Sony’s Thoughts: He Looked Beyond My Fault

“How marvelous the grace that caught my falling soul! He looked beyond my fault and saw my need.” ~ Dottie Rambo

I’ve heard this song sung a lot but I wonder how many think about the truth of those words. I was born into this world full of sin. There was nothing good in me except for the fact that a loving God looked down from Heaven, saw me in my mother’s womb and said, “That is one girl I plan to use.” Although I did not always acknowledge Him or think about Him, He kept His eye on me, protecting me and loving me every step of the way. Eventually, I said “Yes” to Him and I’m so thankful I did!

His grace truly is amazing. His love truly is marvelous. I can’t fathom how anyone could love me so much but I feel His love and it makes me desire to return that love to the best of my ability.

  1. I am so happy to use this song in my ministry. I to have ran from the lord along time before i fully gave my whole body and soul to Him. He has protected me so many time when I look back at my past. Things I have done that should never been forgiven. But serving an alsome God, He looked past all my faults and forgave me of all my sin. and I look forward to the eternal life that waits me when I leave this world. Thank Jesus for forgiveness, and that it is all behind us. forever forgotten. I serve an alsome God. I can’t thank Him enough. but to try to live a life worthy of Him. although we do sin each and everyday, but we can go back and ask forgiveness. Just like being a father, we forgive, and our Father in heaven forgives. Bro. Keith
