Inspirational Song for Today: “Family Tree” by Matthew West

I heard this song and it’s lyrics really touched me. I can tell you that none of our lives are perfect with various dysfunctions in our families.  But we can overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. God is the Root and He wants to bring healing to His children.

“Family Tree” by Matthew West

You didn’t ask for this… nobody ever would.
Caught in the middle of this dysfunction.
It’s your sad reality… it’s your messed up family tree.
And all you’re left with all these questions.

Are you gonna be like your father was and his father was?
Do you have to carry what they’ve handed down?

No, this is not your legacy… this is not your destiny.
Yesterday does not define you.
No, this is not your legacy… this is not your meant to be.
I can break the chains that bind you.

I have a dream for you… it’s better than where you’ve been.
It’s bigger than your imagination.
You’re gonna find real love and you’re gonna hold your kids.
You’ll change the course of generations.

Oh, this is not your legacy… this is not your destiny.
Yesterday does not define you.
No, this is not your legacy… this is not your meant to be.
I can break the chains that bind you.

‘Cause you’re my child… you’re my chosen.
You are loved… you are loved.
And I will restore all that was broken.
You are loved… you are loved.

And just like the seasons change winter into spring.
You’re bringing new life to your family tree now.
Yes, you are, you are…

Oh, oh, ooh…
Oh, this will be your legacy…. this will be your destiny
Yesterday did not define you.
Oh, this will be your legacy… this will be your meant to be.
I can break the chains that bind you…

And just like the seasons change… winter into spring…
You’re bringing new life to your family tree now.

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelation 12:11
