Today’s my day off, so I got to sleep a little later, and I always wonder if the music will change, or be different, or just not there. I don’t get to pick the songs… They just sing through my head, mind, ears while I sleep and they’re there in mid-song when I wake up. But no worries…
What could I do to leave a legacy? How can I speak with authority when I can’t see You? How can I know the dreams You have for me? How can I believe beyond what I have seen when I can’t hear You, I can’t feel You now?
These wonderful questions come from Tim Timmons song Starts With Me. It was singing through my mind when I woke up in the middle of the night and still there this morning when I woke up, almost at daylight (which is rare for me.) The chorus of this song goes:
You’re my revival song, You start where I belong On my knees, on my knees When I am weak You’re strong, You meet me here When I’m on my knees, on my knees Oh, it starts with me
I really wanna change the world I really wanna sing your song But I know revival’s got to start with me
I am always amazed at how God sings the songs I need to hear. I’ve really been struggling with some things professionally. It’s so easy to blame others for what I see, for issues that need attention, for poor morale, and so much more. But the words to this song are pounding in my head telling me otherwise. It starts with ME. If I want to see changes, I need to start the revolution, the revival. If I really do want to change the world, then I have to change MY world first. So this morning, I am making a list of things I want to STOP doing that will make a difference in my world. And I’m making a list of things I want to START doing that will make a difference in my world, and maybe beyond. Because revivals can grow, and catch like wildfire, and spread. And it starts here, with me, when I’m on my knees. BE THE CHANGE!!
