Music Monday: "Should've Been Me"

This is yet another song that I hear on the Christian radio station that I find to be convicting and fitting to my life. (Except for the love my wife part... I love my great husband!) But since thankfulness is a running theme on my blog, and this song speaks of thankfulness, I thought it was a prefect song to share with my blog readers too. I know that I easily forget that Jesus died for all of this He has blessed me with in my life. It is easy to get busy and not acknowledge God all day long. But it is not good! That is part of the reason that we have crosses hanging in each room in our home-- to remind us of Jesus and His sacrifice for me. What helps you remember His sacrifice?

"Should've Been Me"
Citizen Way

I've read the story
I've seen the movie
I give to charity
And tithe my ten percent
These I remember
But I so easily forget
All these years never heard it like this

It should've been me
It should've been us
Should've been there hanging on a cross
All of this shame
All of these scars
Should've been stains that were never washed
Why do I hide
Why do you try
Over and over and over again
I guess it just leaves saying thank God
It leaves me saying thank God, thank God
For the should've been

I live a good life
I love a great wife
Our kids are beautiful
We got friends down the street
If I'm so thankful
Why do I easily forget
That you died for all of this

For this heart you changed
This soul you raised
My God for taking my place
