A huge thank-you to all who truly do make America great with their hard work!
Sometime during this past week, a song entitled “Overnight” performed by musician Amy Grant showed up on my YouTube recommended videos. I had never heard this song before. “Overnight” is from the CD “Somewhere Down The Road” by Amy Grant from 2010. I started wondering what was going on in my life in 2010 that allowed me to miss this popular song.
The following are the words of a beautiful song by Sara Groves. Her songs speak to me in such a powerful way – I hope they might for you as well. I have the highlighted chorus written on a card that I keep within view to remind me of how my actions and attitude can affect others.
Have you ever heard someone say, “I’m not going to change!”? I certainly have and may have said that statement myself, on occasion.
I’ve been thinking about the possibility of someone never changing.
Throughout our lives, we keep evolving as we experience life. The only way to avoid change would be stubbornness or intellectual laziness. Let me explain.
We each think we have the corner on the market regarding truth. I remember hearing a pastor speak years ago about how the church (regardless of our denomination) may hold certain views today as non-negotiables but may have a new set twenty years from now.
Our parents, with a clean conscience, believed certain things and passed those beliefs down to us. Even though we may have gone through a period of our lives where we verbalized complete disagreement with those beliefs, as time passes those same views somehow become our default mode.
