10.1.2020 – “This, my soul, you were born into…”

I love this song… I love the way it tells an ancient story, a story with a surprising twist… it’s the greatest story of all time and eternity…the story of Jesus. 🌹✨

This is a story that we have been “born into”…this is what we have “inherited” from a GOOD Father, who adopted us into His Kingdom— redeemed through the blood of His perfect son Jesus…

…and it’s a reminder that He so purposely created us to live in… “such a time as this.”

Let’s “live” it…

“This My Soul” by the Gray Havens

A voice came and spoke to the silence
The words took on beauty and form
The form took its shape as a garden was born
Then man from the dust came reflecting
All goodness and beauty and life
But he lowered his gaze
As he listened to the face of low desires

This my soul you were born
You were born into
What this man has done
It all extends to you
Let the words shake on down along your spine
And ring out true that you might find new life

The voice came and swords blocked the garden
None could return with their lives
A curse there was placed upon every man to face
For all of time
No wisdom of man or rebellion
Could deliver new life out of death
But the voice with the curse
Spoke a promise that the word would take on flesh

This my soul you were born
You were born into
What this man has done
It all extends to you
Let the words shake on down along your spine
And ring out true that you might find…

Then the perfect son of man
Took the place the voice had planned
Since the garden and before
He took the swords and cursed the grave
There’s nothing more to separate us from the promise
The words of a living hope

And this my soul you were born
You were born into
What this man has done
It all extends to you
Let the words shake on down along your spine
And ring out true that you might find… new life

Father, though mankind made the choice to “inherit death” instead of life, You stepped in, You made a promise, and You made a Way for us to inherent new life, and life everlasting…. and that’s what You had planned for us all along. 💝 Thank You, Lord Jesus. You are the way, the truth, and the life. 🌹

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”—John 14:6
