Music: Find Us Faithful



Find Us Faithful
Steve Green

We're pilgrims on the journey
Of the narrow road
And those who've gone before us line the way
Cheering on the faithful, encouraging the weary
Their lives a stirring testament to God's sustaining grace
Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses
Let us run the race not only for the prize
But as those who've gone before us
Let us leave to those behind us
The heritage of faithfulness passed on through godly lives

CHORUS:
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave
Lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
After all our hopes and dreams have come and gone
And our children sift through all we've left behind
May the clues that they discover and the memories they uncover
Become the light that leads them to the road we each must find

REPEAT CHORUS
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful

I must confess I get easily distracted about so many things in life which I thought important but may not necessarily be essential in eternal worldview. Yes, I do set goals and knew what God has commanded me to do. But along the way, I discover new interesting things, hobbies and recreation I  found enjoyable and beneficial as well.  Next thing I know I am spending most of my energy and time on these with a justification that I am not doing anything wrong I am just trying to make the most of my time. But all these time and energy spent, is it even worth it?     

This song is my take away from today's CCF Sunday service. Thank you Lord for reminding me of what's truly valuable in Your eyes and how to be more intentional in making the most of the remaining time You have blessed us in this world.
