Dare You To Move

AHHHH!!! MIDTERMS... NO BLOG TIME!!!

Anyway, here is a post from MPBC's old friend Mike Norton. You can check out his billion different websites by clicking the title.

I promise, I will be back soon!

Josh 3:55 Joshua told the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you." (NIV)

You know what we need more than anything today? To get off our rears and make a difference in the world that the Lord has put us in. The Lord has given us the ability and the call to do some great things for him.
We need to forget all the negative backtalk that has oppressed us for so many years. It’s time to simple, get out there and live as if you are saved. Come on; don’t look at me that way. We need to step up to the plate and actually act as if we have the greatest thing going. After all, we do. Jesus died for you and he has given you the ability to be more than you are.


So today, I dare you to move.

Yep, you’ve heard that before. Listen to this excerpt from Switchfoot’s album, Beautiful Letdown. And heed the lyrics.

Dare You To Move by Switchfoot
Album : The Beautiful Letdown

Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone's here
Everyone's here
Everybody's watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next?
What happens next?

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the
floor

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
The tension is here
Between who you are and who you could
be

Between how it is and how it should be

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the
floor

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened

Maybe redemption has stories to tell
Maybe forgiveness is right where you
fell

Where can you run to escape from
yourself?

Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself
Lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened before

Hey Chris!! I love that song, and it has definitely spoken to my heart many times.

I like how you made the verse from Joshua so small that you have to copy and paste it into Word to read it :) LOL. Great verse!! :)

Good luck with your midterms--mine are coming up fast as well.
