Spreading God Word!

In this post I would like to place a very quick lyric from one of my favorite songs! The song is entitled " The secrets in telling " by Dashboard Confessional! Here are my favorite lyrics from the song!-

" There is a secret that we keep
I won't sleep if you won't sleep
Because tonight may be the last chance we'll be given
We are compelled to do what we have to
We are compelled to do what we have been forbidden"

I decided to post these lyrics because I think they truly reflect on what we feel compelled to do with our lives, that the world does not want us to do. From my prospective, this song is talking about our mission as Christians, although I don't think this is the songs true subject. I think this song is talking about praising, worshiping, and loving God, and preaching His good news! However, as these lyrics state, the world forbids us to be close to God and to preach His word to the world!
However, God pulls us closer to Himself every time we begin to fall away from His side. God is like a magnet! No matter how far we fall, we still are attracted to Him and so we are bursting, itching and urging to tell the whole world that we become compelled to telling everyone about Him by living the way He wants us to! We become compelled to God, and doing His will! We should all be like this! We should all be compelled and attracted to God, like a new born baby is to its mother! So we should as God to help us become attracted to Him, and not to the world! We should ask Him for the strength to deny the world, and preach what it forbids, which is Gods word!

Please pray this prayer with me for strength to resist the world, and live for God-

Eternal Father,

Help us to be your servants, and to do what you ask of us, even if the world forbids it! Give us the strength and the courage to place our trust in you. Help us to open ourselves and allow Yourself into our hearts, so that we feel the need to share this with the whole world! Lord attract us to yourself, and take us from the world!

We ask this in your name!



  1. Wonderful John! Just wonderful! Keep it up! Help bring me to God's heart!

  2. Beautiful prayer, John. I definitely prayed it with you! Our Lord is calling His people out of the world. I think all who are open to Him are feeling it, as you are. I hope a lot of people read your blog because you have a lot of wisdom for one so young.

  3. John,
    I like your perspective on this song. (I actually went over to You Tube to listen to it in its entirety.)You are right, there are things the world does not want us to do and may even forbid us to do, but God wants and deserves otherwise.
    Thank you for the beautiful prayer which I prayed along with you.
    Gos Bless and I agree with your Mom~ keep up the great blogging!

  4. What a beautiful post John,
    I pray the prayer with you and for all those in the world to feel that magnet pulling them too. Sometimes I think God is doing head stands in heaven to get our attention, and still they do not see.
    God bless you,
