Maybe this time....I'll speak the Words of life....

Yesterday morning I woke up with these lyrics running through my head:

"Mulling over things that won't live past today.
Maybe this time, I'll speak the Words of life...."

So when this happens and I can't place the song I write it down and look it up and this is a song by Casting Crowns called "Here I go Again".

This is one powerful song talking about "dancing around the truth this may be his last chance to tell him that You love him, maybe this time". Isn't that powerful?!! I've thought about this for my own life and how I've danced around the truth at times, not knowing how to approach people or just what to say, but no more dancing around it. I'll tell it straight up, with love. People need to know the love of Christ in their own hearts. God has entrusted us with a HUGE task, to spread the Gospel of Truth and also to live that Truth out every day of our lives. What good does it do to spread a Gospel we don't live? If you are living out this Truth then others will see that in you and want that in their own life. It is important. It is the stuff of real life and fruit. Yep it is real fruit being produced in your life.

Lord let me be loaded down with fruit for You Father. May I always speak with boldness and tell of Your Greatness and of Your Son who died for us!! Praise You!!! Use me to spread the Words of life and to be a witness of Your love and a testimony of what You can do in a life. I do not even resemble the person I used to be. You have transformed my life. Thank You Jesus!!!

So why would I wake up singing this song, especially with those particular lyrics, "mulling over things that won't live past today"? Because that is my tendency. I am a thinker, an over-thinker. I can also be a worrier (I'm working on this). But I will mull over things for a long time if I'm not careful and I believe this was a message to me from Father. "Stop mulling over things child, that will never live past today, things you cannot change and have no control over....move on." So moving on is just what I'm gonna do. I have been mulling over something that I need to let go of. I need to trust Him as I let go of it and know that God has already worked it out, because after all, we are already seated in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus. So what do I have to worry about. Worry and fret gets me no where good. So I trust.

Ephesians 2:6-8 The Message: "He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on His own, with no help from us! Then He picked us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah. Now God has us where He wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all His idea, and all His work. All we do is trust Him enough to let Him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish!"

Don't you just love that? He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ, and not because we did anything to deserve it. No He knew what we needed and He did it with absolutley no help from us. He did it because He loves us. AMAZING!!! It's all His idea and His gift from start to that!!

I found this powerful video from a group of young people at Garland Baptist Church. I don't know them, but this video is really good. I love to see young people using their talents for the Lord. It is a sad video, but watch to the end. Really good!!! GREAT JOB GARLAND BAPTIST YOUTH!!

Take some time to let God heal those places in you that tend to mull over things that will never live past today and move on in Him. He loves you so!!!

Love you,


  1. WOW - how powerful is that video!!! Good find!

    love to you - Beth

  3. Dawn,

    What an incredible post and I love how God can lay things on our hearts or in this case our dreams. You should also check out the movie, In Search of Jonathan Sperry, it's a Christian true story that came out on DVD. You'd love it.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  4. Good word, Dawn. I am going through something right now that I just need to "let go and let God." It's hard...
