Something Holy

If I asked you if you wanted to be a part of something holy, something that God is doing in the lives of others...I would venture to guess that you would shoot your hand up in the sky so fast some would think that you had just won the Reader's Digest Sweepstakes. As a Christian, I definitely crave God's involvement in the lives of others. I want to make it as big as an impact as I can. I feel like that is why God has allowed me to be here.

Lately, sometimes I feel like I am not doing anything for the cause for Christ. Ever feel like that??? This week though, God has reminded that yes, I do have a part in something holy by being consistent and faithful in what He has called me to do. The obvious activities by God is not always obvious to me, and we tend to focus on the visual obvious results, that is NOT what I should focus on. He is at work where we can't always see. And therefore, because I can't always see how God is working in the lives of others, that doesn't mean God doesn't.

I learned this truth through a conversation that I had with a friend that I hadn't talked to in years. She said, "I admire your faithfulness." That struck me as a direct message to keep on truckin', moving forward to towards the goal, to make a difference in the lives of those I know and those I don't. The lesson here is obedience to do what I know to do, continue on the path that God has set before me, trusting Him all the way.

Stellar Kart has a song "Something Holy":

"You say that the wells run dry.
And there's no more tears to cry.
You're searching for something real.
To make you feel.

You Know that you're incomplete.
A song with a broken beat.
There's a hole in all our hearts.
And there's a reason why!

(Chorus)
We were born to be,
A part of something holy.
All of us are restless 'til we find.
We were born to be,
A part of something holy.
Bigger than, bigger than
You and I.
Bigger than all our lives.

The hunger you feel inside,
That keeps you unsatisfied.
It pulls at you constantly.
Like gravity.
This world never was enough.
We're made for a deeper love.
There's a hole in all our hearts.
It's part of the design.

We were born to be,
A part of something holy.
All of us are restless 'til we find.
We were born to be,
A part of something holy.
Bigger than, bigger than
You and I.
Bigger than all our lives.

All our lives we long for something more.
The life that we were all created for.

We were born to be,
A part of something holy.
All of us are restless 'til we find.
We were born to be,
A part of something holy.
Bigger than, bigger than
Bigger than you and I.
Bigger than, bigger than all our lives!"

I want to be a part of something Holy! Something bigger than me, a God-sized vision to impact the world, my world for Christ. When is a time that God has used you to impact others? Are you doing something holy?
