I Make My Life A Prayer To You

My words to meditate on today come in the form of a song from my youth … by a singer/songwriter who truly changed my life.  I woke up this morning with this song running through my head … and truthfully?  This song has been running through my head for most of my life (although, admittedly, sometimes it was background music, lol).  It is not my intent to exclude or disenfranchise anyone by sharing a “Christian song” … that is a part of my history, and a part of who I am.  As you can read in my “About” statement, God loves us ALL and religion can often serve as yet another shell: a way to try and define something that is not definable.  God, the Universe, Love, or whatever anyone wants to call that omnipotent Force/Being … thinks you personally are SO special, that God wants to connect with you … being in this religion or that religion, or no religion for that matter, doesn’t change that.  I hope that, whatever your faith, you will be open to being moved by God … connecting with God … and feel that life-altering frisson of spiritual fulfillment.  Peace and Love.

I Make My Life A Prayer To You

By: Keith Green

I make my life a prayer to You 
I wanna do what You want me to 
No empty words and no white lies 
No token prayers no compromise 

I wanna shine the light You gave 
Through Your Son You sent to save us 
From ourselves and our despair 
It comforts me to know You’re really there 

Well I wanna thank You now for being patient with me 
Oh it’s so hard to see, when my eyes are on me 
I guess I’ll have the trust and just believe what You say 
Oh You’re coming again, You’re coming to take me away 

I wanna die and let You give Your life to me, so I might live 
And share the hope You gave to me, the love that set me free 
I wanna tell the world out there, You’re not some fable or fairy tale 
That I’ve made up inside my head, You’re God the Son 
You’ve risen from the dead 

Oh I wanna thank You now for being patient with me 
Oh it’s so hard to see, when my eyes are on me 
I guess I’ll have the trust and just believe what You say 
Oh You’re coming again, coming to take me away 

I wanna die and let You give Your life to me, so I might live 
And share the hope You gave to me 
I wanna share the love that set me free

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
