Quiet Time Musings for 7/14/14: SAVED BY BUFFET
From the cross, Jesus never looked over the crowd and said, “I’ll save him and her and that family over there and you. No, not you–yeah, you.”
I awoke this morning considering the excellent, thoughtful message about baggage from our pastor yesterday morning. As often happens, the lyrics to a song I remember from high school days came to mind. . .
Are you tired of chasing pretty rainbows?
Are you tired of spinning round and round?
Wrap up all the shattered dreams of your life
And at the feet of Jesus lay them down
He never said there’d only be sunshine
He never said there’d be no rain
He only promised a heart full of singing
About the very thing that once brought pain
give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
Shattered dreams, wounded hearts, broken toys,
Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
And He will turn your sorrow’s into joy
