I have been listening to some old music lately. Namely Rich Mullins music. Rich was a deeply spiritual man with a true longing for God. He was one of those rare gems who lived a life of trying to grasp and immensity of God, trying to know Him, understand Him. But in the midst of that understanding he knew and embraced how God changed him as he grew in the Knowledge of the Holy.
Below I copied the opening lyrics to a song called "Home." Read through them a few times and truly reflect on the last three lines. Let God soeak to you about your PAST and how He was at work in it.
"I see the morning moving over the hills
I can see the shadows on the western side
And all those illusions that I had
They just vanish in Your light
Though the chill in the night still hangs in the air
I can feel the warmth of morning on my face
Though the storm had tossed me
'Til I thought I'd nearly lost my way
And now the night is fading and the storm is past
And everything that could be shaken was shaken
And all that remains is all I ever really had.
- Rich Mullins
