Where You'll Find Him...

Where You’ll Find HimI tend to worry about the people that I love, whether family or friends. I worry about whether or not they really know who Jesus is and believe in Him. I have frequently and commonly seen people that I knew who were raised in religious families who talked as if they were Christians yet one day stood out and said “I don’t believe that” for whatever reason. Sometimes this reason is because some other professing Christian in their life ended up letting them down or lying to them or bearing a false witness of Christ to them so that they fell away thinking it is all wrong, all fake, all a lie. This, over my life, has put a burden on me to be the best Christian I can possibly be so that I will hopefully not be one of those Christians who leads anyone astray yet, as a human being, I realize it is impossible to be perfect. I will mess up my witness, I have messed up my witness, and this scares me. What if that is the one time they are looking at me to decide whether or not they believe? Well the Lord knows this burden on my heart and lead me to read Romans 1:19-20 with fresh eyes. It says “because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead....” After reading this I felt a huge sense of relief. My God is continuously, day and night, showing Himself to each and everyone through His creation. It is a constant un-adulterated revelation of our Creator. It was through this thinking that I was lead to write the song “Where You’ll Find Him.” Pointing to the trees and their constant praise, the ocean and it’s beauty, stars and their grandness and saying to anyone that doesn’t know Him, “Look here. Look at these things and you will see who He is. He is our Creator.”

Below are the lyrics to my song and you can go to my music page for a listen :)

Where You’ll Find Him Sarah MacIntosh

Verse 1: I ask but you’ve said no I’ll keep repeating I cant believe that still You’ve yet to see Him He’s all around you Right here beside you

Chorus: Stars that’s where you’ll find Him Trees listen they’re shouting We are made by Him who created the heavens Leaves can't cease their clapping Wind twirling and dancing They never stop their praise to our King of Glory

Verse 2: You search and you will find Your Maker’s calling Another step and then There’s no more falling He’s all around you Right here beside you

Bridge: So will you listen Will you be watchful Oceans they glisten See how they sparkle The movement’s for Him In adoration of Him The creation of His Reaching back for Him

Outro: Every knee will bow Every tongue confess that He’s the Lord, He’s the Lord
