Revisited: Evidence


This post was originally from Fall 2022. I have listened to this song many times since. I'd also encourage you to very slowly read the Psalm verse at the end. Maybe read it twice, three times, or more. I hope you will wait for the Lord while also seeing him all around you.

I don’t buy the old adage that “hindsight is 20/20”. Would I really have behaved differently in my younger years if I knew who I’d be right now? What about those buckets of tears I cried over that guy in high school who, in hindsight, wasn’t a great choice from the beginning? Examples abound from mistakes to successes, but if I knew then what I know now, I would have missed so much!

I can’t quit thinking about the opening lyrics to Josh Baldwin’s song “Evidence”:


“All throughout my history Your faithfulness has walked beside me The winter storms made way for spring In every season, from where I'm standing I see the evidence of Your goodness All over my life, all over my life I see Your promises in fulfillment All over my life, all over my life…..”

If I'd just "known all along," I would have missed:

The pleasure He took in seeing my 6 or 7 year old self kneel at our Nativity scene and thank Him for sending Jesus. I still feel that pleasure from Him...

The protection during my college years, hearing Him tell me to “hold on”, He was with me...

The comfort as I walked through a tunnel of depression... When it was hard to know what to pray, He took my hand and sat with me.

The trust I have that as I continue to grieve a lost relationship, He sees me and holds me tenderly...

The hope I have for healing and restoration on many levels...

Psalm 27:13 reminds me: “I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.”
