03. The Blessing

The Blessing
by John Waller



 

Let it be said of us while we walked among the living
Let it be said of us by the ones we leave behind
Let it be said of us that we lived to be a blessing for life
Let it be said of us that we gave to reach the dying
Let it be said of us by the fruit we leave behind
Let it be said of us that our legacy is blessing for life

This day, You set life, You set death right before us
This day, every blessing and curse is a choice now
And we will choose to be a blessing for life

Let it be said of us that our hearts belonged to Jesus
Let it be said of us that we spoke the words of life
Let it be said of us that our heritage is blessing for life

We will choose to be a blessing for life
‘Cause blessings and curses are choices
‘Cause blessings and curses are choices
Will we build up, tear down, the moment of truth is now

For your Kingdom
For our children
For the sake of every nation

We will choose to be a blessing for life, for life
Blessing for life

Behind the Song:
'I lived 20 years of my life struggling with depression and handling it with medication. God delivered and healed me 3 ½ years ago. Depression has run through my family for generations. As a young boy, my family told me that I had this illness too, I believed it and therefore it became real in my life. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so he is.” Jesus bore this curse along with every other at the cross. When I began to believe His reality, my reality changed. It’s so important that we speak truth and blessing over our spouses, children and everyone else. The power to bless and to curse is in the tongue. I figured it was time for this truth to be said in a song.' - John Waller
