do something!

Posted by Candice Scatliff, With 1 Comments, Category: Blog Post,
Driving to work this morning a Matthew West song came on the radio, and the lyrics hit HOME. This to why we are here. And it was a perfect reminder for me. Tom and I have always said, if those who are willing and able don't do something, then who will? We are so thankful for the opportunity to do something. And we are so grateful for all of our supporters who are doing something by sustaining us! Here are the lyrics to the song, and below is a link to a video by Matthew West. The video features a young woman who also stood up and just did something.  
I woke up this morning Saw a world full of trouble now Thought, how’d we ever get so far down How’s it ever gonna turn around So I turned my eyes to Heaven I thought, “God, why don’t You do something?” Well, I just couldn’t bear the thought of People living in poverty Children sold into slavery The thought disgusted me So, I shook my fist at Heaven Said, “God, why don’t You do something?” He said, “I did, I created youIf not us, then who If not me and you Right now, it’s time for us to do something If not now, then when Will we see an end To all this pain It’s not enough to do nothing It’s time for us to do something I’m so tired of talking About how we are God’s hands and feet But it’s easier to say than to be Live like angels of apathy who tell ourselves It’s alright, “somebody else will do something” Well, I don’t know about you But I’m sick and tired of life with no desire I don’t want a flame, I want a fire I wanna be the one who stands up and says, “I’m gonna do something” If not us, then who If not me and you Right now, it’s time for us to do something If not now, then when Will we see an end To all this pain It’s not enough to do nothing It’s time for us to do something We are the salt of the earth We are a city on a hill (shine shine, shine shine) But we’re never gonna change the world By standing still No we won’t stand still No we won’t stand still No we won’t stand still If not us, then who If not me and you Right now, it’s time for us to do something If not now, then when Will we see an end To all this pain It’s not enough to do nothing It’s time for us to do something [x3]
