"Do Life Big"

It seems every day this past week, I've heard of an accident, death or shooting. There were local deaths and deaths across the world in France and elsewhere in the world. It can be disheartening to hear about over and over and over. As a Christian, I wonder what God is doing, what is He trying to show us. It seems that the world has gotten farther and farther away from God even just during my lifetime (40 + years). While I don't understand it all, I know God is in control. I believe with all my heart that there is something He is doing in all of it. All of the chaos, the loss of life, the head-shaking stories of accidents. He is working.

I've had this song rolling around in my head all week, so I will share it with you now. It's message struck me last week. I want to love, serve and give to God every chance I get, I want to "do live big." I hope many others that I know will desire to do the same. Maybe this will impact a change in your life or heart, I really hope so. I have considered getting off of Facebook and even to stop blogging this past week. The world doesn't need more media. More time to stare at a screen. I need to look into my children's eyes and enjoy the time I have with them NOW. Time really is fleeting. I feel it so with my teenage daughter. She is 17, and I really don't know how that happened. I know I've lived each day of her life with her, but it is kind of a blur at the same time. There are other songs I may share about that message at a later time. I hope my rambling is making sense. I have so much on my heart today. I am happy in my corner of the world, but there is also sadness mixed in too. Part of me wants to shield my family from the world, but I know God wants us as Christians to be a light in the lost world for Him. I hope you will join me in doing life BIG!




"Do Life Big"

I gotta slow down,
Stop for a second,
Take a look around,

And I gotta take time,
To hear that little voice inside,

Saying I came to give you life,
So spread your wings and fly,
I've got a secret to share,
You are enough to change the atmosphere,

So go and do life big, big
I wanna do life big, big

Break out them blue skies,
I can feel my heart beating inside,
Yeah, it's like a new day,
Woke up to hear You say,

I came to give you life,
So spread your wings and fly,
Now go and show no fear,
You are enough to change the atmosphere,

So go and do life big, big
I wanna do life big, big

Oh, I wanna love, wanna give every day I live,
I wanna do life big,
I wanna love, serve, and give every chance I get,
I wanna do life big,
Oh, I wanna love, wanna give every day I live,
I wanna do life big,
I wanna love, serve, and give every chance I get,
Oh I wanna do life
I wanna do life big, big

I wanna do life big, big
I wanna do life big, big

I wanna love like You,
I wanna give like You,
Oh, I wanna do life big,
I wanna serve like You,
Lay down my life like You,
I wanna do life big...

I wanna do life...
I wanna do life...
I wanna do life big.
I wanna do life...
I wanna do life...
I wanna do life big.

Romans 1:16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.

John 13:1
[ Jesus Washes His Disciples’ Feet ] It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.

2 Corinthians 13:14
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

Galatians 5:6
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
