VICTORY SURELY IS SWEET!

Victory surely is sweet.

As my high school alma mater and school that I just happen to work at now (what a blessing that is!) moved toward VICTORY against our biggest rival in the history of both schools, my heart felt like it couldn’t take it!  I was so nervous when the game started and it only got worse as the game progressed.  When we took the lead, it wasn’t by much and I was ready to start pacing.  The game was packed so I didn’t try and disrupt anyone trying to get out of the stands even though I came close to doing it several times.  My husband, a major Rebel fan as well, almost a bigger fan, but definitely bigger critic encouraged me to hang in there and see it all the way through.  Man…I wanted to bolt!  It was like my life or something was hinged on this one little game.  How crazy does that sound!?!  This game was seriously intense until the last 44 seconds where we finally had the ball and only had to kneel it twice.  What a HUGE sigh of relief!

I had a friend ask me earlier that day when I was talking about how nervous I was for this game, “Win or lose, isn’t the sun still going to shine tomorrow?”  That question helped me so much!  At that point, I was even thinking of not going to the game! GASP!  His words did help me get through the game.  When I thought I was about to instantly contract a bleeding ulcer, I would remember, win or lose…it’s gonna be ok!  But.. But..

I WANTED THAT VICTORY!   And we did possess it in the end, thank the good Lord.

The sun did shine a bit brighter the next day… and victory is sweet!  But today I think of a victory that I wish we could all possess… AND WE REALLY CAN, but we have to decide to receive it.

This victory is sweeter than any other!!!

I went to a memorial service for a member of our church, friend and family member today where I was reminded again that the victory we have in Jesus is the best, most sweetest and is above all others.  Football games, making the A or wearing your “skinny” jeans is nothing compared to what we have with the blood of Jesus Christ.

We have life after death.  Actually death here on earth is just a period, a dot, a bend in the road as the preacher referred to it today…  It is actually a BEGINNING ..a beginning of our eternal life, free from sorrow, tears or fear.  Wow!

I WANT THAT VICTORY!

I CLAIM IT, ACCEPT IT, POSSESS IT…

I HAVE THAT VICTORY!

VICTORY SURELY IS SWEET!

HE gives you a song!

I’ve been thinking and praying about what to sing at church tomorrow…

I EVEN GOOGLED “What should I sing in church tomorrow?”   So, this is what came up:

“Tomorrow”
Jesus said “Here I stand, won’t you please let me in?”

And you said “I will tomorrow”

Jesus said “I am he who supplies all your needs”
And you said “I know, but tomorrow, ooh, tomorrow, ill give my life
tomorrow, I thought about today, but it’s so much easier to say”

Tomorrow, who promised you tomorrow,
better choose the lord today, for
tomorrow very well might be too late.

Jesus said “Here I stand, won’t you please take my hand?”
And you said “I will tomorrow”

Jesus said “I am he who supplies all your needs”
And you said “I know, but tomorrow, ooh, tomorrow, ill give my life
tomorrow, I thought about today oooohh,
but it’s so much easier to say”

Tomorrow, who promised you tomorrow,
better choose the lord today, for
tomorrow very well might be too late.

And who said tomorrow would ever come for you

still you laugh and play and continue on to say
“tomorrow”

forget about tomorrow
won’t you give your life today
oohh please don’t just turn and walk away

tomorrow, tomorrow is not promised
don’t let this moment slip away
your tomorrow could very well begin today

I am burdened with names of people who need Jesus.  Praying for them is not a burden.  I mean, I ache for them.  I want them to know Jesus.  I pray so hard that God softens their hearts and shows them HE is the Lord…JESUS is the ticket, the key, the path to being happy in this life and eternally happy.  I want Him for everyone!  So, when this song came up that I had never heard before, I KNEW GOD gave me this song!  He does it all the time… not only did He give me this song, he gave me the ability to sing it.  I struggled some and prayed a bunch and when I finally sang it all the way through correctly, I CRIED.  It is such an emotional thing when you know GOD DID IT.  He did it through you, for you and is going to use it for others.  That is the most amazing feeling.  To know YOUR GOD loves you and cares for you and gives you a song.

HE GIVES YOU A SONG!  **sing it** …whatever it may be!
