(musings on) My Life, a Living Bible

What is your life story teaching the world about God? You maybe the only bible someone 'reads'. And it maybe a brief read. As some say, first impressions can last a lifetime and those first impressions maybe the only impression some people may get of you and God. God can use our lives just where they are just as they are if we are open to His guidance. Do not try to be perfect, putting on a 'good front', because we are all sinful. Instead, let go and let God lead your life. Turn to Him and others will see and follow. The song For the Sake of the World by Bethel Live is my prayer for a life lived that catches others' hearts on fire for the one, true God. 

I'm laying down my life
I'm giving up control
I'm never looking back
I surrender all
I'm living for Your glory on the earth

This passion in my heart
This stirring in my soul
To see the nations bow
For all the world to know
I'm living for Your glory on the earth

For the sake of the world burn like a fire in me
Light a flame in my soul for every eye to see
For the sake of the world burn like a fire in me

For every knee to bow down
For every heart to believe
For every voice to cry out
Burn like a fire in me
For every tongue to confess
You alone are the King
You are the hope of the earth
Burn like a fire in me

2 Timothy 1: 6 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.

  1. So true. In this world people are looking for light, they just may not realize it. This is a great reminder for me.
