Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Sunday Singings - I'm Changed

This song just gets me in the throat for so many reasons.  I lift my hands and sing at the top of my lungs...proclaiming the truth ....I'm Changed.  I also lift up prayers for those who need to know that He is always there to lift them up, to take off the grave clothes they are wearing....to breath life into every situation.

Benjamin said, "Mom why do you lift your hands?"  "Because Benjamin we serve a mighty God.  I lift my hands to say, you Lord are wonderful!  I am yours Lord. I am thankful!"  "Benjamin it is  like flagging someone down to get their attention.....I am shouting Praise with my mouth and my hands"

 
Psalm 141:2  - Let my prayer be counted as incense before you, and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
So many scriptures speak of lifting up our hands.  I am lifting my hands!














I came up out of the water
Raise my hands up to the Father
Gave it all to Him that day
Felt a new wind kiss my face
Walked away, eyes wide open
Could finally see where I was goin'
It didn’t matter where I been
I’m not the same man I was then.

I got off track, I made mistakes
Back slid my way into that place where souls get lost
Lines get crossed
And the pain won’t go away
I hit my knees, now here I stand
There I was, now here I am
Here I am
Changed

I got a lot of “hey I’m sorry's”
The things I’ve done, man that was not me
I wish that I could take it all back
I just want to tell 'em that
Tell 'em that

I got off track, I made mistakes
Back slid my way into that place where souls get lost
Lines get crossed
And the pain won’t go away
I hit my knees, now here I stand
There I was, now here I am
Here I am

I’ve changed for the better
More smiles, less bitter
I even started to forgive myself

I hit my knees, I’m here, I stand
There I was, now here I am
Here I am, here I am
I'm changed
Yes, I am
I’m changed for the better

Thank God, I'm changed.

Awesome Janette, I cried my way through the whole song. It's the story for each of us... we're changed.

That was powerful. I usually lift my hands to say "I surrender."

What a beautiful song! I'm a huge Rascal Flatts fan, yet have never heard this song...shame on me. This is definitely one for my iPod. Thank you for sharing it.

Blessings - Julie
