There Is A Line

I remember hearing a song years ago (like 19 or 20) by an artist named Susan Ashton called, “There Is A Line”. I remember letting the words of that song settle in my soul. These are strong convictions. You hear and see it on YouTube here.

 It’s hard to tell just when the night becomes the day
That golden moment when the darkness rolls away
But there is a moment none the less.
In the regions of the heart there is a place

A sacred charter that should not be erased
 
It is the marrow; the moral core that I can not ignore.
Within the scheme of things
Well I know where I stand
My convictions they define who I am
Some move the boundaries at any cost
But there is a line, I will not cross
 
No riding on the fence – no alibis
No building on the sands of compromise
I won’t be borrowed and I can’t be bought
There is a line, I will not cross.
 
Ask the ocean where the water meets the land
He will tell you it depends on where you stand
And you’re neither right or wrong.
But in the fathoms of the soul that won’t ring true
Cause truth is more than an imposing point of view
It rises above the changing tide
As sure as the morning sky.
Within the scheme of things 
Well I know where I stand
My convictions they define who I am
Some move the boundaries at any cost
But there is a line, I will not cross
I won’t be borrowed and I can’t be bought
There is a line, oh, there is a line
There is a line, I will not cross.

 Solomon said it this way….

“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path”
 1 My son, remember what I say, and treasure my commands.
 2 Obey my commands, and you will live.
       Guard my teachings as you would your own eyes.
 3 Remind yourself of them;
       write them on your heart as if on a tablet.
 4 Treat wisdom as a sister,
       and make understanding your closest friend.
 5 Wisdom and understanding will keep you away from adultery,
       away from the unfaithful wife and her pleasing words. (Proverbs 7: 1-5 NCV)

 I want to be strong and faithful to His Word and His Ways all the rest of my days!! 

Pressing On!
