Bring it on!

It’s amazing how God prepares me – even when I don’t ask for it and I’m not trying to prepare myself.

We took out teens to Acquire the Fire this weekend in ATL and had a fantastic time!  Phil Joel did the P&W all weekend, and Saturday evening, he sang a song that has been stuck with me for a couple days now.  Here’s the lyrics…

Take My Heart

Today’s another day
Let’s forget about yesterday
Tomorrow’s another way
To distract us from now

So here we are
The day is young
What will be? What will become?
I’m gonna let You decide
I’ll be me and You be You
Why do I confuse the two?
I gotta swallow my pride

CHORUS:
Take my heart
Take it all
I lay my life down at Your feet
‘Cause I want what You want for me
Take my heart
Take it all

Today’s another day
This tomorrow’s yesterday is now
We’re only one breath away
From it all falling down

So, let’s scatter those dreams
The ashes of our own opinions
Here’s to good health
Selfish ambition
Creates our own custom religion
I’m so tired of myself

Here we are the days of young
What will be? What will become?
I’m gonna let You decide
I’ll be me and You be You
Why do I confuse the two?
I gotta swallow my pride

Bring it on
Bring it on
Oh, Lord

I want what You want for me
Whatever it takes
Whatever you want
Bring it on

Now, if you read Ken’s  Heretics blog, then I’m sure you’ve read his Ordination post (if not, read it now).

I woke up from my Sunday afternoon nap, singing this song.  Sang it during our GUTS team meeting.  And then kept singing it while I was sitting in the ordination service, listening to Apostle David exhort the two couples being ordained (Ken and me, and Orlando and Marshalle).  Even through the list of “trials and tribulations”.

Who in their right mind would say:  “Oh, you mean all that is going to happen and more?  Bring it on!”

In the words of Veggie Tales:  My God is bigger than the Boogey Man!

So – BRING IT ON!
