Servant

It’s been awhile since I’ve written and I have no excuse.  I’ve been busy, tired, and just not feeling it.  So, I’m trying to get back into it.  So, why now?  Yesterday, I was reminded, via music, about God‘s faith and how he doesn’t give up on us.  I’ll go into a little of how this all happened.

Yesterday morning, while I was in the shower, a song kept going through my head.  Not a song that I listen to often, but it kept going through my head, over and over.  At the time, I couldn’t even have told you who sang it.  I then got into the car and started up the CD that was already in the CD player.  I don’t often listen to my CDs, since I have my MP3 player, so it had been awhile.  What was the first song that came on?  This one:

God so loved, that He gave His son
To lay down His life for the sake of us
He bore the weight of our sin and shame
With a cry He said, It is finished

Christ the Lord overcame the darkness
He’s alive: death has been defeated

For He made us a way
by which we have been saved
He’s the Savior of the world
So we lift up a shout for his fame and renown
Praise the Lord
Praise the Lord
Jesus, Savior of the world

We must spread the word of His soon return
To reclaim the world for His glory
Let the church now sing of this coming King
Crowned with majesty, our Redeemer

And He reigns, ruler of the heavens
And His name is Jesus, the Messiah

Christ the Lord overcame the darkness
He’s alive: death has been defeated
And He reigns, ruler of the heavens
And His name is Jesus, the Messiah

Yes, good reminder.  But it didn’t stop there.  I then heard a song on the album, that reminded me of an absolutely fantastic young woman that I know, and admire.  That song was this one:
“All The Way”

We’re joining with You God
Everything You’re doing
Your fire is in our hearts
Burning for the broken
We open wide our arms
A refuge for the hurting
Your mercy is our song
We’re joining with You God

We’re going all the way
We’re gonna walk by faith
Giving You everything, everything, everything
We’re going all the way

Our strength, our victory
We can not be shaken
A light for all to see
Shining in the darkness
We can’t contain Your love
That purchased us our freedom
Salvation is our song
Our strength, our victory

We’re holding nothing back
Giving You everything, everything
We’re joining with You God
You can do anything, anything

So, why did this song remind me of this young woman?  This young woman graduated from high school a year ago, and God has put it on her heart to be a missionary.  She reflects the servant God wants us to be.  She has such a wonderful heart and soul, and I can only hope that my own girls grow up to be like her.  I respect all that this young lady does and goes through.  Listening to this song yesterday morning while running my errands, I started tearing up thinking about all she is doing, and will be doing.   Her heart is really full of God and his love and she lets that shine through in all she does.  I ask that you pray for her and her fellow students to follow God’s will and direction for them.
It reminds me that I don’t do nearly enough.  I’m not sure what I can do to reflect the same way she does, but I’m inspired to try.
As I need to get ready to the family BBQ for my kid’s school, I will leave it at this for now.  God bless!
