The struggle to become half the man i used to be . . .  


DAY#4 - DeGarmo & Key
DeGarmo and Key

When the light went on in my heart 21 years ago and I became a Christian I searched for some good Christian Music to listen to. I found two tapes(yes tapes) that i listened to all the time. 'More than Enough' by Bash-n-the-Code and 'The Pledge' by DeGarmo & Key were my albums of choice. All the songs
on 'The Pledge' were great songs but the one that spoke to my heart as a new Christian was 'If God Is for Us(Who Can Be Against Us)

Some Lyrics:

If you're weary, don't lose hope in fighting the good fight
Just remember, God is with you through the darkest night
In the heat of battle keep your head up high
God is marching with us. He's always at our side

If God is for us, who can be against us?
No power on earth can take his love away
If God is for us, who can be against us?
We can live in victory today

When you worry, when you feel like the world is caving in
He is stronger than our weakness, faithful to the end
Like the Master taught us, there's life beyond the cross
Even though we're weary, our battle won't be lost


Taken from: Romans 8:28-32

28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. 29 For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory. 31 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? 32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won't he also give us everything else?

What a great promise to hold onto. So I am holding on.

Side note:
Five years after I became a Christian I met Eddie DeGarmo and his lovely wife Susan, we have been friends ever since. He is a great man and I am glad God used him to speak truth in to my heart way back in the day.
