This week I got a call from my mom urging me to turn to KLove that instant because her new favorite song was on. I could hear her singing to it in the background but I didn’t recognize it. So, I turned on Klove and I heard “Live Like That” by Sidewalk Prophets. No wonder she was demanding I turn on the radio that very instant–it’s an amazing song. On the drive back home today, I listened to that song for a straight hour; that shows you how much I love it.
I have been struggling lately over how I’m doing when it comes to showing Christ’s love to others. My time in college is going by so quickly and I want to make a difference in the lives of those around me. Sidewalk Prophets’ song really hits home. God has blessed my life in so many ways, and I want others around me to realize how wonderful it is to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The lyrics say it all–
“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”
The prayer of my heart is that God fills me with the strength, love, and wisdom to see those around me who are hurting and in need of a Savior. I don’t want to waste anymore time; I want to make a difference for Christ. In the end is doesn’t matter if I got perfect grades or I am the most popular girl on campus (which I am not by the way). The only thing that matters is if I shared Christ’s love with those around me.
“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’ll stand
Never holding back”
I am not perfect by any means, and the cool thing is that Christ can use anybody. He can even use me, an imperfect, fearful and goofy college student. God uses each and everyone one of us to make a difference for His kingdom. If we accept His call and challenge in our life, amazing things can happen! I want to live like that!
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
