Finding my way.....

So much has taken place in the last few months. Moving far away from my home of 30 years in Arlington, Texas to Sedona, Arizona, trying each day to figure out my new reality..retirement / new place / new home / new climate / no job / no friends (yet)...... Great new church home however! Praise the Lord. Learned a new song (to me) in the service this week that brings me back to my foundation in Christ.

 All I have is Christ
I once was lost in darkest night, yet thought I knew the way.
The sin that promised joy and life had led me to the grave.
I had no hope that You would own a rebel to Your will,
and if You had not love me first I would refuse You still.

But as I ran my hell-bound race indifferent to the cost.
 You looked upon my helpless state and led me to the cross.
And I beheld God's love displayed You suffered in my place.
You bore the wrath reserved for me, now all I know is grace.

Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone and live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands could never come from me. 
Oh Father, use my ransomed life in any way You choose.
And let my song forever be My only boast is You.

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life!
