Revival Starts with Me …

I offer another reminder to seek wisdom through the writings at Proverbial Thought.

Last week I did something I have not done in a while: I posted a song that gets me thinking.

I have written before about the importance of prayer, because it is so vital to the life of a Christian.

We wonder why we have no power over circumstances.

We wonder why we do not see miracles.

We wonder why we struggle.

We wonder why revival never comes to our community …

… and if it does, why does it not last?

As Tim Timmons sings, it is because we are not fulfilling our part. Usually, we are trying to do too much and missing the vital first step!

Starts With Me

What could I do to leave a legacy?
How can I speak with authority
When I can’t see you, I can’t see you
How can I know the dreams you have for me?
How can I believe beyond what I have seen?
When I can’t hear you, I can’t feel you now
No, no, no

(Chorus)
You’re my revival song, you start where I belong
On my knees, on my knees
When I am weak or strong you meet me here
When I’m on my knees, on my knees
Oh, it starts with me

Why do I try to work outside of you?
Knocking down doors I should be going through
But I’m so tired, I’m so tired
You take my burdens off of my shoulders
You break the lies that hold me back
I’m not sure enough

(Chorus)

I really wanna change the world
I really wanna save your soul
But I know revival’s got to start with me
I really wanna change the world
I really wanna sing Your song
But I know revival’s got to start with me

(Chorus)
