Day 10 of 30 of the Christian Music Challenge
Have you ever been in a place where you have chosen the wrong path? Maybe you were on the right one and made a choice to go to the wrong? Or maybe you were never on the right one to begin with? The wrong path is full of mistakes, you feel far from God, the old habits come back. You find yourself swearing, cheating, getting angry, abusive, sluggish - you don't recognise yourself. It is so easy at this point to think you are so far gone on this path that there is no turning back. You think God doesn't want you, that you are tainted. You are ashamed that you got it so wrong!
Our song today is a brand new song by Casting Crowns called One step away. I absolutely love this song (playing it very loud in the office right now!). This song teaches you are just one step away from surrender, just one step away from coming home. You are just one step away from Jesus. He is waiting with open and loving arms, it doesn't matter how far you have gone, his Grace is waiting. All you have to do today is decide to take that one step in the right direction and fall into the hands of Jesus.
The bridge and chorus sum it up:
Lay down, lay down your old chains. Come now, take up your new name. Your best life ahead now. One step away.
I pray today that you will take the step... get off the wrong path and onto the right one!
