I Refuse

Today, I'm deciding to make my blog officially legit.

I actually created this blog in December on an impulse. I had actually been intending to, so I finally did. I actually had a post on it one time, but my friend said that she saw it and said it was super intimidating since it was one very large paragraph. So I decided to completely renovate my dead blog and start using it.

I'm also going to start using short paragraphs so people will feel more inclined to read my posts.

Like this.

See? Not as intimidating.

Enough about the process. I heard a song on the radio today called "I Refuse" by Josh Wilson. I'm not going to post all the lyrics because I think that would be too intimidating. Personally, when I read a blog where someone posts the lyrics to an entire song, I don't really feel like reading it, so if you actually want to read all of the song lyrics, go to this website:

Basically, the song was about refusing to sit around and wait for other people to do what God has called you to do. I thought it was speaking to me because I have a huge research paper to do about misconceptions of Christianity in America, and I keep procrastinating. One of my favorite lines in the song is:

"Oh, I refuse to sit around and wait for someone else/ To do what God has called me to do myself/ I could choose not to move/ But I refuse."

I think that God was basically telling me to get my pants off the ground and start working on my research paper. He was probably also telling me to start working on this blog. Personally, I think this is a good message for everyone. We all sit here on our fat butts with everything we need, not doing anything to help other people. Basically, If you want God to move through your life, you have to choose to act on what he has called you to do. We can't just be passive Christians, we have to act on what God wants us to do.

Why did I underline the word choose? Because that's a huge part of following through with God's plan for you. There's most likely nothing stopping you from acting on His plan for you, so what are you waiting for? I'm sure half of you are just lazy and would rather get to the end result of God's plan. You're too impatient to wait through the journey. That's pretty much a description of me, so I understand.

What are you waiting for? Choose to act on God's plan for your life.


  1. Yes. Much less intimidating :)

    I totally agree with that & see where you're coming from. Just today, actually, I was helping out with The Daughter Project and it really makes me think...I could do more. There's so much injustice out there and I'm all la-dee-da in my pretty little life. And I want to help.

    Anyway. That's what your post made me think of in my life.


  2. Dear Kirsti,
    I love you...and this is just an example of why. :) You're awesome!
