This song is a beautiful reminder that life is more then just what happens in our own little corner. I have never had the opportunity to go overseas on a mission trip and have NEVER been to a third world country. Yet, watching this video made me realize that I have so many fears. I have so many selfish, irrational thoughts. I feel entitled sometimes to a life of ease and privilege because of who I am and where I live. How utterly disgusting is that? How unlike Christ is that attitude? God forgive me for thinking that I somehow have achieved something, earned something, deserve something.
My heart is pricked by this video. My mind challenged. My faith tested. I hope you enjoy the video. Sara Groves is one of my FAVORITE artists. Have a good day.
Here are the lyrics to I Saw what I Saw:
I saw what I saw and I can’t forget it
I heard what I heard and I can’t go back
I know what I know and I can’t deny it
Something on the road, cut me to the soul
Your pain has changed me
your dream inspires
your face a memory
your hope a fire
your courage asks me what I’m afraid of
(what I am made of)
and what I know of love
we’ve done what we’ve done and we can’t erase it
we are what we are and it’s more than enough
we have what we have but it’s no substitution
Something on the road, touched my very soul
I say what I say with no hesitation
I have what I have and I’m giving it up
I do what I do with deep conviction
Something on the road, changed my world....
