Casting Crowns - Just Another Birthday



  • 2015-04-11T05:53:41

Very tough to hear this song and listen to the words watching this video... Today is my husband's birthday... Not mine but this song effects me with tears because I went through this in a way and Jesus was always there for me... I was a young teen mother, going through this and he blessed me with a young man to support me and be there for me through thick and thin... We were married with two daughters... and 34 years passed... then he did too 10 years ago... But he came to know the LORD and I am thankful for that and all the years we had together... Now I am alone but not completely for I have the Lord and my husband in Spirit watching over me... Still the tears do fall

I've been raising my granddaughters for years and the mother doesn't hardly call so I know what you mean. Only prayer can change them, it's so sad that it does to the children though. But God bless you for doing their job. Jesus said what you've done to the least of these you've done to me.

I have been where you have been! I left him when my daughter was two! My son was a baby and never remembered him! I tried to leave many times! It was not something that is easy when you are in an abusive relationship! Why? They CONTROL! When I was caught leaving, it was one of the 2 times I begged him for my life! He almost ended my life! Steel toed boots bring that day to my thoughts every time! A fetal position I lay on the floor! Begging him to stop as steel toed boots he wore went non stop to my face, head, and body while his Mother&Sister stood in the doorway and did nothing! All because I found the courage to leave him! I did leave him that day! For the hospital and a face un-recognizable! Bro*en facial bones, concussion, bro*en ribs etc. It did not end with him there either! I had to move to a state I had never been with my 2 youngest! Worse I left behind My first born son with my first husband I married 3 days out of high school! His father was a GOOD&DECENT man and My Son was safer and around Love and a Grandfather that had a bond with my son as no other! So to *eep two safe I had to leave and miss being their for him in an instant! He will always have a gap he should never of had, just as my other 2 should never of had! I have yet to forgive myself, for what my babies lost! Not sure why I went down this road so easily at your comment Sylvia!? God bess you ALL!

I cried when I saw Just Another Birthday! My 2 youngest children went through this growing up! There was always that gap I could never fill! No child should have to be without a parent! So to those who raise a child as your own for whatever reason, Its a selfless beautiful thing you are doing! I have been a single parent most of their life and I always felt I fell short for the things I could not do, that only a Father could! I also hold onto the guilt of wor*ing all the time to provide for them because I felt as if both Parents were removed! I was not their enough, I should have been their for MORE of their needs when they needed me most! I missed so much that way! Yes, I still hold onto that & need to let God have it, and I pray I shall!

You are My favorite Christian Group! The Lord is so obviously within all you do! When you sing, I feel the Lord! Your audience does too! There hands raise to the Lord and you feel the Lord within them! You are an inspiration to all!

My grandson is raising his 3yr old son, he's a very young dad, but doing an awesome job, I could'nt be more proud of him, as they say, he stepped up to the plate, and accepted his responsibility, what a blessing he, and his son are to our family.

this song is heartfelt and believe it or not when I first heard this song I cried til my eyes was red.

I don't understand how someone can turn their backs on their child. I know from my experences.That as a GODLY man. That I have a responsibilty to help with the rasing of my neices and nephews. Since I don't have kids of my own. The bond that I have with my neices and nephews is so strong that every time I'm away from them. I start to tear up and long for their touch. Long to hear their voice and long to see their smiling faces.

I believe this song reaches to so many people...some I know my self and many other people.... there are so many persons this can relate too. But I thank God for people like Casting Crowns to write a song that reaches cultures, countries and generations to come. I also thank God for being a father to me and many other's, when our dads where not there for us when we need them the most.

Thank you Lord, because you have gotten so many strong women through all of those burdens and hard times like you continue to do now and will keep on doing until your Son's return!

Watching this makes me realize that the Sacrifice I made so I could be with my son instead of working on the road and just calling him was worth it. I may have lost a better paycheck but some investments are eternal.

Very powerful song and video. I counsel at a pro-life clinic and sadly, have seen many young women with similar stories. Fathers, please realize how much your daughters need your love.
