I Want to Live Like That

Sometimes I think
What will people say of me
When I'm only just a memory
   When I'm home where my soul belongs 

We attend funerals fairly often and hear family tell all the great things about the one who has gone on to wait for them.  One cannot help but become reflective and wonder how it would be if it was their family and what they would say.

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 

If someone thinks of you, would they also automatically think of Jesus?  Were you Love, were you Jesus to the least of those, was your worship more than a song?

Better yet - ARE you Love, ARE you Jesus to the least of those, IS your worship more than just a song?

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 

When people look at you do they see that you doubt His faithfulness?  Are you living in fear of how tomorrow is going to work?  Or, are you proof that He is Who He says He is?

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 asked a question of the ladies last night at Bible study.  When your name is mentioned, do they think of Jesus?  Is your name ever used in the same sentence?  That needs to be our goal.  That we live like that.

I want to live like that

And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You 

I want to give it all I have.  I love this song by Sidewalk Prophets.  Love it.

Oh, sweet Jesus, 
everything I say and do, 
I want it to point to You.

What a great word! I think of this often, what will they remember, will they want to be like me, will they have fond memories, did they see Jesus, and did I glorify Him. It is a good thing to ponder. Thank you.

I tell you often that you are my angel on earth Carol. You have gotten me through so much without even being near. I think to myself....what would Carol do or say or feel? I love you more than you can imagine. You have given life and my relationship with Jesus so much meaning! And in thankful for you. You are the woman we can only strive to be. I love you!

I love love love this song! It plays at least 2 times a day in my classroom! I always sing it out, and my kids laugh at me. But I love it! I pray over the lyrics often. I want to live like that! And with my new stay at home mommy venture, I hope I am one step closer!
Thank you for always being there for me! you are a huge part of who I am today, because you were doing what God asked you to do! He spoke many good things from your lips into my heart!
