Outlive Your Life!

As many of you know that read my blog know two things
1) I LOVE Music!
2) I went to the Josh Wilson, Colton Dixon and Third Day Concert this past week

At my church, Madison Park Church of God, we have been studying Max Lucado’s book “Out Live Your Life”!  This book has reiterated some points to me about serving.  I am thankful that I grew up and served in an amazing church that made it a point to SERVE other’s!  Do you realize that there are people you can SERVE right around you!  You don’t have to go to a third world country to be used by God!  God can use YOU in your every day life!!! How cool is that!  Today as we were talking about our attitudes and how we can take it from,what is in it for me, to what can I do for you!?!  I think of how we worship!  When we WORSHIP and you raise your hands we are reaching OUT…saying “here am I SEND ME/USE ME!”  We don’t worship with our hands towards us but rather outwards.  Think about that the next time you raise your hands in worship.  Worship with your hands outward towards others!  Towards GOD!

This song “I REFUSE” really nails it on the head as to what we have been talking about.  How many times do we stand and watch instead of participate   Being used BY GOD is not a spectator sport it is a participant sport!  REFUSE to just move on but instead DO something about what is going on around you.  You don’t have to have money, you don’t have to be educated you don’t have to be anything but WILLING for God to use you!!!!!!!!!  What are you doing to do today that will make a mark for eternity?????

“I refuse” by Josh Wilson

Sometimes I
I just want to close my eyes
And act like everyone’s alright
When I know they’re not

This world needs God
But it’s easier to stand and watch
I could say a prayer and just move on
Like nothing’s wrong

But I refuse
‘Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care
I don’t want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse

I can hear the least of these
Crying out so desperately
And I know we are the hands and feet
Of You, oh God

So, if You say move
It’s time for me to follow through
And do what I was made to do
Show them who You are

‘Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care
[. From: http://www.elyrics.net .]

I don’t want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse

To stand and watch the weary and lost
Cry out for help
I refuse to turn my back
And try and act like all is well

I refuse to stay unchanged
To wait another day, to die to myself
I refuse to make one more excuse

‘Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care
I don’t want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse

I refuse
I refuse
