Full Force Gale

Like a full force gale
I was lifted up again
I was lifted up again by the Lord

And no matter where I roam
I will find my way back home
I will always return to the Lord

In the gentle evening breeze
By the whispering shady trees
I will find my sanctuary in the Lord

I was headed for a fall
The I looked up and saw

the writing on the wall

Like a full force gale
I was lifted up again
I was lifted up again by the Lord

I was headed for a fall
The I looked up and saw

the writing on the wall

In the gentle evening breeze
By the whispering shady trees
I will find my sanctuary in the Lord

And no matter where I roam
I will find my way back home
I will always return to the Lord

Like a full force gale
I was lifted up again
I was lifted up again by the Lord

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound,

That saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost, but now am found;

Was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,

And grace my fears relieved;

How precious did that grace appear

The hour I first believed!

Through many dangers, toils and snares,

I have already come;

’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,

And grace will lead me home.

John Newton (verses 1-3)

But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” (v.29) … “Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” (v.36)

[Luke 10:29,36]

Who is my neighbor? Jesus never answers that question. Instead he asks, 'who proved to be a neighbor to the man' who needed help. Don't look for neighbors — be a neighbor to someone today.
