If only for a moment I could lay down all my cares at your feet and raise my hands in praise towards the cross where you spilt your blood, in sacrifice for my sin, then maybe I could take my eyes off myself long enough to see how wonderful the life you have given me is. If only for a moment I could only stop caring about whether I make a sale today, to put food on the table, if I could stop caring long enough to to see that you’ve already taken care of that concern, then maybe just maybe, I could fall on my face with tears streaming in the realization of the powerful Love you’ve been showing. I drove home today in frustration at the numerous wrong turns that the day had taken, then you showed up in all your Glory through a song that brought me to my knees with tears in a way that only a Savior can do. My face full of tears and my concerns laid at your feet, so that I could finally for a moment gain a closeness to you that I have been needing for so long. Thank you Jesus for not always giving me what I want, but always fulfilling my deep spiritual needs.
If this testimony has touched you in any way, and if you can relate to what I have written here, then I encourage you to seek the Lord for a moment when His powerful Love and grace can reach you through a song, like He did for me today through my moment of powerful praise and worship. Very easily in this life we can quickly become bogged down with life’s little problems that take our eyes off the prize that is our Savior Jesus. If this testimony relates to you and your life then take a few minutes the next time you are driving, and pull over and seek His comfort, perhaps through a song, to receive the Love that our wonderful Lord Jesus is always trying to bring us, so that you too may be fulfilled in a way that only Jesus can fulfill. Praise Jesus Christ for His greatness, and may the Love of God be with you always!
