The song is about being a reborn Christian. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior at the beginning of this year. This past May I visited Israel and was baptized in the Jordan river.
How joyful, free and peaceful my life has become ever since.
Though I always believed in God, belief in the Triune or Jesus Christ, not so. I wasn’t raised as a Christian, therefore, my knowledge of the Bible was nearly non-existent. I knew very little about Christian life, let alone “living a life committed to the Lord”.
In my world, Christianity was not very often discussed as it carried certain labels like “boring”, “conservative”, “hypocritical”, “Jesus freak”. Yes, I too was one of those labelers. It was the kind of spirituality I “intentionally” stayed away from. Today, I am sorry and apologize to my Christian brothers and sisters for those thoughtless and mindless thoughts of the past.
Today, I realize how immature I was, how prejudiced I was without really knowing.
Thank God stepped in and through the lens and ears of nature, the many dreams and visions, the Lord slowly transformed me from within. Though I didn’t know nor suspect, I was walking the path leading to Him. Today, I realize how God orchestrated every detail. Everything I experienced these past 2 or 3 years was all in preparation for my rebirth…in AWE and deepest RESPECT I say God fearingly…well played - well played :)
I now understand why I bought this little book many, many years years ago…
GOD ALWAYS HAS A PLAN B (Scott Degelman and Friends)… and inside the cover it reads:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”
