Since Jesus Passed By

Good Morning, Friends and Family,

A beautiful sunny day here in NC.  I have been quietly puttering around in our kitchen as Jon played our audio Bible. I hope that doesn't sound irreverent, but sometimes sitting too long isn't so good. lol

John 3:16.... probably the most quoted verse in the Bible, breathed fresh joy into my heart.... God LOVED, God GAVE, Christ CAME!!!!!!

And then.....the story of the Samaritan woman began to unfold....

4 And he must needs go through Samaria.  (KJV)

4 It was necessary.... to go through Samaria...(Amplified)

Christ needed? It was necessary?  In actuality, it was the Samaritan woman who NEEDED...

 In reality, it was ME who was/ is so needy!!! And as I put away dishes... I was reminded that my needs are His! No, not that He needs, but what matters to me.... matters to HIM!!!

He needed to "go by" that dorm room in 1969. Why? Because this teenage girl was, oh, so needy!!!  And, yes, He told her "all that she  had ever done!"  A revelation for sure! She needed living water!  Water that would satisfy for all the years of her life!  Water that would well up as eternal life!

And yet now, He continues to "pass by," ever knowing my needs and having all the resources I need!!

So blessed today again by His living Word!!!  There's a song that keeps singing in my soul....

Since Jesus Passed By

Like the blind man, I wondered so lost and undone
A beggar so helpless, without God or His Son
Then my Savior, in mercy, heard and answered my cry
And oh, what a difference since Jesus passed by


CHORUS:
Since Jesus passed by, since Jesus passed by
Oh, what a difference since Jesus passed by
Well, I can’t explain it and I cannot tell you why
But oh what a difference since Jesus passed by


All my yesterdays are buried in the deepest of the sea
That old load of guilt I carried
It’s all gone, praise God I’m free
Looking for that bright tomorrow where no tear will dim
The eye
And oh, what a difference since Jesus passed by


CHORUS:
Since Jesus passed by, since Jesus passed by
Oh, what a difference since Jesus passed by
Will I can’t explain it and I cannot till you why
But oh, what a difference
Oh yes, my soul is singing
Oh, what a difference since Jesus passed by
