I was reading a couple of fellow blogger's posts about being younger and also of coming to Jesus from a Chris Rice song. Days when things seemed to be of innocence. Do you ever long for those days? I do. It got me to thinking about a previous post I did about a new Michael English song called "Time" from his new project. So, today I thought I would post it again. The lines of this song really get to me. God has given us life. I'm thankful through all my years that I accepted his wonderful grace at an early age. No, things in life aren't always easy. But, I know this much: I would rather go through the valleys with him than without him. So, today, enjoy a previous post and I hope everyone has a blessed weekend!
And all my days are numbered
All my steps are ordered
Every breath of every moment
I have now belongs to you
I belong to you
It all goes by so quickly. It seems like yesterday that I got my first bicycle. I even remember my first ballglove and my love of baseball. I remember the first time sitting behind the microphone of a radio station. The day I got married. The years of playing baseball, running, taking vacations and so much more. Plus some of the sorrows as well. My mother’s passing, relatives passing away, and now some of the problems I deal with.
The line of this song by Michael English called “Time” from his new CD coming out Tuesday hits home, “My steps are ordered.” This I do know: Jesus has been there through every step of the way. Even during my times of so-called self sufficiency, pride and self-reliance, it was still the Lord that provided any good gift that I experienced.
I’m no longer the kid running wildly through the fields of the old farm I lived on. But, inside, I know someday I’ll run, jump and dance in the presence of my Lord. Yes, all my days are numbered and all my steps are ordered. But that’s okay. Now, that I’m a bit older I lean on him more. He truly is all I can really trust and believe in for eternity. It says to remember the creator in the days of our youth. Now that I am older, I’m certainty glad that I did.
So listen to a clip of this new song "Time" that’s on Michael’s new release "The Prodigal Comes Home." All in all, Jesus is my everything. I wouldn’t have made it this far without him. I owe him everything. May the peace of Christ be with you all!
