In Christ Alone

So I am sure I have written about this song before because it is one of my favorites, but last Sunday a specific line spoke to me. It took me by surprise a little and I have held onto it all week. We were singing In Christ Alone and I was singing my little heart out. I always sing loud. Sorry to everyone around me but music has always been a way for me to connect. sidetracked and I'll go back. We got to the point in the song where it says "Jesus controls my destiny." and I almost stopped singing because I was digesting that line. I think just about every Christian knows that but its not something we think about a lot. We get in our situations and doing what we want and I'll admit there are times when I try to control my destiny. Maybe I am the only one that does that but I do. I think I have to do it all. That if I make a wrong decision then my life will be ruined. It puts a lot of pressure on you. But the flip side of the coin is that there is peace in knowing Jesus is in control. This week when I've been stressing about something I repeat that line in my head and feel a flood of peace. I hope you can feel that peace today too.
