Song Challenge, Day Fifteen

A song that describes you….

This one is a bit harder. There are a lot of songs that speak to me. And there are a lot of songs that describe who I want to be. But to choose one that describes who I am right not, at this particular point in my life…. That’s going to take a lot of thought.

One of the first songs that comes to mind is “Jesus Freak” by DC Talk. Once upon a time, I thought the term Jesus freak had a negative meaning. Today, though, I see it differently. Who cares if people are embarrassed or ashamed to be near me because the light of Jesus shines through me? Better to embarrass people here on Earth than get to Heaven and have Jesus proclaim that He is ashamed of me.

Right along that same line of thinking is the song “I’m Not Ashamed” by the Newsboys.

Then I thought of a song by Carman. Two actually. “Radically Saved” and “Addicted to Jesus.” Yeah, those are two phrases that I am happy to have attached to my name!

But I think the best song to describe me right now is an old one by DeGarmo and Key. That song is “Casual Christian.” Not that I am saying I am a casual Christian. That is not a term that I want to have attached to my name. I don’t want to just sit back and allow the world to go on around me without doing something, ANYthing, to impact those around me for Christ. I want my love for Him to show in all that I do. I don’t want to be casual about my relationship with Christ. I don’t want to be lukewarm. No, instead “I want to light up the night with an everlasting light.”

How about you? What song best describes your life today?
