Clear the stage (of your heart)

This is the most powerful song I have ever heard. When I heard it the first time, it brought me to my knees in repentance, and caused me to do some very intense soul searching.  It was the first time I think I ever realized the idols that were clouding my thinking, and a real realization of the proper place for my King in my life, thoughts and decisions.  If you want to hear the song you can go to www.rosskingmusic.com    As I post these words, I pray that we all remember that we need HIM to look into every part of us, and keep us aware of the things that so easily take HIS place, especially in western culture. 

Ross King-Clear the Stage

Clear the stage and set the sound and lights ablaze
If that’s the measure that it takes to crush the idols.
Chuck the pews and all the decorations too
Until the congregations few then have revival.
Tell your friends that this is where the party ends
until you’re broken for your sins you can’t be social.
Then seek the Lord and wait for what he has in store
and know that great is your reward and just be hopeful

Cause you can sing all you want to.
Yes you can sing all you want to
you can sing all you want to
And don’t get me wrong, worship is more than a song.

Take a break from all the plans that you made
And sit at home alone and wait for God to whisper.
Beg Him please to open up his mouth and speak
And pray for real upon your knees until they blister.
Shine the light on every corner of your life
Until the pride and lust and lies are in the open.
Then read the word and put to test the things you’ve heard
Until your heart and soul are stirred and rocked and broken.

Cause you can sing all you want to.
Yes you can sing all you want to
you can sing all you want to
And don’t get me wrong, worship is more than a song.

Anything I put before my God is an idol.
Anything I want with all my heart is an idol.
Anything I can’t stop thinking of is an idol.
Anything that I give all my love is an idol.
We must not worship something that’s not even worth it.
Clear the stage and make some space for the one who deserves it.

Cause I can sing all I want to.
Yes I can sing all I want to
I can sing all I want to
And still get it wrong, worship is more than a song.

And you can sing all you want to.
Yes you can sing all you want to
You can sing all you want to
But don’t get me wrong, worship is more than a song.

TT-step up to the microphone-Thank you God

microphone2.jpgI almost forgot about Testimony Tuesday!!  Anyone who knows me knows I am not a multi-task person, and although I like to thing that I am, the whole truth is that I am not.  Thinking along the lines of all that I am not in this world could be a total bummer, but instead, my focus is on all the things God can do (an tons of things I know nothing about).  Just to show you how simple minded I am, drinking my coffee this morning, Thank you God for the coffee bean, love this stuff!  Thank you God for the sun coming up and looking so very captivating, I am crazy about it!  Thank you for caring so much about us to give us color, and for the smiles on these childrens faces on the bus!  Thank you Lord for knowing me so well and loving me anyway!  Thank you for our Pastors who put so much work into the ministry for your glory and who pray for us!  Thank you for prayer and the privilege it is!  Thank you for answering, and not being silent!  Thank you for doing life with me side by side, and taking the lead as you know I am lost on my own!  Thank you for helping us to find our place in you, our security, and our peace!  Thank you for helping me find my car keys almost everyday!  Thank you for providing for my family, and showing us that your way is best!  Thank you for fellowship with other believers, its your design and all your works are wonderful! 

Of course this list has gone on all day, and I am sure it could be infinite if we really give God credit for everything, it really is HIS plan, and HE created all things, and when HE did — HE knew each of us would enjoy it…all knowing, without beginning or end, involved in each life (even while we sleep) ! Testify to the great works of God, there is no such thing as a small work, its all huge from our awesome God! and very very personal!
