Get Up

So, I was listening to my music on iTunes the other day (with the music on shuffle like I usually do) and the song "Get Up" by Building 429 came on.    If you've been reading this blog for a while, you'll know that I'm a Building 429 fan.    Many of their songs speak very clearly to the struggles in my life and the struggles in the work in Haiti and caring for children who don't have parents who can love and care for them.

The song "Get Up" goes like this......

So it's time to get up
I'm sick of just sittin' around, yeah
It's time to get up
I'm listening to the sound, yeah
It's time to get up
'Cause all the people on the mezzanine floor
We can't forget what we were made for
Because our hands were made for reaching out, yeah
So it's time to get up

Clearly it's a call to action.   We can't forget what we were made for.   Yeah, God has made us for more than just sitting around.   God has made us for more than just watching football (something I like doing way more than the rest of my family).   God has made us for reaching out.

Reaching out to the hurting.

Reaching out to the lost.

Reaching out to the homeless.

Reaching out to those without families.

I've been talking the last few days about changing the world for the kids in Haiti.   It's time for us to get up, reach out and make a difference.

I'm excited to see what God can accomplish through us in 2014 for the kids in Haiti.

I hope you'll "Get Up" and help us too......

Tom
