Would I know You now?

Here is a great throw back Thursday!

Enjoy and God Bless!

 

Wayne Watson
Would I know You now if You walked into the room
If you stilled the crowd–If You light dispelled the gloom
And if I saw Your wounds–Touched Your thorn pierced brow
I wonder if I’d know You now
Would I know You now if You walked into this place
Would I cause You shame–Would my games be Your disgrace
Or would I worship You–Fall down upon my face
I wonder if I’d know You now
Or have the images I’ve painted
So distorted who You are
That even if the world was looking
They could not see You–The real You
Have I changed the true reflection
To fulfill my own design
Making You what I want
Not showing You forth divine
Would I miss You now if You left and closed the door
Would my flesh cry out “I don’t need You anymore”
Or would I follow You–Seek to be restored
I wonder–I wonder
Will I ever learn
I wonder–Would I ever know You now

Another Time Another Place

Watching this video today brings back so many memories!  This duet and song is one of my FAVORITES from back in the day – (look at Wayne Watson’s long hair!) and both of these artists are still touring, writing and singing today – 20+ years later!  Sandi Patty and Wayne Watson are the real deal and this is just one example.   Truly an underrated song with wonderful lyrics, melody and incredible voices – hope you enjoy going down memory lane today as much as I did.  Parts of this song gives me chills!

 

God Bless!

Heal Our Land

This is most appropriate in light of recent events in our country.

Lord, please heal our land.

Day 11 – Oh Holy Night by Wayne Watson

This is one of my favorite Christmas songs and this version by Wayne Watson is the most beautiful I’ve ever heard. That last note of his is AMAZING. I could not find this version on youtube last year so I made my own music video.

I hope you enjoy it!

I Want OUT!!

Yesterday Greg and I stepped into our garage ready to get into our car and run an errand.  As he got in the car – I walked around to the passenger side and saw a wasp on inside of the window closest to the passenger side.  It had somehow found its way into the garage and could see the outside through the window – but could NOT get out!  It continued buzzing and fussing around the whole perimeter of the glass – and would not leave to search other alternatives.  For instance – our HUGE garage door was now OPEN – why would it not  just fly out?  It was so puzzling to me.

As I was pondering this – I was thinking about a Wayne Watson song I heard several years ago on his Christmas CD – about a skeptical man trying to free some birds that had been trapped in his garage.  They were so frightened that any attempt to free them had been misunderstood.  He thought to himself, “If I could only become one of them and fly over to them and explain it – that they could be free….”  Then the man understood what God did for us by sending Jesus to us – to walk among us and be one of us – explaining the plan for us – no fear – no misunderstanding – only love and a way for our freedom.

I wondered about this poor wasp – who could not grasp the “way out” of our garage – and thought sadly, “he will die in here – before exploring another alternate route – because he can see the outside through the window.”  And thought about us.  Do we do the same thing concerning spiritual things we don’t understand or can’t comprehend?  Does God say, “Just trust me”  but we fight it because we can only see our own circumstances right in front of us?  Are we afraid to move or change our position – so we miss what God has for us?  Do we not want to relinquish control to something perceived as scary and the “unknown” because we know better?  How foolish we are.

Just like a wasp is in our world – we are to God and things bigger than we are – spiritual dimensions of time and space that we are limited to because of our five senses.  And yet – how many times have I said or thought, “I know better.  And I just want out.

Can I truly trust one greater, wiser and more loving than I am – to guide my path?  Even if I cannot see my way out of my situation?  Can I trust Him to show me the way out?  Even if it takes me through some dark and scary times – to get to the ultimate goal?  Would it surprise me to know that His way is far different from what I can now see?  Would I be able to totally let go?

When was the last time you had to let go and just…trust?  When was the last time you said, “I want Out”?

 

God Bless
