It’s Sunday morning, June 16, 2019. No matter what you did last night or where you were, the problems, hopes, doubts, suspicions, dreams, fears, ambitions and worries you faced yesterday are likely all still here today.
No, that’s not a negative, that’s a statement of reality. I know how it feels to wake up and either know too well what I did the night before or wish that I didn’t know. That’s how a lot of us live for many years.
And then Jesus Christ on the morning of March 1, 1991, opened my eyes to myself, to Him, to the reality of my need for His saving grace. That was the moment my life changed forever.
A lot has happened since then, and not all of it was fun. Learning to live in reality rather than the figments we create to avoid facing the truth isn’t easy. But the result is a joy in my heart that is difficult to describe.
Listen to the words to Hillsong Worship’s “Who You Say I Am.” It comes about as close as anything to capturing that joy. My prayer today is that every person reading this comes to the same joy.
By the way, today is also my birthday, and posting this beautiful music is my gift to you!
