I Refuse

Tonight was Scripture Study night.

We read Chapter 15 of St. Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians. A lot of people showed up tonight and the discussion was very interesting, although a bit rushed so we all didn’t get stuck in the parking lot when the youth group let out.

As good as the night was, my morning and afternoon were much, much better. I discovered a new song from Josh Wilson that just blew me away. The music, the message, all of it. It just blew me away.

I don’t want to live like I don’t care.
I don’t want to say another empty prayer.
Oh, I refuse to sit around and wait for someone else,
To do what God has called me to do myself.
I could choose not to move,
But I refuse!

Here’s the video.


I don’t know why I am constantly amazed at the messages God seems to send to me right when I need them. He does it all the time, you’d think I would be used to it by now.

I refuse to stand and watch the weary and lost cry out for help.
I refuse to turn my back and try and act like all is well.
I refuse to stay unchanged, to wait another day to die to myself.
I refuse to make one more excuse.
