Thankful that God took your broken life and made it whole?
Still amazed by how you’re not the broken person you used to be?
Well then, this week’s Tuneful Tuesday is for you?
Shake by Mercy Me is all about praising God for how he’s changed us.
Someone once told me that people don’t change.
He said they might try, and they might fool you for a little bit, but in the end they don’t change. It shook me up a little and depressed me. But now I know that’s not true. You know how I know? I know because over the last four years my whole life has changed in ways I didn’t think it ever could.
Four years ago, I was at a low point, and I was angry at God. His way just wasn’t working, and I was going to prove it. So I told him so, and he reminded me that I wasn’t really doing things his way.
I was faking it, and He was right.
But I wasn’t about to let that put me off. So I told him I would do things his way, totally, and then he would see how horrible my life would be.
But that didn’t happen.
I did do things his way. Got real, stopped lying, stopped pretending to be something I’m not, but instead of my world imploding, something else happened. It blossomed. It bloomed. It grew. It changed.
And now there’s no going back for me.
Once you’ve tasted life and glimpsed the power and love of the Almighty, life is different. He makes it different and keeps me moving. There is hope. There is wonderful, unimaginable, unexplainable hope, so stop offering up excuses, and turn around. He is willing to shake your world and make it new.
Now excuse me while I turn up this song and dance around my living room like a crazy woman cause the Great God Almighty done changed me!
