On Fire for All Things Christ

Plain Forgiven

I like this song, Forgiven by Sanctus Real. I remember being in the car with my eight year old nephew one Sunday afternoon and when this song began to play on the radio, I turned the volume up and started singing along to it quite loudly. My nephew is not familiar with Christian music, but he caught on to my excitement and joined me in singing the main line… IIII’m forgiveeennnnn… Honestly, I savored the moment of hearing my nephew sing along. How sweet it was to see and hear him enjoy the music with me. I pray that God may continue to use me as a positive influence to bring him closer to Christ, and in the same token, I pray that you may also be led to reach out and be an influence of Christ-likeness to the younger generations. However small we think the action is, it is large in the eyes of God. (Hah, all of a sudden, it makes me think of the line by Neil Armstrong, “One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind.”) Our actions towards God may seem like small potatoes, but it is a part of something big that God’s got going on. Amen!! : )

On another note, in hearing the song this morning, this line popped out at me… Well the past is playing with my head

How often we let the past play in our minds, but our good Lord wants us to put that past behind us. He wants us to know that we have freedom in knowing and believing that we are forgiven! All praise the Lord!! I am forgiven!! Here is the video and lyrics to the song.

Enjoy!! : )

Well the past is playing with my head
And failure knocks me down again
I’m reminded of the wrong
That I have said and done
And that devil just wont let me forget

In this life
I know what I’ve been
But here in your arms
I know what I am

[chorus]
I’m forgiven
I’m forgiven
And I don’t have to carry
The weight of who I’ve been
Cause I’m forgiven

My mistakes are running through my mind
And I’ll relive my days, in the middle of the night
When I struggle with my pain, wrestle with my pride
Sometimes I feel alone, and I cry

In this life
I know what I’ve been
But here in your arms
I know what I am

[back to chorus]

When I don’t fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ ‘cause

[back to chorus]
