I Refuse to………. SIT ON MY BUTT!

I REFUSE by Josh Willson

lyricsty.com

Sometimes I
I just want to close my eyes
And act like everyone’s all right
When no, they’re not

This world needs God
But it’s easier to just stand and watch
I could say a prayer and just move on
Like nothing’s wrong

But I refuse

Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care
I don’t want to say another empty prayer
Oh I refuse to
Sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh I could choose
Not to move

But I refuse

I can hear the least of these
Crying out so desperately
And I know we are the hands and feet
Of You, O God

So if you say move
It’s time for me to follow through
And do what I was made to do
And show them who you are
[ Lyrics from: htp://www.lyricsty.com/josh-wilson-i-refuse-lyrics.html ]

Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care
I don’t want to say another empty prayer
Oh I refuse to
Sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh I could choose
Not to move

But I refuse

To stand and watch
The weary and lost
Cry out for Him
I refuse
To turn my back
And try and act like all is well

I refuse

To stay unchanged
To wait another day
To doubt myself

I refuse
To make one more excuse

Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care
I don’t want to say another empty prayer
Oh I refuse to
Sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh I could choose
Not to move

But I refuse

I refuse
I refuse

Yeah

 

So, what do you  think?
Sometimes it gets wearing, all this stuff going on all around. People have been told, yet they still keep going around the same treadmill of sin. You get pretty tired of it, let’em get what they deserve, they won’t listen. Or maybe you’re too busy, you tithe, you pay someone to do this stuff, but you’ll pray for them. Okay, yeah, that’s it, get on the prayer chain, maybe mumble something on one that interests you. Job done.

But then there are those who seriously haven’t heard, that only you are qualified to speak to them because God has been spending your entire life preparing you to do it. Are you still going to sit? Are you still going to let someone else do it even if you’re the one God has set apart for that very thing?

This song burned a hole deep down to the depths of my heart the first time I heard it. It continues to do so. Many of you visit my writings hoping for another Word, another admonition, another encouragement. Take this Word then, I believe from the Lord, GET OFF YOUR DUFFS AND GET OUT THERE! Wow, did I just say that? Really, I pray the conviction burns in you as it does in me and that you will fervently seek God  and what He would have you do. And when He tells you, and He definitely will, get right to it…

I'm a musician and worship leader, intent on following wherever God leads and directs me, with His leading's in the Spirit and others bonking me on the head ( hopefully not much of the latter). My life experiences are in blue collar and white collar (engineering) employment, political office, lay ministries, national competition in track and cross country and most importantly marriage and raising a family. God has given me a unique set of skills and character to serve Him and a passion for doing it.
