Eighteen Years

02 Apr

Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it. Psalm 37:5 NASB

Eighteen years ago I read these words.

No joke.

I was no fool.

I read these words.

They became to me the very spoken words of God.

He said, “Commit your ways to me and I will do it.”

I did and he did.

I committed my life to Christ.

God saved me.

These words utterly changed my life.

Changed my past.

Changed my future.

Everything I am doing now is rooted in that moment.

Eighteen years ago.

1990 doesn’t seem that long ago.

Eighteen years?

Can’t be true.

Time waits for no man.

Things are the same.

Things have changed.

Lot of water under the bridge, Lot of other stuff too
Don’t get up gentlemen, I’m only passing through

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I’ve been walking forty miles of bad road
If the Bible is right, the world will explode

Bob Dylan, “Things Have Changed,” 1999 [Video]
