirit! I tried to change this word but sensed His abruptness in me keeping it so I looked it up online and found that this word with this exact prefix was available at merriam-webster. com but for $29.95 a year which I don’t believe I or anyone else wants to pay to find this exact definition. Maybe some of you have the definition in a dictionary at home but I do not. The definition for waning is available at the hyperlink to follow if anyone is interested!

And we know it is un-waning or not waning! I, in no way, want to come across sounding superior to the others who are receiving this. I’m just a servant, (**“But Jesus taught that a person must be a servant if he wants to become great. Even Jesus, the Son of God, came to this world to serve. He came to give His life to pay for the salvation of many people. Anyone who wants to follow Jesus must serve Him.”), sharing in a free gift that is available to all of you, too…because He is our Father and a trinity in Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit! He is our Helper: **http://breathoflifeag.com/followingchrist/sfamily1.html Randy Hurst is the author of a book called “The Helper” which was given to the congregation in the church I attend and well worth reading if you are given the chance.
