The sermon today was on justification. How we live our lives seeking justification in and through just about everything we do, to just about every person we meet. I had never really thought about it, to be honest! However, this got me thinking. (I typically try not to be a thinker! LOL!) The cool thing is, I never have to justify myself to Christ. In fact, I can’t! NEVER would be able to! I am justified because Christ lives in me. I know I can’t say it the way I heard it, and hope that I don’t confuse anyone with my words. Just been thinkin’ about this!
I have been thinking about the words to this song today too, because God is working on me. We used to sing the song “He’s Still Workin’ On Me” when I was little. Do you know that one? I’m glad I got to sing it loud and proud as a child because I do realize that He is never finished with us! I want to “learn to let go and rely on the One who walks with me, as hard as it may be!” How about you?
Bless the Lord by Laura Story
You give and take away for my good
For who am I to say what I need?
For You alone see the hidden parts of me
that need to be stripped away.
And as You begin to refine
I’m learning to let go and rely
on One who walks with me
As hard as it may be,
You’re teaching me all the while to say:
Bless the Lord, O my soul
All that’s in me bless Your name
Forget not Your power un- told
not Your glory or Your fame
For You came to heal the broken
to redeem and make me whole
Bless the Lord, O my soul.
