In my post last weekend I talked a bit about doing the things God calls you to, using the gifts He gave you, and not feeling guilty over saying ‘No’ to things that are outside what God has called you to. I’ve also been thinking about how we put restrictions on ourselves because of what someone will think or because of a written ‘rule’ that has been put in place by mere mortals. And also how I can spend so much time chasing that elusive ‘American Dream’ and miss the still small voice of God. I get so busy living life, getting done the things that have to be done, meeting every deadline in a breathless rush and hurrying on to the next one, that I forget to just live for God.
When I went to pick up the cupcakes for Larkes birthday party this week, she rode along. And she wanted to listen to the radio – like always. We heard this song from ‘The Newsboys’. We’d never heard it before though it’s been around for a couple months at least I think. I liked it, and I really want to live more this way. It’s all about HIM! I want to learn to know His voice so well that when I hear it I abandon everything and do what He wants me to do!
Live with Abandon
Chasing after this world makes me tired Praisin’ my own name leaves me dry
There’s gotta be so much more to life than this A higher calling that I missed I want my life to count, every breath
I wanna live with abandon Give You all that I am Every part of my heart Jesus I place in Your hands I wanna live with abandon
I’ll drop everything to follow You It’s only Your hands I hold onto
There’s gotta be more to life than this A higher calling that I missed I want my life to count, every breath
I’m not looking back I’m done with that Wanna give You all I have
Go here to listen to the song.
Have a Blessed Sunday.
