Refusing Not to Move

Was sitting at work today and saw a YouTube video of the story behind the song “I Refuse” by Josh Wilson come through for the radio station’s website. With all of the natural disasters taking place, it excites me to see the church (the people) start walking their faith out in service. I’ve included a bit of the lyrics below (click here for all) and the video. Song definitely challenges us to stop sending up empty prayers and recognize when it’s time to get out of our seats / pews and do what God has called us to do ourselves. The world’s not going to just change while we watch, that’s for sure!

This world needs God
But it’s easier to stand and watch
I could say a prayer and just move on
Like nothing’s wrong

But I refuse
‘Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care
I don’t want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse
