Jericho

Have I mentioned lately that it’s been a crazy week? I know it’s Recipe Friday, but I just don’t have a recipe to share today. Last night as I drove home from a late-night work meeting, I was listening to my Trevor Morgan CD. I decided I wanted to share the song “Jericho” for my post today. I was only able to find a live version on YouTube, but it sounds pretty good. But I also wanted to share the lyrics.

Jericho, by Trevor Morgan

I see your sunrise
In my dark skies
But I’m not ready for the day

Cause I can’t hide
In your light
No, I can’t keep you away

I hunker down behind my walls
But your love’s a wrecking ball

CHORUS
And I’m just like Jericho
You’re marching around
My defenses are tumbling down

Yeah, I’m just like Jericho
You’re marching around
My defenses are tumbling down

I feel your warm breeze
Through my bare trees
Chasing winter with your spring

I fought the good fight
Thinking I was right
To push away your offering

I kept my guard up through it all
But I am ready now to fall

CHORUS

I can feel your attack
My foundation cracks
But I’m not fighting back
No, I won’t fight you back
This is what I needed all along
So break me down and build me back up strong

CHORUS

    Thanks, Linda

    Beautiful song 🙂

    When I saw the heading, I too wondered what the recipe was going to be. lol. I thought Jericho was some kind of flat bread/cracker/cookie type thing. 🙂 :- ) Talk about creatures of habit… I guess He really needs to break me and make me into what He wants me to be.

    Blessings,

  4. Thank you for sharing Jericho with us, Linda. So beautiful, in that honest heart way. You had Aubrey and I swaying and singing along. 🙂 Praying all my defenses fall before Him today.
    God bless you and give you strength and love for your days!
    p.s. you really had me wondering for awhile . . .how do you cook Jericho? What’s in it? I’ve never heard of this dish!

    • Deb, You are so funny! “How do you cook Jericho?” That’s hilarious. We are such creatures of habit, even in our expectations. If only we could translate that into our expectations of God’s blessings, that we might expect them always. I’m glad you and Aubrey liked this song. It brought tears to my eyes the first time I heard it and still does when I stop to listen closely. My walls are smaller these days, and I hunker down behind them less often, but I am still in need of His wrecking ball sometimes. Peace, Linda
