These are some of the words to the song "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol
I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life
All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see
I'm posting the link to the AIDS Video again set to this song along with a quote from the video that I just can't get out of my head. Songs are powerful things in my life as you all know by now. Images (especially those I never want to forget) set to music will stay with me forever. I'm glad this song, when I hear it, will forever play these images in my head.
"Sometimes in an effort to remind people of the cost of the cross, we withhold grace until we are sure they understand their sin. But it is in giving of our grace that we remind people that they need to go to Jesus to find their own. People understand their sin without our help. It’s grace they need help in understanding."
We need to understand grace. We need it for ourselves and everyone around us needs it also. Grace has the ability to change everything.
