Changed (Off the Soundtrack of My Life)

I'm listening through my itunes top-rated playlist and stumbled across a song that struck me a couple years ago. It resonated with the deepest yearnings in my heart as I shouted it at at a Good Shepherd worship service.

Now more then ever I see how the lyrics to this song make it an excellent candidate for the soundtrack of my life over the last 5 years.




I wrote a letter today
And what I wrote
Was my own obituary
Cause from the graveyard of self
You have resurrected me

I sing Jesus
You have changed the way I do everything
You have changed the way I see everything

With You I begin
Everyday the same
And I’m gonna drink deep
That is why I came
Cause truth is a river flowing
Renewal for your mind
Let it set your heart free
The way that it did mine...

Looked in the mirror today
And what I saw was not the same as yesterday
Cause more and more You’re Transforming and rearranging me

You have changed the way I do everything
You have changed the way I wear my wedding ring
You have changed the way I treat my family
You have changed the way I see all my friends
You have changed the way that I spend my time
You have changed the way that I use my mind
You have changed the things I spend money on
You have changed everything I ever thought was mine
You have changed my emotions
You have steadied me
You have changed my eyes and what I let them see
You have changed the course of my history
Thank God You’re still changing me!
