So a song comes along and doesn’t just move me, it shifts me. It creates a question that dogs my steps, my words, my thoughts.
If He returns today, what will He find me doing?
Choosing to walk in the Spirit, or letting my flesh call the shots?
Loving Him, and my neighbor? Because loving God while hating people isn’t loving God. Will I be found walking out that truth?
Making decisions from a place of faith, or fear?
Actually being a light in the darkness, or just complaining because it’s dark?
Living fully as who I was created to be, or wishing I was someone else?
Just attending a church or being the Church?
Promoting unity, or bringing division?
Full of joy, or full of self-pity? Or bitterness. Or jealousy. Or judgment. Or fill in the blank.
Walking in peace, or looking for a fight?
Living to please Him, or someone else?
Will He find me thankful? Grateful for all He has done, all He has given to me? Or will I be found complaining? Wishing there was more.
I have no control over when He comes back. But should He return today, what He finds is all on me. And you.
