Coincidence...I think NOT!

Okay so.....EVERY time I am in the car.....EVERY TIME.....I hear the Casting Crowns song....Until the Whole World Hears. If you have never heard it....it is a great one. Here it is:

I told my sister, Kaitlin, about this coincidence (ha) a couple weeks ago and I have been informing her everyday when the song comes on. I mean....I was even talking to my other sister, Chrysti, on the phone and she was in the car and the song was on....I started cracking up. Kaitlin suggested that I pray about it and see what I might get from it. Today, after I texted her to let her know the song was, yet again, playing. I really listened to the song, to the words.

Lord I want to feel your heart
and see the world through your eyes
I want to be your hands and feet
I want to live a life that leads

Ready yourselves
Ready yourselves
Let us shine the light of Jesus in the darkest night
Ready yourselves
Ready yourselves
May the powers of darkness tremble as our praises rise
Until the whole world hears Lord we are calling out
Lifting up Your name for all to hear the sound
Like voices in the wilderness we're crying out
as the day draws near
we'll sing until the whole world hears

Lord let your sleeping giant arise
Catch the demons by surprise
Holy nation sanctified
Let this be our battle cry

Chorus

We'll sing until the whole world hears
We'll sing until the whole world hears

Want to be your hands and feet
Want to be a life that leads
To see you set the captive free
Until the whole world hears
and I pray that they will see more of you and less of me
Lord I want my life to be the song You sing
Until the whole world hears Lord we are calling out
Lifting your name up for all to hear the sound
Like voices in the wilderness we're crying out
as the day draws near
we'll sing until the whole world hears


And for some reason one line really jumped out at me....brought me to tears immediately.

"Lord I want my life to be the song You sing"
I want my life to be one that praises Him, that He would be proud of. I want my marriage to include God, to be at its center, I want Him to be my center, my strength. I want Him to plan my life, not me. I want my daughter to be blessed by His blessings. I want my Husband's heart to be full of Him! I want, I want, I want.....I want Him! And so I cried tears of joy. Cried because it makes complete sense. Cried because it is truly a beautiful thing to love Him and praise Him. God is GOOD!
