Give My Life to You

You see a hurting soul on the street and think he was meant to find someone else. Watch as daggering words are thrown across a room and remember they can be forgiven but never erased. You could intervene, speak now, but instead shrink back into the solace of self. Why do we often feel God is calling everyone but us to make a difference in the world? Why do their qualifications appear adequate and ours don’t make the cut?

You are in no way unqualified for the work God is calling you to do. The world may look down on your weakness, but God sees you as a prime opportunity to display His power—Bursting forth like a floodlight through one humble soul.

We’re only given one shot to make an impact on the world before we have to leave it. This day will never happen again. Every word you speak cannot be taken back and every good deed you pass up may never be accomplished. Please, love with an urgency because there is not much time left. God is calling you out of the comfortable, out of the familiar into the great unknown. It may seem frightening but isn’t regret more? Salvation pours down from Heaven, falling from the scars of Jesus Christ. Don’t let anyone leave your presence without this hope.

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
 because the Lord has anointed me
 to proclaim good news to the poor. 
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
 to proclaim freedom for the captives
 and release from darkness for the prisoners -Isaiah 61:1

They sharpen their tongues like swords
 and aim cruel words like deadly arrows. – Psalm 64:3

If you are filled with light, with no dark corners, then your whole life will be radiant, as though a floodlight were filling you with light. – Luke 11:36

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16

Featured song: Give my Life to You by Elevation Worship

I can hear you
You’re calling my name
The ocean between us erased

And salvation
It pours down like rain
Flooding my walls till I break

I give my life to you
My heart to you
You’re all I need
Come and make me new[2x]

I abandon
The weight of my sin
The weight of my loss and my pain

Relief swells
Like air in my lungs
And freedom releases my shame

Jesus Christ, take our lives
We won’t waste another day
Holy God, fill our hearts
We won’t ever be the same>
