Choosing what’s right, is not popular

This is where my heart is, and where its been for quite sometime.  This is my prayer, what I want to show to my children, my husband, and most of all to those around me.  I am sorry if my daily walk offends or causes another to call me judgmental, but dang! I’m tryin’ to get somewhere.  Walk the road with me-cool! Start taking me somewhere else-I’m out.  Believers-you are supposed to want this too, Non-believers-this is beautiful…check it out!

Lyrics- Toby Mac

Lose my soul

Man I wanna tell ya’ll something, Man.
Man I’m not gonna let these material thing’s, get in my way, ya’ll.
I’m trying to get somewhere.
I’m trying to get somewhere,
Thats real and pure and true and eternal.

Father God, I am clay in your hands,
Help me to stay that way through all life’s demands,
‘Cause they chip and they nag and they pull at me,
And every little thing I make up my mind to be,
Like I’m gonna be a daddy whose in the mix,
And I’m gonna be a husband who stays legit,
And I pray that I’m an artist who rises above,
The road that is wide and filled with self love,
Everything that I see draws me,
Though it’s only in You that I can truly see that its a feast for the eyes- a low blow to purpose.
And I’m a little kid at a three ring circus.

I don’t want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul,
Don’t wanna walk away, let me hear the people say.
I don’t want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul,
Don’t wanna walk away, let me hear the people say.

(Mr. Franklin, Step up to the mic sir)

The paparazzi flashes, and that they think that it’s you,
But they don’t know that who you are is not what you do,
True, we get it twisted when we peak at the charts,
Yo before we part from the start,
Where’s your heart?
You a pimp, hustler?
Tell me what’s your title,
America has no more stars, now we call them idols,
You sit idle, While we teach prosperity,
The first thing to prosper should be inside of me.
We’re free…
Not because of 22’s on the range,
But Christ came in range, we said yes now we changed,
Not the same, even though I made a fall,
Since I got that call, no more Saul, now I’m Paul.
(YEP!)

I don’t want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul,
Don’t wanna walk away, let me hear the people say.
I don’t want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul,
Don’t wanna walk away, let me hear the people say.
Don’t wanna walk away,
Don’t wanna walk away

How do I sense the tide that’s rising?
De-sensitizing me from living in light of eternity,
How do I sense the tide that’s rising?
It’s hypnotizing me from living in light of eternity,
How do I sense the tide that’s rising?
De-sensitizing me from living in light of eternity.

(Lord what we gon do,We’re relying on you,
all eyes are on you Lord,
all eyes are on you, all eyes are on you Jesus.)

I don’t want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul,
Don’t wanna walk away, let me hear the people say.
(Don’t let me lose my soul, my soul.)
I don’t want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul,
(This is my honesty, Father, won’t you cover me.)
I don’t want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul,
(Don’t wanna walk away, and all those people say)
I don’t want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul,
(Don’t wanna lose, I don’t wanna lose my soul.)

Lord forgive us when we get consumed by the things of this world,
That fight for our love, and our passion,
As our eyes are open wide and on you.
Grant us the privilege of your world view,
And may your kingdom be, what wakes us up, and lays us down.

(Hallelujah, Don’t wanna lose our soul,
No, Don’t wanna lose my soul.)

Hey excuse me,
I’m looking or the after party,
Toby,
Haha, yeah, last door on the left, you’ll hear it.
Thanks,
No problem.

Don’t let me lose my soul, I never wanna walk away,
I don’t wanna lose my soul,
No, no, no.
Don’t let me, don’t let me, lose my soul,
I don’t wanna walk away,
Don’t let me walk away,
Na na na na no,
Don’t let me lose, my soul,
I’m never gonna walk away.

  1. Lord forgive us when we get consumed by the things of this world,
    That fight for our love, and our passion,
    As our eyes are open wide and on you.
    Grant us the privilege of your world view,
    And may your kingdom be, what wakes us up, and lays us down.

    (Hallelujah, Don’t wanna lose our soul,
    No, Don’t wanna lose my soul.)

    Having just gone through a sort of fire…I’m so thankful He won’t let us lose our soul. We do stumble and sometimes fall, but He has promised that He will finish the work He began.

    I can’t get over how much He loves us…what He will orchestrate…what He will allow…for us to see Him more clearly.

    Thanks for all your prayers, Princess.

    FYP (for you praying…it’s Angie’s thing)

  2. fires…all part of the purification, and HE never takes HIS eyes off us…always faithful

  3. I told another blogger today: Listen well in the morning and you will listen better all day long. Start your day off well Darla – we have to go after it. He is right there wanting us to be blessed!

  4. It’s all about the cost of discipleship, isn’t it?
    Maybe we are supposed to daily count the cost.
    Thank you for this. Had never heard of this one.

  5. “It’s all about the cost of discipleship, isn’t it?”

    Darn it Dale you are on my brain wave…

    Love me some Toby Mac. “All eyes are on you Lord”

  6. The cost of discipleship is steep at times, but what else is there, really? HE has a pull on my heart that is so intense, and as the road get more narrow, the only thing i really want is to be on the road HE has planned for me…denying myself, and keeping my eyes on HIM..”May HIS kingdom be what wakes up and lies me down” Amen..

    (my philippians post will be up later today, not quite done with it, and headed back to work soon..then home again for a short…love you guys!)

  7. tam

    one of my favorite songs, because of the lyrics, right now!

    you okay, princess?

    email on its way….

  8. Love that song!

    Hmm… this is an age old theme. It reminds me of the book Pilgrims Progress.

  9. @ngie, sometimes I feel like Pilgrims Progress…and that is exactly what I was thinking when I thought of this song…you make me smile! thank you!
