|You know my other side, I can no longer hide|
Let you down so many times
Sin freshly crucifies
I thought I had a plan, thought I had it all figured out
But the more that you tried to be by my side,
The more I put you out
Lord make me over
Time after time I have failed you,
Pierced your side, when they already nailed you
Jesus heal my open wounds,
MAKE ME OVER.
Have you ever felt this way? I have! And as I listened to these words in a song by Tonex called Make Me Over, I felt that way again. I think everyone can relate to this song, sinners and righteous ones alike, and that is the beauty of it.
So many times, we fall short of Godís glory, and so many times he gives us second and third and tenth chances. When are we going to get tired of backsliding into the same sin, the same bad habit? When are we going to have had enough of the world? When are we going to be ready for God to give us a permanent make over?
God is always there trying to be by our side, and we need to stop pushing him away. The end times are fast approaching, and we canít go up with Christ until we are made over. If you are ready to be made over, then talk to God and tell him that you donít want to sin anymore. Tell him that you want to stop fornicating and defiling your body. Tell him that you want to stop lying and bearing false witness. Tell him that you want to stop rolling with those worldly friends that continue to pull you down. Tell him that you donít want to continue to sell yourself short. Tell him that you are ready for change; that you are ready for a new beginning; that you are ready to start living the life he has called you to live. TELL HIM TO MAKE YOU OVER!!!
He can make you over and over again, but just like you get tired of falling, donít let God get tired of picking you up. Let this makeover be a permanent one.
Stay blessed and spread the word.
