Lessons


Did you ever realize that a lot of the lessons in the bible are in there more than once? In my case, I think that God knows I need constant reminding and even the lessons I know need to be retaught to me over and over... hence the name of my blog.


The sermon from this Sunday has been resonating in my heart and head since yesterday. I have a lot of thoughts, but they are all just a bunch of craziness running through my brain. So right now, I am focusing on this one song that I love and figuring out what God is trying to tell me... here is "the blessing" by John Waller.


The Blessing

Let it be said of us while we walked among the living
Let it be said of us by the ones we leave behind
Let it be said of us that we lived to be a blessing for life

And let it be said of us that we gave to reach the dying
Let it be said of us by the fruit we leave behind
Let it be said of us that our legacy is blessing for life

This day, You set life,
You set death right before us
This day, every blessing and curse is a choice now
And we will choose to be a blessing for life

Let it be said of us that our hearts belong to Jesus
Let it be said of us that we spoke the words of life
Let is be said of us that our heritage is blessing for life

'Cause blessings and curses are choices
Will we build up, tear down?
The moment of truth is now
For your kingdom, for our children
For the sake of every nation
We will choose to be a blessing for life

Great song! Let it be said that I lived to be a blessing in life. What better way to sum it up?
