Readings: C.S. Lewis Song Lyrics, by Brooke Fraser
“If I find in myself desires nothing in this world can satisfy,
I can only conclude that I was not made for here
If the flesh that I fight is at best only light and momentary,
then of course I’ll feel nude when to where I’m destined I’m compared
Speak to me in the light of the dawn
Mercy comes in the morning
I will sigh and with all creation groan as I wait for hope to come to me
Am I lost or just less found? On the straight or on the
roundabout of the wrong way?
Is this soul that stirs in me, is it breaking free, waiting to come alive?
Cos my comfort would prefer for me to be numb
And avoid the impending birth of who I was born to become
For we, are not long here
Our time is but a breath, so we better breathe it
And I, I was made to live, I was made to love, I was made to know you
Hope is coming for me
Hope, He’s coming”
C.S. Lewis Song
- This song is a great reminder that we are not meant for this Earth. We are not meant to be satisfied by Earthly things, we are not meant to feel like we “belong.” Instead we are meant to stand out, and we are meant to love others like God loves us.
Lately I have been feeling especially unsatisfied by Earthly things and more and more like I don’t quite fit in with my peers. But lately I’ve also been feeling happier and more at peace than I can ever remember feeling. I feel encouraged by hearing this song and reading these lyrics.
Last night I went street evangelizing in Chinatown with several other people from my church. I personally didn’t lead anyone to Christ but the whole night was a way to: fellowship with other believers, practice being bold for Christ, and plant seeds with people even if they appear to be rejecting you. I talked to several people who appeared uncomfortable with the topic, a security guard name Anthony going through relationship struggles with a non-believer, and met several other evangelists.
