I had never been a huge fan of this song until today. I hadn’t heard it in a while and was listening to the lyrics when I heard… “I find my life when I lay it down.”
… “I FOUND my life when I LAID it down…”,
The song said,
… “I FIND my life when I LAY it down.”
The Romans 12:1-2 life is a “living sacrifice” life as opposed to a one-time surrender. It is one thing to give God all of you in a initial decision and another to LAY it down to keep FINDING your life in Him.
I was in a legit faith crisis a few months ago. God was silent for 2+ years and I thought He’d left me. I’d had times of silence before but not like this.
Finally, one day, I exasperated “Are you going to come get me?”
I wasn’t lost but the center of the hollow of God’s sovereign hand is as deep and wide as a formidable canyon. For in Him we live and move and have our being.
“In Him was life, and that life was the light of men.” John 1:4
Have you lost yourself? Have your categories been broken? Mind blown by heartless insensitivity and ingratitude? Are you broken on the wheels of living?
Find your life again by laying it down.
