Jill Phillips Album: Writing on the Wall Track: Sacred
About the song: A song about the benefits of patience and not compromising your beliefs for a quick payoff. I am a firm believer in looking at the long term benefit of decisions. The Bible says that Christ, for the joy set before Him, endured the cross, scorning it's shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father. He didn't have to suffer and die, but His eyes were on the joy set before Him and the hope He could bring to all of us by enduring. I think that is amazing and I try to remind myself of these things when I feel impatient.
Lyrics: It's the cliched writing on the wall Funny how it's been there all along And all the while you've listened to Anyone who had a point of view on what you should do The liars in your head are growing loud They say you're in too deep to turn back now And answers seem so hard to find You wonder if you still can change your mind... change your mind
There's something to be said for patience So hold on to what you know is sacred Don't let your only dream be taken And cashed in for everything you've hated
You have something there that can't be sold A lifetime full of secrets to be told And it is not too late to choose The narrow winding way that few men do... so few men do
