Let’s Get Cleaned

As I was listening to the preacher a few weeks ago he gave a checklist of how to know if you’re saved. And my heart sank. I couldn’t check off all of those things! It took several days with lots of prayer and Bible reading for me to get past that – and obviously I’m not done – and then as I was driving down the road I heard the Newsboys reminding me that I’m born again.

It’s the reminder in the words in the Newsboys song “Born Again” that keep me moving each day. Reminding me that I’m not perfect, I’m still growing. I will fall, but He’ll pick me up again. I’m never alone. I’m always growing.

“Born Again”

I found myself looking into the mirror
Knew I wasn’t who I wanted to be
I was living life the way that I wanted
But my eyes reminded me I’m not free

Believed a lie so everything that I know
Says I gotta go, tired of going solo
But I’m never gonna go there again

This is what it is, this is who I am
This is where I finally take my stand
I didn’t wanna fall but I don’t have to crawl
I met the one with two scarred hands

Giving Him the best of
Everything that’s left of
The life inside this man
I’ve been born again

Did He Die For THIS?I see ya walking like you’re living in fear
Having trouble even looking at me
Wishing they would give you more than words
Sick of people telling how it should be

What’d ya download? Where’d ya get your info?
You saw that I’m sure, now you’re in the in though
Gonna tell you what I believe

This is what it is, this is who I am
This is where I finally take my stand
I didn’t wanna fall but I don’t have to crawl
I met the one with two scarred hands

Giving Him the best of
Everything that’s left of
The life inside this man
I’ve been born again

We are the ones they call by name
I’m never gonna look back
Let go, let go, the guilt, the shame
Said, I’m never gonna look back
This is who I am

This is what it is, this is who I am
This is where I finally take my stand
I didn’t wanna fall but I don’t have to crawl
I met the one with two scarred hands

Giving Him the best of
Everything that’s left of
The life inside this man
I’ve been born again

This is who I am
I didn’t wanna fall but I don’t have to crawl
I met the one with two scarred hands

Giving Him the best of
Everything that’s left of
The life inside this man
I’ve been born again
I’ve been born again

* from AZ Lyrics

So this is where I stand, it’s Easter. It’s time to remember why and how. It’s time to GET CLEANED!
