Revival Starts With Me

Shiloh-UMC-logo-final-webFor a good while now, I have been trying to discern what God’s vision is for Shiloh. I have several things that have entered my mind, several possibilities, lots of ways we can serve Powell County and even how we might improve our building and grounds. I feel like God has a great mission and vision for Shiloh and wants to use us to show the love of Christ to many people. But how?

Figuring that out begins with me on my knees.

Lent is coming up and my Lenten prayer focus (really starting now) will be on Shiloh’s mission and how God wants to use us. Whether you’re part of Shiloh or not… Will you join me?

“Starts With Me” by Tim Timmons has been on my mind as I have been pondering how I can prayer for my congregation. Any sort of revival begins with me. It begins with all of us. Read the lyrics, or listen to the song, and remember that God uses us to do his work and that any sort of discernment in his mission begins with us in prayer.

What can I do to leave a legacy?
How can I speak with authority
When I can’t see You, I can’t see You
How can I know the dreams You have for me?
How do I believe beyond what I have seen?
When I can’t hear You, I can’t feel You now
Oh no, no, no

[Chorus:]
You’re my revival song, You start where I belong
On my knees, on my knees
When I am weak you’re strong, You meet me here
When I’m on my knees, on my knees
Oh, it starts with me

Why do I try to work outside of You?
Knocking down doors I shouldn’t be going through
Well, I’m so tired, I’m so tired
You take my burdens off of my shoulders
You break the lies that hold me back
So I’m not sure enough
Oh, oh, oh, oh

[Chorus:]
You’re my revival song, You start where I belong
On my knees, on my knees
When I am weak you’re strong, You meet me here
When I’m on my knees, on my knees
Yeah, it starts with me

I really wanna change the world
I really wanna sing Your song
But I know revival’s got to start with me
I really wanna change the world
I really wanna sing Your song
But I know revival’s got to start with me

[Chorus:]
You’re my revival song, You start where I belong
On my knees, on my knees
When I am weak you’re strong, You meet me here
When I’m on my knees, on my knees
You’re my revival song, You start where I belong
On my knees, on my knees
When I am weak you’re strong, You meet me here
When I’m on my knees, on my knees
It starts with me
