One more thing...
just got back from walking and heard this song...I think maybe for the first time...anyway...check out these lyrics of "Opposite Way"
Living in the same town
For all these years
Doing the same old things
Hanging with the same crowd
And it’s starting to get crippling
You’ve never felt in place
And you tell yourself it’s all okay
But something’s different today
You want to run the opposite way
And it seems like you’re locked in a cage
And you need to find a way of escape
When everyone is setting the pace
It’s okay to run the opposite way
The Father sent His Son down
The light of men
The cross He bore was crippling
Rejected in His own town
They couldn’t see the (sun) Son shining
He knelt in the garden and prayed
Father, let this cup pass from me
It’s not Your will for me to stay
Your will for me is the opposite way
And it seemed like He was locked in a cage
And He couldn’t find a way of escape
But through the cross He conquered the grave
My Jesus ran the opposite way
Oh, and through the cross He conquered the grave
Oh, He ran the opposite way
Yeah, through the cross He conquered the grave
So we could run the opposite way!!!
WOW!!! Praise His Blessed...Holy...Name!!!
I have chills...'cause I'm listening to it on MySpace as I write this!!!

Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
