It’s been a rough weekend here in the Wild, Wild West. Emotionally.
As I was vacuuming, dusting and cleaning the bathroom, (always good for musing over spiritual things) I was listening to Keith Green. I don’t ever suggest listening to Keith Green if all you want is music to tap your foot to. His lyrics are deep and can be life altering. Be prepared with tissues to bawl your eyes out over your sin and the condition of the world.
So, that’s what I was doing. My heart is so heavy for many, including my family. Our Bible study has been praying for the birth of a teen group here in town. Then the songs start to hit me:
“Oh Lord! There’s so much work to be done.
Oh Lord! So many souls to be won.
Seems this world is falling apart
Dying of love from a broken heart.”
The world is sleeping in the dark,
That the church can’t fight, cause it’s asleep in the light,
How can you be so dead, when you’ve been so well fed,
Jesus rose from the grave, and you, you can’t even get out of bed,
Oh, Jesus rose from the dead, come on, get out of your bed.
