Live Like That

Sometimes I think
What will people say of me
When I'm only just a memory
When I'm home where my soul belongs
Was I love
When no one else would show up
Was I Jesus to the least of us
Was my worship more than just a song

I want to live like that
And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You
If love is who I am
Then this is where I'll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back
I want to live like that
I want to live like that

Am I proof
That You are who you say You are
That grace can really change a heart
Do I live like Your love is true
People pass
And even if they don't know my name
Is there evidence that I've been changed
When they see me, do they see You

I want to show the world the love You gave for me
I'm longing for the world to know the glory of the King

Have you ever had any of those same questions? Do you ever wonder what people will say of you when you are “home where my soul belongs”? Do you ever wonder if you were Jesus to the least of us? Do you live like God’s love is true? Is there evidence that you’ve been changed?

I’m not always living the way I should…I’m far from perfect and it shows every single day.
This song has really stuck out to me recently. I want to give all I have to God. I want everything I do to point to God. I want to never hold back from Him.

I recently finished reading Kisses from Katie. In the book she talked about how every day she would tell God she’s available to Him. That He could use her in any way He wanted with whoever He wanted. I’ve started praying that myself…and adding that I would obey God. A lot of times I might feel a little nudge to go serve that person, to talk to the visitor…but I give excuses and I don’t do it. And now I wonder what things would have been like if I actually did do what I knew I should have. I think honestly if I responded and obeyed every time I felt that “nudge” my life would be so different!

I know I’ll fail…a lot…I may never get much better at responding to the “nudge”…but hopefully just writing this all out to my bloggy friends will sink it in my mind better. Maybe I’ll get more of a guilty feeling when I start giving my excuses and start obeying…. ;).
