I Want to “Live Like That” (Sidewalk Prophets)

Deuteronomy 30:16 –

“For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.”

—————————————————————————–

Following up with worshiping God… my desire is for this… and to love God 24/7.

I want to live like that!

With all that I am…and the living example, everyone that I come in contact with should be able to tell that I’m a Christian. From the words that I use… to the love that I show… to every action that I do… people should be able to see Jesus in me.

Live Like That  (YouTube video)

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 those
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 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 live like that
I want to live like that

I want to show the world the love You gave for me
(I want to live like that)
I’m longing for the world to know the glory of the King

I want to live like that

———————————————-

Am I showing everyone… the love of God? From ‘the least of these’… to my co-workers… to my family.

With everything that I say and do… am I being the best example?

Are the words that come out of my mouth always positive and encouraging?

Do my actions have the purest intentions in mind?

You and me were bought at a price. A price that cost an innocent man, my Lord and Savior, His life.

He came to seek and save the lost… and for others to come into relationship and Know Him.

Is this the example that I am living and pointing others to Christ?

I want to live like that… do you?

I’m Baaaack! Please Join Me on this Great Adventure!

About 5 years ago, I was writing devotional-type blogs everyday…for almost 2 years straight.

It was “therapy” for me and brought me closer to God… when I felt so far away. I had just gone through a divorce and I wasn’t myself. Through prayer and a radical way of almost self-recovery…OK, it was God!, I brought 2 things that I love together (God & Christian music) to make it easier for me to continue in what I was doing and writing.

Though my writing was in email version (blogging was foreign to me then)…God used my love for writing and life lessons along with Christian music and the Bible to deepen my faith.

I begin the journey again… so join with me and saddle up your horses!
