From the Journal

From the Journal

"Right now my favorite song is "Before the Throne of God Above." I especially love verse 2:

'When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upwards I look and see Him there
Who made an end to all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the Just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me.'

"I pick up my guitar and sing that several times a day, just to remember that no matter how overwhelmed or behind I feel I am RIGHTEOUS, LOVED, and ACCEPTED by my GOD! Nothing can touch that. Nothing. Ever. Those words are so full of hope and light! There can be no diminishing of the glory and brilliance of the love that the Father has for me; and the complete fullness of the price has already been paid."

One of my friends just made a CD for me and he put that song on there! I had forgotten how much I love that song too! Thank you for sharing that!

Yo, Mon...scary! Remember...on the 24th that song released the "burden" from my back! Amazing how the Spirit can move in a wave!
