Start here with me please!

I must admit that most of the time I'm not on the same beat when it comes to music and the rest of the family.  They love music with a really hard fast beat, but because of a slight hearing loss, I have a hard time understanding the words and it sounds muffled, especially at a concert. So when they turn up Toby Mac, Kutless, Sanctus Real,  Thousand Foot Krutch, Audio Adrenaline, I reach for my  iPod and ear phones. We've (mostly Honey) taken our kids to Winter Jam more than a few times and Newsboys (when Peter was in the group) always get ALL of us really excited when they've been close enough for us to see. Their concerts were always more like a worship experience than a concert. One song that has really caught my attention on Air 1 is by Toby Mac: City on Our Knees.   It always makes me stop and evaluate what I'm doing with my life, my day, my kids,school, and my marriage.  Have I done my best in my relationship with God and life. No, everyday seems to be a struggle to balance, to get it all done.  What this helps me with is that it's an everyday renewal with God, and I desperately want it now!  On that day when He comes back, I don't want to think about regrets of "I'll do it right after..." that constantly plague my days...

If you gotta start somewhere why not here
If you gotta start sometime why not now
If we gotta start somewhere I say here
If we gotta start sometime I say now
Through the fog there is hope in the distance
From cathedrals to third world missions
Love will fall to the earth like a crashing wave

Tonight could last forever
We are one choice from together
As family
We’re family
Oh Tonight could last forever
We are one choice from together
You and me
Ya, you and me
Tonight’s the night
For the sinners and the saints
Two worlds collide
In a glorious display
Cuz its all love tonight
When we step across the line
We can sail across the sea
To a city with one king
A city on our knees
If we gotta start somewhere why not here
If we gotta start sometime why not now

I tell you that immediately after posting this, I walked into the kitchen and turned on Air 1 and guess what was playing... Yep!  City on Our Knees... "Okay God!  I hear you!" I told Him.  Almost immediately Satan started in on my day.  I just felt like yelling at him to get out of my house! It was a good day to not come for a visit!  Days like this, I have to keep reminding myself that He is in control, He is in control, He IS in control!
