So this weekend I was thinking about last words. We hear the expression “famous last words” often throughout our lives. From time to time we might even imagine the reality of our fleeting lives and think about the last words we said or would wish to say to our family and those that mean the most to us. I’ve lived enough at this point in my thirty one years to have had some different phases, stages or let’s call them seasons in my short lifetime. Serving God is truly a journey that we’re on. I’ll be honest I’m glad that it is a journey that I don’t know all the details to (that takes alot for a self-proclaimed control freak to admit! 🙂 Thankfully God reveals to us the steps we need to take for this part of the journey we’re on. I don’t exactly know where I’ll end up when I’m one hundred years old and that’s ok. I’m excited about listening to God’s voice and following Him for the steps and seasons that will lead me to one hundred. I’m trusting Him.

Five years ago I ended a season of my life and my last words on that stage were words that I’m pretty proud were the last words I got to share with that audience. So much of what I get to share with others is through the songs I sing. It was a song by Tim Hughes called “Everything” (It’s awesome. If you don’t know it check it out here http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/everything/id323390198?i=323390215 )

God in my living

There in my breathing

God in my waking

God in my sleeping

God in my resting

There in my working

God in my thinking

God in my speaking

 

Be my everything

Be my everything

Be my everything

Be my everything

 

God in my hoping

There in my dreaming

God in my watching

God in my waiting

God in my laughing

There in my weeping

God in my hurting

God in my healing

 

Be my everything

Be my everything

Be my everything

Be my everything

 

Christ in me

Christ in me

Christ in me the hope of glory

 

You are everything

You are everything

You are everything

You are everything

Jesus everything

Jesus everything

Jesus everything

Jesus everything

So fast forward alot of life lived. New seasons that began. New steps, adventures and parts to the journey. It’s time for a chapter to close and something new to open. This time again, I’m humbled and grateful for the last words I got to have. This time by Chris Tomlin and his uber popular song “Our God”:

Our God is greater

Our God is stronger

God You are higher than any other

Our God is healer

Awesome in power our God, our God

If those are to be my famous last words then I’m feeling good about it. I want my life to reflect the greatness of our God and the amazing love that He gives to us. Whatever season you are in and whatever journey you are on make it count. Think about your last words and the impact they can make. So, onward Christian soldiers let’s continue marching on. Our God is greater, stronger and higher than any other!
