TobyMac scores his 7TH hit on my chart since 2007 with his latest – “Scars” – which he performed LIVE in concert as the 5TH song of a 20-song set on his recent swing through South Florida. Once he got in to the beat and the lyrics of the song I kind of knew that it would be a future hit on the radio.
One of the ministries that my ministry supports financially is the Greater Miami (Florida) chapter of Youth For Christ. This organization gives kids age 11 to 19 an alternative to a life on the streets and of the world. They exist to help young people develop a relationship with Jesus and reach their God-given potential. Each March or April they put on a fundraiser Saturday dinner and Sunday lunch where they spotlight some of the kids who are prospering in the program, as well as some of the leaders who were once kids in the program. They give wonderful testimonies of how redemption and salvation have changed their lives forever – despite their circumstances – and thanks to our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
I sometimes wonder what if a Youth For Christ organization had existed in my local area when I was a troubled teen in the early-1980s, and I had joined it ? How much different would my life be today nearly 40 years later ? Would I have joined the military, and stayed working for the military for all of these years ? Would I have followed Christ into my adult life ? Would I have retreated back to the ways of the world ? How different would my life be at 52 than it is now ?
I don’t need to wonder much, for God rescued me and saved me at just the right time – in His time – at age 39. He knew what He was doing when He used His music as an invitation to follow Him. And I did.
This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend – 4 new entries on Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
