TSMS- Make my life a prayer and I refuse



I have been having a spiritual crisis lately. Its so hard to believe that God cares for me when I haven't really experienced anyone on Earth like that. I am a person who needs proof and so I have been struggling the past week or so. It seems like I keep bumping into songs about service so I think maybe if I find a way to be of service I will find the solution to my problems. Here are 2 songs I found on the same day with the same theme to them.


Make My Life a Prayer

Make my life a prayer to you
I wanna do what you want me to
No empty words and no white lies
No token prayers no compromise

I wanna shine the light you gave
Thru your son you sent to save us
From ourselves and our despair
It comforts me to know you’re really there

Chorus
Well I wanna thank you now
For being patient with me
Oh it’s so hard to see
When my eyes are on me
I guess I’ll have to trust
And just believe what you say
Oh you’re coming again
Coming to take me away





I Refuse lyrics

Sometimes I,
I just want to close my eyes
And act like everyone’s alright
When I know they’re not.
This world needs God
But it’s easier to stand and watch.
I could pray a prayer and just move on
Like nothing’s wrong.

But I refuse.

‘Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care.
I don’t want to say another empty prayer.
Oh, I refuse to
Sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself.
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse.

I can hear the least of these
Crying out so desperately,
And I know we are the hands and feet
Of you, oh God.
So, if you say move,
Then it’s time for me to follow through,
And do what I was made to do.
Show them who you are.


[From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/j/josh-wilson-lyrics/i-refuse-lyrics.html]
‘Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care.
I don’t want to say another empty prayer.
Oh, I refuse to
Sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself.
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse.


To stand and watch
The weary and lost
Cry out for help.
I refuse
To turn my back
And try and act like all is well.
I refuse
To stay unchanged,
To wait another day,
To die to myself.
I refuse
To make one more excuse.

‘Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care.
I don’t want to say another empty prayer.
Oh, I refuse to
Sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself.
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse.

Two great songs. I feel a little bit of your struggle, not that I haven't had love but that I come from a fairly legalistic background and most praise came with a "but". So unconditional acceptance is what I struggle with. Over the last few years I've been learning to rest in God's love without "doing" to earn it. Thanks for sharing these songs. Blessings for your weekend.

Those are both great songs! I know what you mean, though. I've been there at times. I think service is a great option. That is what I decided. And the Lord has blessed that decision immensely. I pray He does the same for you.

(((Hugs)))

Thru your son you sent to save us`

I had been having a hard time spiritually, too, but I think I've taken a turn! Isn't it amazing how He's always there waiting for us to come back?
Have a great weekend!
