How on earth am I supposed to influence these people?!
The people God has called me to lead
The people I have been told to share God’s word
I should roll with them, understand how they do things
I should blend in with them
Try things their way
They should see that I am cool too
I should jump on the latest trend
I probably need to be a popular leader
I probably need some type of validation from my peers
I do not want to be or seem like I am opinionated or self-righteous
I should be liberal with your word
Your word that I share
wait a second God
Just one more minute on Instagram Lord
That’s one of the ways I stay in the know, Lord
Just One-minute and I’d be back to take instructions from you, Lord
Oh! just one more video, this would be the last
how on earth did one video turn into ten?
and one minute to a hundred minutes?!
How on earth Lord?!
It’s hard Lord!
To spend time with you and still listen to you clearly
To do what you what me to do, Lord
To tell the world the exact things you want me to
It is so damn hard!
How on earth can I stay trendy, in the know and still follow you, Lord!
I’d like to win souls for your Kingdom Lord
I’d like to show the world that being a young Christian isn’t boring
It can be a lot of fun
How on earth do I show them, Lord?
I probably should try to act like them, be like them, so they can accept me.
And probably they’d see you
They probably would like me and listen to what I have to say when I blend in to be like them
There is no way on earth you can achieve greatness and please God
There is no way on earth you can Godfluence these people
There are only ways from heaven that you can lead these people
Look up to heaven!
Look up to me who made these people you are so eager to please!
Look at me!
Does it make sense to please the children that I created when I am right here?
Look up to the heavens; that is the only way and how you can stay relevant
Only in looking up to me can you stand out, stay relevant even after your death
Looking on earth for relevance is looking for fame that fades; fame that doesn’t endure the test of time.
Let your mind be stayed and focused on the King of Kings
For the Vision is for an appointed time
Wait, Trust me
Don’t be in such a hurry to “blow”!
