I recently finished a Beth Moore Study called ‘Believing God.’ She certainly is a wonderful teacher and vibrant speaker/encourager. On the last night we watched her, via DVD, demonstrate how short our lives are by putting a sign post on one end of the stage that said ‘0 Years’ and another at the opposite end of the stage with ‘1000 years.’
In Scripture it says that 1000 years is as one day to God. There were three more sign posts, one saying ‘500 years’ in the middle of the stage, ‘250 years’ between the ‘0’ and ‘500 years,’ and ‘125 years’ between the ‘0’ and ‘250 years.’ The ‘0 years’ and ‘125 years’ sign posts were close enough together that Beth could touch both with her hands.
That’s our life in terms of eternity. It’s brief. Well, a few days later I was worshipping and praying and a my first song in Spanish was birthed. I had heard from a number of stores that their Spanish customers loved my videos and DVD’s. I found out they were being used in several churches in the Panama, Spanish Churches in the US and in missions trips to Hispanic Countries.
The song, inspired by Beth Moore’s class, is all about how our lives are short and belong to Him. I sang the song to a few Spanish friends. One of my prayer partners, Marion, corrected a few lines and that Sunday, my friend Esther, from Cuba, told me she thought the song would be well received in a Spanish Church she knows. Then, Rich, a dear brother who preaches at a soup kitchen for mostly hispanics loved it too. I’ve sung at his soup kitchen a number of times, in both English and Spanish.
It’s a song with simple chords and I have it here with both the audio and music. Since English is the language most of you speak, I translated it into English too.
HERE to both hear and see the music. Feel free to use it in personal or corporate worship.
