Do you ever have weeks where you just need a good song to tap your toes? Last week was one of those for me. Seemed like everything went wrong, but I made it through. With God’s help.

I love this song the Booth Brothers sing. It makes me want to get up and move. Yes, maybe even dance (gasp!). It not only has an excellent beat, but the words are amazing too. My favorite line is “every once in a while I started a fire.”

It makes me think every time. Do I light up for Jesus? Do I start fires (good ones) and show others Christ through my walk? Or do I sit around and hide my light under a bushel?

To be honest, I know there have been times when I haven’t. Shame on me. I need to light up for Christ more often. Every moment. Every day.

Even when my week is going wrong.

It’s what we’re called to do.

How about you? Do you like fires? Do you sing loud in the choir and proclaim Christ as your Lord? Share your thoughts.

Matthew 5:16 (VOICE)

You are like that illuminating lightLet your light shine everywhere you go, that you may illumine creation, so men and women everywhere may see your good actions, may see creation at its fullest, may see your devotion to Me, and may turn and praise your Father in heaven because of it.

I Played in the Band (Booth Brothers)
