Frisco Depot
By Mickey Newbury

Frisco's a mighty long way
If you can afford to fly
But it might as well be the moon, Lord
When you're as broke as I

Here I sit with my head in my hands
Watchin' the trains roll by
Lord, the helpin' hand mission man warned me
That the nights here got cold

When you're cold there's nothin'
As welcome as sunshine
When you're dry there's nothin'
As welcome as rain

When you're alone there's nothin'
As slow as passin' time
When you're afoot, Lord
There's nothin' as fast as a train

Ol' Frisco's a mighty rich city
Now that ain't no lie
They have some buildings
That reach nearly a mile in the sky

Everyone's so busy
They can't tell me the reason why
Here's a world full of people
So many people alone

When you're alone
Life just don't seem worth livin'
While you're alive
Ya gotta learn to live with the pain

When you've been gone for so long
There's no one left for forgivin'
You find yourself searchin' your mind
For the links to the chain
“When you've been gone for so long,
there's no one left for forgivin'
You find yourself searchin' your mind
For the links to the chain”
Mickey Newbury, Frisco Depot
We believe in HOPE.
We believe in Jesus.
[Jesus] “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.”
Immediately, Zacchaeus got out of the tree and welcomed Jesus gladly.
The people saw this and began to mutter.
[Zacchaeus] “Look Lord, Here and now I give half my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.”
[Jesus] “Salvation has come to this home today, for this man has shown himself to be a true son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”
Short TAX COLLECTORS need LOVE, too!
We live in a reality of brokenness.
HOPE says, when Jesus defeated death and walked out of the tomb, that new life, eternal life, is the surrounding reality for those with
:: eyes to see,
:: ears to hear, and
:: faith to believe
that the death and resurrection of Jesus changes everything.
Through the grace of God, we BECOME something else.
We can follow Jesus away from our Frisco Depot.
Consider this for personal reflection this week ...
> How does the story of Zacchaeus bring you hope?
> Have you left your own version of Frisco Depot? or do you need to follow Jesus away from it?
