What Is Your Victory?

I am in love with a song by Gateway Worship called "O the Blood" (which you will be hearing later this week if you enjoy my Song Crushes). As I was listening to it yesterday, one line, a simple lyric, just about blew me away.

"Oh the Blood, it is my victory."

At face value I would say, yes the Blood is my victory. I know it is. I believe that it is. But I wonder if I live as if it is?

God brought to my mind yesterday the many things that are seemingly my victory...if you were to open the window of my life, of my heart, and take a quick peek.

--having kids that behave
--work accomplishments
--being the mom that can balance it all
--having people approve of me and like me
--a clean orderly house
--appearing to have it all together
and the list goes on...

Do those things, and many more, bring me victory? Do I allow such fleeting things to be the fullness and satisfaction in my life when ONLY the blood of Christ...the work of the Cross, can truly fill that void??? I know what I want my answer to be, yet I can't deny what it often is...

I literally just posted about that exact song. I was not at church the day that the band did it, but I ran across it when I was looking for something else. So good.
Love you!!
