« Who are the invisible in your life? Tim Udouj | Main | The Song That I Sing - Cody Chambers »

January 11, 2010


Stumbled onto this and ot sure how all this blog and comments work but I have been struck by this verse countless times in my life yet each seems new and fresh. Maybe just timely as fresh isn't in my normal vocabulary. I must have grown up in the pue behind you getting pinched on the arm (in Christian love) by my mother whenever I was heard but not seen. I grateful for it though and did it to my girls.
The song always reminded me of my wandering heart which I was grateful for most of the time. Often it prompted a passion plea for God not to allow my heart to wander and to turn off my free will agreement. The song reminded me that my head seemed to be fettered to the less than the best even though my heart down deep was fettered to Him. I'm not in a "SBC" church and love the music but miss those hymns that challenged and convicted me weekly. Thanks for your thoughts.

Welcome to CGO

  • Welcome to Common Grounds Online. Readers of Common Grounds have suggested a website to continue the explorations they began in the book. In keeping with the interactions of Professor MacGregor, Brad, Lauren and Jarrod, the theme of this site is ‘learning and living the Christian story.’

    I have invited friends, and a few friends of friends, to communicate aspects of the Christian story that have been significant in their own lives. We’re all trying to find joy and pleasure in this life and the next, but often we forfeit the joy that could be ours by living out foolish, competing scripts. What distinguishes Common Grounds Online Contributors is not our own goodness, achievement or service, but rather the recognition of our need of God’s grace abounding in our lives.
