When They See Me, Do They See You

Last night was special. Quinn, my 16 yr. old son, and I sat in the hot tub and talked about the things that matter in life. We listened to the song "Live Like That". The lyrics put tears in my eyes because it is so my heart's desire to live like the song says. We talked about how if everyone started each day listening to this song the world would be a different place.

All the words touch my heart but the line that brings tears to my eyes and I feel in my soul is this: 

"When they see me, do they see You".

WOW. Today, I can ask God to help me to live in such a way that His love for others comes through me! Will I do it perfectly - not a chance. Will I give it all I can - you bet! 

I LOVE Christian music. Lyrics to songs often bring me to tears and remind me to put God in the #1 spot in my life. What is it for you? What inspires you to want to become more like Jesus? Is it serving others, reading your Bible, walking in the woods..... whatever it is that motivates you to put God first -

do it and do it often. 

You, me and all Christians will never live flawlessly, but the closer we get to God the more we can "Live Like That". Let these lyrics get into your heart and change you. 

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 us
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 our 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
I want to live like that
