TobyMac, Made To Love

Verse 1
The dream is fading, now I'm staring at the door
I know its over cause my feet have hit the cold floor
Check my reflection, I ain't feelin what I see
It's no mystery
Whatever happened to a passion I could live for?
What became of the flame that made me feel more?
And when did i forget that...

Chorus
I was made to love You
I was made to find You
I was made just for You
Made to adore You
I was made to love
And be loved by You
You were here before me
You were waiting on me
And you said you'd keep me
Never would you leave me
I was made to love
and be loved by You

Verse 2
The dream's alive with my eyes opened wide
Back in the ring You've got me swinging for the grand prize
I feel the haters is spittin vapors on my dreams
But I still believe
I'm reachin out, reachin up, reachin over
I feel a breeze cover me called Jehovah
And Daddy I'm on my way
Cause I was made to love...

Chorus

I was made to love You
I was made just for you Made to adore you
I was made to love and be loved by you

You were here before You were waiting on me
And you said you'd keep
Me never would you leave
I was made to love and be loved by you



Bridge
Anything I would give up for You
Everything, I'd give it all away
(Repeat 3x)

I was made to love You, I was made to love You
I was made to love You, I was made to find you
I was made to love You, Made just for You
I was made to love You, Made just for You
I was made to love You, Made just for You
I was made to love You, I will love by you



Still praying over this place. I thought God wanted to move mightily through this. Maybe not...

Hey. I just want to have a bit of a letting-stuff-out rant, and would really appreciate advice from some other Christians because I guess this isn't just me...

I'm 17, and became a Christian aged 11, so that's been 6 years. In that time I have struggled epicly with self hatred, lack of confidence and self harm. I've never talked to any of my friends about these things because they are intensely personal, but here I guess it's easier because it's annonymous. I still struggle with them, not as much as before, but... well that's not really what I want to talk about. The thing I'm struggling with is standing for Jesus in the face of my friends.


It is so hard to stand for Jesus so that your friends can see. And I feel like I just keep failing at it. Of course we can never live up to his standards, but, I want to! And I just want to be an example. But I'm a failure. I thought he wanted me to start the Soul_survivor247 community to get the LJ global community praying, but only one other friend from church has joined despite numerous plugs. He gave a word to me in the summer about this thing called The Elisha Generation, and then the word website, and I've been trying to act on it, but I can't! I don't know how to design this site properly!!! So I haven't done anything apart from pray, and I know that prayer is more effective than we will ever know, but it's frustrating. And all my mates are atheists, and being an example is so important for me, but... HOW?! I've never talked to anyone apart from my best friend about the issues God has helped me with, so only he can see how He has helped me! But talking to my friends about them is out of the question because... I just can't talk about it to them.

About 3 months ago I was introduced to a song that goes "Take my life, let it be, Everything, All Of Me, Here I am, living for your glory." It took me a while before I could brace myself to sing that song and mean it, because it's a huge thing to say to God! Of course it's something we say, like, yeah sure I'll try for you, but asking God to take it and change it and mean it?! Putting it into his hands in those words?! It felt like a pretty huge deal to make such a clear cut commitment and to finally move up a level spiritually. But it was a commitment I made, and ever since then I've been wanting to change. And if we ask we will recieve, right? So why is it so hard, when I'm begging God to help me change, and trying so much, to do it?!

I'm really struggling here, please, any advice would be great. Thanks.

"Where his voice resounds, he holds nothing back"

One day Jesus takes a walk.

He walks down by some tunnels. Inside each tunnel is a human. Each human is going about their daily lives, in these dark, closeted tunnels. Jesus can see how narrowly they're living, so he walks up to the enterance of the first tunnel.

He shouts down the enternace of the first tunnel, "I have good things for you!" His voice is met with a dull silence; the person had padded the walls of their tunnel so his words can't reverberate. They carry on with their daily life.

Jesus walks to the next tunnel.

He shouts down the next tunnel, "I have good things for you!" The person stiffens, straightens. They then turn and start to walk towards the mouth of the tunnel. Jesus is thrilled; they're coming to him! He opens his arms wide to them, smiling. Calmly the person kneels just inside the tunnel and begins bricking it up. They carefully continue to lay bricks and cements over the tunnel mouth until the last brick is in place.

Jesus lowers his arms and walks on.

He shouts down the next tunnel, "I have good things for you!" But this tunnel is full of noise; phones ringing, babies crying, people laughing. Jesus' voice isn't heard in the clamour.

Jesus walks to the next tunnel.

He shouts down the next tunnel, "I have good things for you!" Inside is someone sitting quietly, listening. Upon hearing his voice they look up and see Jesus standing there in the light. Hesitantly they stand up and walk to the tunnel enterance. "You have good things for me, Lord?" They double check. Jesus walks to the tunnel enterance and looks at them. "I've always had good things for you. Where my voice resounds, I hold nothing back."

The person smiles self conciously, then stretches out their foot for their first step into the sunlight.

(Written in my quiet time; inspired by Job 37:4, "Where his voice resounds, he holds nothing back")

Update

Heya!

God's been doing some great stuff since I last updated, including giving me the opportunity to do some web design, which I hope is what I'm supposed to be doing for the Elisha Generation.

Still praying over this place. Anyone reading this who wants to pray please say soon :)

This is crazy!

This is out there!

This is just beyond weird!

God...

Well, you know the whole Elisha Generation thing? I've just been googling it, turns out God's been kicking this thing around since 2004, and I've found another young Christian with a burden who posted it up on her blog!!!!!! I'm going to email her in a minute.

I can just feel the Spirit here with me!!!!!

This is so weird! I'd never heard those words till a few weeks ago, but God had before I was even born!!!!!!!!

Eeeee!

Soul Survivor 2007

Woooo yeah!!!!!!!!!!

I'm home :)

Missed y'all a lot, but you have no idea how GREAT my time away has BEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so, I'll calm and start from the top ^_^_^ I went to Soul Survivor, with my brother and three friends from my youth group (Steve, Iaian and Ruth). SS is basically a huge Christian festival where young people meet to pray, worship and hang out and I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

In case anyone isn't interested, under cut rather than spamming friendsCollapse )

:)

I have been on holiday and now I am back. It was a good trip that I can really give glory to God for, especially the meteorite shower (if anyone saw that). Soul Survivor starts for me on Saturday, something I'm really excited about! Maybe see some other people there? If there's anyone reading this...

Love in Christ

Just a little thing.

Today I played at the National Festival of Music in Birmingham. We had one concert, then we headed into town to get some food. When we returned to the dressing room for our second slot, I couldn't find my shoe. Somehow it had got lost in the city centre. After a few seconds of panicking, a friend mentioned that he and his girlfriend had seen a shoe in the centre and wondered who's it was. We quickly changed and then he came with me back to where he'd seen it. A good hour must have passed between him seeing it and our return, but praise be to God it was exactly where he'd seen it, clear as day and my shoe! It hadn't been stolen or damaged or anything, and we were able to get it and walk back to the concert hall with loads of time to spare before our slot.

Just the little things like that are very great.
