After All...

In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I discussed the idea that I may be taken into hospital at some point.  At that time, you wouldn't hear from me, for the hospital rules prevent me from writing/posting any type of blog entry.

I suppose it's easy to tell that I am not in hospital, for I have written and posted this LwL entry!

From time to time, music is on my heart and mind.  How it gets there, I do not really know.  However, I do believe that sometimes it can be God placing it on my heart.

For the last few weeks, there has been a song that has been with me.  No matter how hard I try to not think of it, it has been resonating on my heart and mind.

It was written by Tom Snow and Dean Pitchford.  And was sung by Cher and Peter Cetera and is entitled, After All.  Here's a link so you can listen and/or sing along:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzI9F7ZeL_g.  Below are the lyrics.

After All

Well, here we are again;
I guess it must be fate.
We've tried it on our own,
But deep inside we've known
We'd be back to set things straight.

I still remember when
Your kiss was so brand new.
Every memory repeats,
Every step I take retreats,
Every journey always brings me back to you.

(chorus)
After All the stops and starts,
We keep coming back to these two hearts,
Two angels who've been rescued from the fall.
And after all that we've been through,
It all comes down to me and you.
I guess it's meant to be,
Forever you and me. After All.

When love is truly right
(This time it's truly right.)
It lives from year to year.
It changes as it goes,
Oh, and on the way it grows,
But it never disappears. 

Chorus

Always just beyond my touch,
You know I needed you so much.
After All, what else is livin' for?

Chorus-repeat


It seems I can relate to some of the lyrics.

When I think of the lyrics of the first verse, I feel I can relate in one way to it.  I relate to it, in a different way than the idea of a loving human relationship.

I think about how I felt when I recommitted my life to Christ, years ago.  Yup, I felt like... here we go, again!

After all, even though I felt I loved Jesus throughout most of my life, there were times when I wasn't always walking with Him. 

Yes, I suppose you could say I tried it on my own.  But, I came back to Him.

It does seem to me that every journey and/or trial in my life brings me back to Him.

I agree with the fact that when love is truly right, it lives from year to year.  And, it never disappears.  Both in our human lives, and with our relationship with God.

The ultimate to me is in the chorus.  I can truly relate to where the lyrics say, "And, after all that we've been through, it all comes down to me and you.  I guess it's meant to be, forever you and me.  After all."

When I think about how God loves us, I am reminded about a Bible verse that I can always relate to.

It's Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

What greater love could we ever receive?

Being born as sinners, we don't walk every minute of our lives with God.  But, at some point, if it is God's will, He provides salvation for us, through His only begotten Son.  Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

After all, Jesus paid the price for the sin of the world, of all who will believe upon Him.

Truly, it does all come down to Him and me.  Or, Him and you. 

Even after being through many life's trials, I realize it is truly meant to be, forever Him and me.  After all. 

For this, I praise God!


Until next time...
