Repitition

One of my favorite songs is “Jesus You’re Beautiful” by Jon Thurlow from Kansas City House of Prayer.

Near the end of the song there is one phrase that he keeps repeating and repeating.

Sometimes repeating is good.  (Just not at two a.m. when you’re trying to sleep, as this song has a pretty ambitious tempo)

Repetition helps us to remember.

“I know the end of the story; I come up from the wilderness, leaning on my Beloved.”

“I know the end of the story; I come up from the wilderness, leaning on my Beloved.”

“I know the end of the story; I come up from the wilderness, leaning on my Beloved.”

The other day a girlfriend and I had this same song going through our heads at the same time.  We neither one believe things like this are coincidence, so of course we had to discuss this.  What was it that God wanted us to hear at that time?  What did He want us to glen from this “Coincidence”?

The best way to describe our findings would be to answer the who, what, where, when and why questions.

Who?  It is obvious he is singing about us.

What?  Leaning on our Beloved.

Where?  Coming up from the wilderness

When?  After a distressing time.

Why?  We will have confidence at the end of the story.

It has been my experience, that distressing times WILL come.  It’s not a matter of “If”.  It’s more a matter of “when”.

During these times, I believe that if we don’t “lean on our Beloved”, then the weight of these distressing things will level us.

Our Beloved, Jesus, the Lover of our souls, waits for us to lean on Him.

His desire is for us.

His desire is to bear our burdens for us.

His desire is to be our support, and our safeguard.

If Jesus is not yet your “Beloved”,

Then won’t you visit the “Rescue” page of this blog?
