What Keeps us from Activating Your Faith

I have this song stuck in my head at the present time from Matthew West and it has me getting ready for the upcoming GMM Conference in a very different way…
Please look at these words before I make a comment.

“Hello, My Name Is”

Hello, my name is regret
I’m pretty sure we have met
Every single day of your life
I’m the whisper inside
That won’t let you forget
Hello, my name is defeat
I know you recognize me
Just when you think you can win
I’ll drag you right back down again
‘Til you’ve lost all belief
These are the voices, these are the lies
And I have believed them, for the very last time
Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I’ve been saved, I’ve been changed, and I have been set free
“Amazing Grace” is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I am no longer defined
By all the wreckage behind
The one who makes all things new
Has proven it’s true
Just take a look at my life
What love the Father has lavished upon us
That we should be called His children
I am a child of the one true King

I have highlighted a few words that stood out for me…   as I am preparing for this year’s GMM Conference  “Activate Your Faith”  —  I am always looking at what keeps us from doing this – and this song has identified a few of them –  Regret and Defeat –  How many times do we let stuff like this take control of what we do?    We must look at what Jesus has given us…  “Amazing Grace”   and this is a very powerful Act of Accepting – but when we do – the Healing that it will give us is indescribable.   Jesus is the one that will make all things new and as we go forward – the world will look allot different to us when we are called a child of the one true King.
I would encourage you to listen to this song and it will be stuck in your head as it is mine.
