I Refuse!!!

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.
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.

I love this song. The words have such a beautiful meaning to me! For my life I WILL refuse to live without telling others about Christ!! I will be His hands and feet!

Will you join me??

Live a life of Love,
Grace

Every secret you have... He knows!

It struck me last  week-end how two things I knew about God changed my perspective on Him.  My church hosted the third Krave Conference. We brought in different churches and worshipped our Savior. The speaker was Bryant Bush (BB). One thing that he said I don't think I will ever forget!

A. God loves you! He sent His very own son to Earth to die for you! John 3:16 talks about that and how He did so that you can be with Him forever in Heaven. But the way love is used is amazing for a true biblical definition of love we turn to 1 Corinthians 13:13 "So these three things continue forever: faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love." In Matthew 17:20 Jesus talks about having faith as small as a mustard seed you can make mountains fall into the sea! And love is greater than that!! And God loves you SOO much!!

B. Most of y'all know but God knows everything about you.  Even how hairs are on your head! Psalm 139: 2-4 talks about He knows when you get up and lay down! He even knows the words you are going to say before they even escape your lips!! He knows everything! Even your deepest darkest secrets... Every mistake you ever made...

C. And those tegether make BAM! God knows all the awful and great things you have done. The secrets and the bad habits... And He STILL LOVES YOU JUST AS MUCH!!!

True love.
You'll find it in Christ alone.

My life in His hands,
Grace

Since I will die...

No matter what race, religion, or amount of money we will all die. I have made a decision for this year. (kind of a resolution for life)

-> #1 goal for Life<-
Since I will die one day I will take as many friends, family, enemies, and random people with me to see my Heavenly Father as possible, by leading them to the foot of the cross. I will try to take every oppurtunity possible to share the fire that burns in me with those I meet everyday.


I dare you to take up your cross and join in my pursuit to follow in the shadow of my Savior!!


Following my Leader,
Grace

They are going to DIE!

67% of the world is dying!! And they are going to keep dying if we keep on doing so little about it! I had this awful illness and I still struggle with it everyday. You probably have faced this sickness also. It is very dangerous and it takes over your life if you don't fight it daily! The good news is that I have found a cure! And many of y'all know the cure too... We are just afraid to share it. This disease is self, lies, cruelty, anger, and SIN. Jesus is the cure. If the world was physically dying and we knew the cure we would share it and distribute it like crazy. But when we know the meaning to life and the way to Heaven. We hide in the corner. Why? That gives you no benefit. It gives the world no benefit. And most importantly it gives GOD no benefit. God created you and you turned away. Then He sent the cure to our selfish disease in the form of His son. He gave up HIS SON! The least we can do is to tell everyone about Him. No matter what the circumstances. The cure is Jesus. Tell someone about it!!!

In Love With Him,
Grace
