"I Believe"

Every once and awhile I like to share lyrics from a song that really touches me. I recently found a CD I hadn’t listened to in awhile and very quickly I was reminded of why I enjoyed it so much. The group is Sierra and the song that I want to share is called “I Believe”.

The lyrics seem fitting to me, especially this week, as we approach Resurrection Sunday. This time of year we are given an opportunity to celebrate the amazing gift that God gave us in the sacrifice of His Son and the hope in a life with Him forever as He has overcome the grave.

Sometimes I grumble because we never seem to get ahead with our finances, or the car keeps breaking down, or one of the kids misbehaves. Many times I forget to see the simple beauty in the world around me, the gifts that God has given to me time and time again. Often I feel underappreciated, undervalued and slighted when I don’t get what I feel I deserve in this life.

And then there are times, when I hear the lyrics to a simple song that remind me of where my value should lie. The reminder that God chose to sacrifice His Son for me. Sure there were multitudes of people He sacrificed for – but if it had just been me – I believe that He still would have chosen the same path. In that gift is a reminder that I have value in ways I cannot comprehend.

He chose me. He chose you. Isn’t that amazing?! I can think of 1000 different reasons why I don’t deserve it but in spite of all of my defects of character –He chose me. The price for my sin was paid on that cross over 2000 years ago, long before those sins were committed the price was paid.

Today I rejoice in the peace that comes with having a relationship with a Savior that sustains me. A Savior that I believe has set me free…..I Believe!

"I Believe - Sierra"
I walk in light
I am no longer in the darkness
I am a child
Of the Most Holy One
And every day I will thank Him for His mercy
That chose willingly
To be a sacrifice for me

I believe in the cross
I believe there was a cost
The blood of Christ was shed
To pay the price for the lost
And I believe the Father gave
His son so He could save
This captive heart of mine
And set me free
Yes, I believe

I live by faith
I choose to stand upon the promise
That God's sweet grace
Will hold me close to His side
As I feel His Spirit's warm embrace
Flowing through me, changing me
I will never be the same

I believe in the cross
I believe there was a cost
The blood of Christ was shed
To pay the price for the lost
And I believe the Father gave
His son so He could save
This captive heart of mine
And set me free
Yes, I believe

Heaven opened up and sent my Savior to me
And I have been redeemed

I believe in the cross
I believe there was a cost
The blood of Christ was shed
To pay the price for the lost
And I believe the Father gave
His son so He could save
This captive heart of mine
And set me free
Yes, I believe
