I tend to believe that God will use whatever we have in our lives, to speak into our lives. Sometimes we give him more opportunities than others. The last few weeks I am out of control- I listen to Caedmon's Call everyday, so God is just using it to remind me who I am in Him.
I could pick a lot of their songs that hit home for me but this one seemed right today. One of my favs anyway, but lately I just really feel like it is a prayer.
"So keep on coming with these lines on the road,
Keep me responsible be it a light or heavy load
Keep me guessin' at these blessings in disguise
Cause I walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes."
And also the line-
"But I get turned around
I mistake my happiness for blessing
I'm blessed as the poor
But still I just success by how I'm dressing"
I could interpret and analyze cause that's how I role, but I will let you listen a few times and do that yourself- for yourself.
Eph. 2:4-9 ish
"Because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive in Christ even when we were dead in transgressions- it is by grace you have been saved....For it is by grace you have been saved through faith- and this not of yourselves but the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast."
So glad my defining of "success" is not my Father's. I am better than "good enough", I shouldn't worry about what others think, or if I think I am "enough". Christ is my security. For some reason I find this a difficult truth to hold onto.
