let them see you

In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.

This has been a very busy week full of excitement as well as insight.  The mission team working on our new campus has done so much more than I thought possible.  In the days ahead I will share with you pictures, plans and more.

While driving several times this week I heard a song that I want to share with you parts of.  It has spoken to me.  It is Let Them See You by Colton Dixon, and the words from the song are much like the words of the Bible verse above.  It asks that others see Jesus rather than see us. 

As you read these lyrics and then go through this day, may our lives point others to Jesus in every way possible.

Let Them See You

Take away the melodies
take away the songs I sing
take away all the lights
and all the songs you let me write
does the man I am today
say the words you need to say.

Let them see you, in me
let them hear you, when I speak
let them feel you, when I sing
let them see you,
let them see you, in me.

Who am I without your grace
another smile, another face
another breathe, a grain of sand
passing quickly through your hand
Id give my life, I'm not afraid
take it all, take everything…

with every breathe I breathe
I sing a simple melody
but I pray they'll hear more than a song,
In me, in me

Let them see you, in me
let them hear you, when I speak
let them feel you, when I sing
let them see you,
just let them see you, in me
let them see you.
