All Because of Jesus

Giver of every breath I breathe

Author of all eternity

Giver of every perfect thing

To you be the glory


Maker of heaven and of earth

No one can comprehend your worth

King over all the universe

To you be the glory

I'm alive because i'm alive in You

It's all because of Jesus I'm alive

It's all because the blood of Jesus Christ that cover's me

and raised this dead man's life

it's all because of Jesus I'm alive

Every sunrise sings Your praise

The universe cries out your praise

I'm singing freedom all my days

Now that I'm alive
Fee - All Because of Jesus

From the album We Shine
Label: Provident Music Distribution

I feel this song is true of my life. So why is it so hard to keep the focus where it belongs? A group writing challenge has been sent out by On the Horizon and The Next Step: Keeping Christ in Christmas. It is a struggle every day not to get caught up in the "stuff" of Christmas. So at our house, we keep playing the music, singing the words and try to keep the right song alive in our hearts. It should not be this hard.

This is a beautiful expression of the season. Such joy and focus together make living the love of God a source of peace and pleasure--even when it isn't easy!

God bless you!

It should not be this hard, and yet it is. I suspect we are working against spiritual forces we can't imagine. Thanks for a timely reminder of what is REALLY important.
