What Will They Say?

I've heard this song before, but I was listening to the radio this morning while I was doing some stuff on the computer, and the lyrics just jumped out at me.  I hope this doesn't sound pious or uppity or whatever, but I truly want to be remembered this way. (Not trying to be morbid or anything...)

I have seen recently some examples of genuine hearts, giving souls, even though these people are suffering as they give...and it's really inspired me to be even more like Christ.  To take care of those in need.  To help the least of these.

Live Like That by Sidewalk Prophets

Sometimes I think
What will people say of me
When I'm only just a memory
When I'm home where my soul belongs

Was I love
When no one else would show up
Was I Jesus to the least of those
Was my worship more than just a song


I want to live like that
And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You


If love is who I am

Then this is where I'll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that

I want to live like that

Am I proof

That You are who you say You are
That grace can really change a heart
Do I live like Your love is true

People pass

And even if they don't know my name
Is there evidence that I've been changed
When they see me, do they see You

I want to live like that

And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You

If love is who I am

Then this is where I'll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that

I want to live like that

I want to show the world the love You gave for me

I'm longing for the world to know the glory of the King

I want to live like that

And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You

If love is who I am

Then this is where I'll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that

I want to live like that

I would challenge everyone reading this to really think about this.  I know that not all of my readers are "Christians", but those of you who know me know I am, and that I share my faith on my blog frequently.  It has helped me deal with this illness.  God gives me Hope.  And without that... I wouldn't be here.

I want so much to be physically stronger so I can do more to help "the least of these"....But I will do what I can.  We can all do something.
