“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.“
When I repented and returned to my Father’s arms in July of 2006 my relationship with God the Father and my Savior Jesus was renewed. I wanted to learn more about my Savior and Lord. I had no church, hadn’t read the Word in over 25 years, so I chose ( the Holy Spirit in the new me led me there) to read the Gospel of John. Astounding, amazing mercy and love is what I found! WOW!! I spent months in John’s gospel, all the while trying to find a home church. I visited 4, but a huge thing was missing from each one! The commandment of Jesus to “go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). A local Christian radio station became my place of worship, learning and fellowship. I lived alone and didn’t/couldn’t drive because of my illnesses, some people call it “being home bound”. I don’t consider ‘bound’– I consider it a blessing. Anyway, I’m getting off track here. Every morning I turned on the radio as soon as I got out of bed. It played almost the entire day. I called that station so often, almost everyone who worked there, knew me by name. God supplied my needs for a home church with a radio station.
The song in today’s ‘message in music’ came on the radio one afternoon. I was struggling spiritually and a song came one the radio I hadn’t heard before. The first time I heard the lyric ‘ tell me how far is the east from the west?’ I pondered.. then the response came ‘ from one scarred hand to the other’. WOW! I stood there in tears as I pictured my Savior on the cross, bearing the burden of my sin. I share this song praying you reflect on the lyrics and God’s amazing grace and mercy. ♥ Streim
