It’s the 24th day of the month, which means, more often than not, I find myself reading through the 24th Psalm again. And, I know how the 24th Psalm ends. I’ve read it so many times. I’ve listened to those same words sing Truth over me during one of the most challenging seasons of my life. “Who is this King of glory? The Lord Almighty- he is the King of glory.”
I heard those words again this morning and, like always, gratitude for everything He has done and everything He is capable of doing swept over my heart.
Third Day songs
I remember listening to this band and their songs all the time while on one of the biggest journeys in my life. Because of this, it’s hard for me to even think of this band without it triggering the gratitude switch in my heart. It’s like the Pavlov dog experiment. Hear Third Day song…become thankful for that journey again.
It was the journey where God took my hand and reassured me that no matter how hard or how scary the road was, He would be there with me every step of the way. It was the journey that changed everything. Everything. It was the journey that led from bondage to freedom…from shackles to sunshine.
Last night, I met a stranger. The only thing I know about her is that she very well might be at the beginning of that kind journey. I only spent a brief few minutes with this stranger, but my heart went out to her. Oh, how I want sunshine for her!
I want this be an end and a beginning for her. I want her to come face to face with a God so big that she will desire nothing else but to cling to His hand and walk with Him further up freedom’s path. I want her to have moments today that, years from now, she can look back on in awe and wonder. I want her to have words in Scripture that will leap off the page at her and start singing over her. Loving her. Embracing her.
“Who is this King of glory? The Lord Almighty- he is the King of glory.”
