Saying the Wrong Thing

At band practice tonight, I was joking around with a new girl and heard the bandleader say we would do the verse and chorus. Well, we were playing and those of us on this side played the verse and the chorus but on the other side of the stage (where my husband was) they played something else and without thinking I yelled over, “He said the verse and chorus so I was right.” Well, that was the wrong thing to say, especially while still laughing about something else that was said. So my husband felt disrespected and was fuming the rest of the night and went to bed early mad. So here is a confession of insensitivity to publicly say I was wrong and to show how even people who mean well make mistakes when they blurt things out without thinking. Case in point, we brought a friend to church who does not go with his parents and while there the preacher’s kid teased him and name called about his size. Needless to say, she probably thought she was funny but she totally alienated our friend to church and maybe more. The things we say, especially when joking or sleepy or off guard, well they count. They matter and people can get wounded by them. So, honey, I am very sorry for my rudeness and insensitivity. Please forgive me. And God, please help me with keeping my mouth closed. 

Restoration

There is a verse that says “If my people, who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin and heal their land.

With this verse in mind, I have an ambitious Spiritual goal of starting a revival and getting us Christians back to God. As we do our job, God will heal our land.

God gave me this song, which I have posted on YouTube as ” Lord, We’re Sorry.” Here are the lyrics:
Lord, we’re sorry when we’ve given to the devil gifts from You.
Lord, we’re sorry for placing ourselves as idols above You.
Lord, we want to humble ourselves, seek and pray and turn to You.
Now we ask You, Lord forgive us. Show us mercy, show us You.

Please forgive us. Lord, please heal our land.
Please, Lord help us. Lord, we need Your hand.

Lord, we humbly come. All of us as one.
Lord, we come to give our lives and country back to You.
There’s no greater need that we have on earth.
Jesus, save our lives. Cover our sins with Your glory.

Lord, we’re sorry when we’ve let our own agendas block our view.
Lord, we’re ashamed when we’ve spoken harsh words to some lambs of Yours.
Lord, we’re sorry for every path we’ve taken away from You.
Now, we ask You, Lord, restore us. Show us mercy. Lead with truth.

Please forgive us. Lord, please heal our land.
Lord, please help us. Lord, we need Your hand

Lord, we humbly come. All of us as one.
Lord, we come to give our lives and could try back to You.
There’s no greater need that we have on earth.
Jesus, save our lives. Cover our sins with Your glory.

That is the song God’s Spirit wrote in my heart, so I will be singing it every chance I get. I believe the time of the end is here. I believe that the Father has it all in His hands. However, I believe we must wake us and get ourselves right with God and show people Him in us. It should not look like the world. We should not be sinning, arguing, wrestling with addictions, selfish. We as Christians have a primary responsibility on this planet… Lifting up Christ and winning souls for His kingdom. Everything else is temporary.
