Hope you have had an awesome week! Mine was a blast! I had to miss out on Mystery Monday because they went zip lining. Unfortunately I get lower back pain and the last time I did it, it was quite painful! But besides missing that I had a great week with my friends and being able to do life with them as Link Year comes to an end! Ahhh so only two more blogs. Can ya’ll live without them?? Haha just kidding but I just might miss writing them!
Well this week Joe White came and spoke to us as well as Tim Watson. Something that stood out to me was when Joe White gave an illustration of how we could compare our life to the show “The Voice”. Which I’m sure you have heard of! If not… then you are wrong. Haha just messing. I haven’t even watched it this year. But just in case there is a sad reader reading this, who has no idea what the show is about… I will tell you. Haha there are four big celebrity singers and each will form teams of singers that they will coach and mentor throughout the competition. In order for the most talented to be picked, the audition process is blind…the coaches have their backs turned and can only hear the singers performing without seeing them. So basically, if they like the voice they punch their button and their chair turns around while lighting up, “I want you!”. Picture yourself on that stage right now… except instead of you singing and it being about your voice, (thank goodness because I’m awful) it’s about your life and how you are living and what you are living for. The four judges in the chairs are God, Jesus, your future spouse, and kids. Take a moment and think about how you live your life right now. Like really… do it!! Just like the people on “The Voice” have one song to try to get the judges to turn around, you have one life. Is your life going to make those judges I named turn around and say, “I want you!”? I don’t know about you… but I want all of them to turn around and say they want me! I want them to see my ‘lifesong’ and be proud to turn that chair around and claim me to be on their team. You know… the cool thing about singing God’s song is that it’ll have all four chairs turning around at once. Reality is, when we go to Heaven we will be judged. 1 Corinthians 5:10, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.” Whether you choose to believe it or not, it is going to happen!! I promise. But I have amazing news for you that we can’t be reminded of enough. God sent his son Jesus to die a terrible death on a cross for our sins so that we could have a relationship and be able to live a life for Him! Right now is our time to decide what our ‘lifesong’ is going to be about… and if it’ll be a song (life) that will glorify and honor God. I want all four chairs to turn around for me. My future husband and kids to see that my ‘lifesong’ is for Jesus. And at the end of it, be able to make the team… the team that will be able to spend eternity in Heaven with my Father. What a great day that will be!!! And it will all have been worth it. You have a choice right now to determine what your ‘lifesong’ is about. And you only have one chance to turn those chairs around. I pray and challenge myself and you to sing a ‘lifesong’ that is glorifying and honoring to God. And you can start that song today! Don’t wait. You only have one shot at it! One song, one life. Who are you going to sing it for??
Thanks for reading this weeks blog! I can’t believe I only have one more week after this. Wow. What a blessing this year has been! Life changing! I ask for prayers that my heart will be prepared to let go of this place. It’s going to be tough. God bless!
