This is a song by David Crowter Band named Surely We Can Change, that I listened to the other night and fell in LOVE. I only put the chorus up because I think it is truly powerful, eventhough the whole song is fantastic. The words are simply beautiful and this is my prayer for everyone.

Where there is pain
Let there be grace
Where there is suffering
Bring serenity
For those afraid
Help them be brave
Where there is misery
Bring expectancy
And surely we can change
Surely we can change
Something And the problem it seems
Is with you and me
Not the LOVE
Who came To repair everything

The song really changed how I thought about others once again. I seriously always get caught up in my life and my problems and I need to stop doing that, but to be honest it is a constant battle for me. I know others have far more problems to worry about then I, but I seem to always drag everything back to myself and how I am feeling. It is truly a huge struggle of mine that I am getting better day by day through the grace of God and only God. In reality I have far more then I need and I still complain, what is my problem? I only hope that I can really grow in this part of my life. It seems like everything is just becoming so clear to me and I hope God can really paint me a picture of how blessed I am everyday! Also, a little side note, Matt Brown's sermon on Sunday was wonderful! He was talking about hurting and lost people and how we as "Christians" need to get up and reach out to those people not sit here and think we are better than them. People mess up that are followers and even them we need to reach out to, although it is extremely disapointing when someone you know that is a strong follower messes up. The worst thing to do though is leave and give up on them because what do they have to prove? NOTHING! I can't even imagine if my friends abandoned me during all the times I messed up I'd be so lost. So, stand by them and lift them up God can work miracles in the people you think that could NEVER change. As we all know Christians act so perfect and better then others and I'll be the first to admit I think that about myself all the time. I put myself up higher then others because I think, wow I've got it, I so have this christian thing down, I read my bible, I pray, and I go to church, ohh and the best of all is I'm going on this trip to the Middle East because I am that good of a Christian. My mind is totally out of whack when I get in that thinking process. God transform me. Matt brought up another great point, he was reading one of Paul's books in the Bible 1 Timothy 1:12-17, Paul states he is the worst of all sinners becuase of all the horrible things he had done. The point Matt was making was that WE are not the worst sinners because you see, Paul already claimed it, but we can take the silver medal and be the SECOND worst of them all. I loved that. My favorite part of the whole sermon was when Matt said, "Those who have been forgiven much, LOVE much!" I only hope this is the case.
