It Wasn't Me....

I went to that "Greater Vision" concert on Friday night with a group of people – boy, was that ever fun!! We had such a great time!
There was a group called “Crossing” that opened the concert for them – and they did a great job as well! The lead singer wrote a song called “It Wasn’t Me” – wow! There was such a powerful message contained in that song.

Let me explain. This was his illustration....

Growing up, one of my favorite phrases was: “It wasn’t me!” If cookies were missing out of the cookie jar, “it wasn’t me”; if the couch was torn, “it wasn’t me”; if there were muddy footprints all over the clean floor, “it wasn’t me”; if the flowers were trampled – “it wasn’t me”.
And then as I get older and realized that the adults around me aren’t as dumb as they look, I realized I can’t NOT take the blame for the wrong things I did. When I would wake up drunk in the middle of the bathroom, there was no way I could stumble to my feet, look at myself in the mirror and say “it wasn’t me”. When I cussed angry words at people there was no way I could later walk up to them and say “it wasn’t me”. When I smoked those cigarettes and used those drugs, there was no way I could explain to someone that “it wasn’t me”. When I lied to someone and it came back to bite me, there was no way I could look at the ones I’d hurt and say “it wasn’t me”.
But then there was that day when I crawled to the cross and asked Jesus to be my Savior... I was cleansed of all my past, present, and future sins, and made holy in the sight of Almighty God – NOW, and only now, I can stand before you and say that “It wasn’t me! It wasn’t me! It was HIM! I was hopeless and helpless of myself – there was nothing I could do of myself to merit the favor of God – I was lost, condemned, and headed straight for hell, but then Jesus stepped in! He took my place: when I should have been the one that climbed that hill to Calvary, HE was carrying MY cross upon HIS back – on which HE was nailed in MY place – taking MY sin upon HIS shoulders! It wasn’t me! It was HIM!

What an awesome God He is! What a wonderful, loving, compassionate, forgiving, gracious, merciful God He is! I am so thankful for my salvation.... So thankful! I hope you feel the same way!

If you're my friend on FaceBook, I posted some pictures! :)


  1. Thank GOD you realized your need for your Heavenly Father and crawled to the cross. What a precious moment in each of our lives when we realize our desperate state and fall into our Heavenly Father's arms.

  4. I thought this was funny and yet so powerful. I have 5 kids and I am always hearing, "it wasn't me!" But, thank God that when it comes to our salvation we can proudly say,"it wan't me!"

I am Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! I am intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. I have a good head on my shoulders, and oftentimes find myself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of ridiculousness. I take great pleasure in many things. I am proficient in nearly all of them, though I will never own it. Lest I seem too perfect, I have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves me very ill indeed.
