Finally Alive and Rejoicing in Jesus

There are moments that come along now and again where my Heavenly Father lets me catch a glimpse backward (in a sense) to remember life without Christ.  Because I grew up in the church its not always a seemingly huge difference(though in true reality it is beyond huge!!), but when I hear certain songs that I knew years ago…songs I enjoyed, but didn’t/couldn’t truly rejoice in…that’s when I know the wonderful grace of Jesus and it is a testimony established deep in my spirit, that I have the very life of Jesus within me…and that makes every difference..ALL the difference!  I was born again.  The joy welling up as I worship the Triune God is not just a good feeling, its a rejoicing in the glory of Almighty God.  Here’s a song from Steve Green (at a Gaither Vocal Band reunion) that I haven’t heard in years, but when I did…I heard it and responded to it much much differently than before Jesus saved me.

As I listened to this next one…it quickly became my hope and prayer. 

May our footprints lead those following behind us to Jesus.  Blessings.

Find Us Faithful

We’re pilgrims on the journey
Of the narrow road
And those who’ve gone before us line the way
Cheering on the faithful, encouraging the weary
Their lives a stirring testament to God’s sustaining grace

Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses
Let us run the race not only for the prize
But as those who’ve gone before us
Let us leave to those behind us
The heritage of faithfulness
Passed on through godly lives

Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave
Lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful

After all our hopes and dreams have come and gone
And our children sift through all we’ve left behind
May the clues that they discover
And the memories they uncover
Become the light that leads them
To the road we each must find

Repeat Chorus Twice

Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
