When they see me, do they see You?

Music convicts me.  I love singing at the top of my lungs to my King (it’s not pretty, but its certainly joyful!). During worship, my surroundings fade away and the only thing I can focus on is Him. It’s cliche, but I love standing with arms high and heart abandoned in awe of God. In these moments I feel closest to Him.

The most convicting song to me of recent is “Live Like That” by Sidewalk Prophets. I want to be remembered for sharing the good news of the Gospel and living a Christ-like life. I want my life to be a reflection of the love Christ has shown for me. I want my life to be an arrow pointing straight to the cross. I want to be a light in the dark. I want to be more of Him and less of me. “Live Like That” reminds me of my life’s ultimate goal. It reminds me that to that one person, I may be the only glimpse of Jesus they ever see and that it can be life altering if my life is evidence of the grace of God. 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

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

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

If love is who I am
Then this is where I’ll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that
I want to live like that

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

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

If love is who I am
Then this is where I’ll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that
I want to live like that

I want to show the world the love You gave for me
I’m longing for the world to know the glory of the King

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

If love is who I am
Then this is where I’ll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that
I want to live like that
