How Far Is It?

Have you ever heard a song many times and thought you understood the true meaning of the song and then come to find out it was much deeper than you ever even realized it was?
Well that happened to me last night. I was driving home at about midnight
(What in the world was I doing out at midnight? That will be tomorrows post)
and I had the radio going pretty loudly to help keep me awake and focused on the road.
The song "East to West" song by Casting Crown came on the radio and I began to sing with it.  
And as I sang I discovered something amazing!
I discovered the truth of God's love for us in this song!
Here is the part that just finally hit me as to the true meaning of this song: 
"In the arms of Your mercy I find rest
'Cause You know just how far the east is from the west
From one scarred hand to the other"
Casting Crowns
As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.   
Psalms 103:12
Listen for yourselves, I hope you are as blessed by it as I was! :O)


  1. I know what you mean about hearing something differently or more deeply for its meaning~
    It is a beautiful song, and I'm so thankful He loves me that much! Hope you are doing well~ Hugs~

    1. Cathy~ Great to hear from you. I, too am thankful for God's love! I am doing pretty good. I am pretty tired but it's only because I have stayed up past midnight the last two days and I know that is not good for me. Tonight I will go to bed earlier. God bless~ Lisa :O)

  2. I had never heard of this song before--it is beautiful!

    1. Susan~ I am so glad that by me sharing you were able to find a great song. I have found so many great songs by people sharing them on Facebook. Thankful for that! God bless~ Lisa :O)

  3. I can relate to the feeling of suddenly understanding the words of a song or the words I just read... it's amazing! Thanks for sharing this song!
