There Is Victory
Life is filled with ups and downs galore, but one thing is promised to the child of God: Victory.
We have the victory because Christ gave it to us through his death on the cross. In our daily struggles we don't always see the victory. Sometimes we do, but it is often swallowed up in the next struggle.
Tidbits about this song:
The first verse was written on February 25, 2013.
The second verse and chorus on May 18, 2013.
And lastly the third verse was written on May 22, 2013.
(It never ceases to amaze me at how often a verse of chorus comes and then months, sometimes years, down the road the rest of the songs comes about.
The first verse was written from the view of Mary Magdalene. She watched Jesus die on the cross and then went to his grave after the sabbath was over, only to find him gone. She had loved the Lord so much as he had set her free from her own demons. It was through him she found peace in her life.
The second and third verse of course could be anyone of us. We travel this life without hope or peace and it isn't until we find the Jesus that we find what we are seeking. Only then can we have the victory over this world!
I hope you enjoy this new song!
