I know that I’m guilty of living in my own world. Something is going on in my life and I pull all the sensors in, so to speak. I don’t look out into the world and see the pain and suffering that is out there. If I don’t see it, I can’t do anything about it. Not even pray. I’m centered on MY pain and suffering.
When this song came out in 2010 I was starting to look out of my own little world. Starting to pray for others and ask how they were doing. Asking about that medical problem that’s worrying the family. Their problems that I knew about. I would start a prayer list and I would pray for them. It’s too easy to say that you’ll keep them in prayer and then forget.
One thing that needs remedied in my own little world is shown in this video. I don’t DO something. Sometimes the only thing that you can do is pray but many times you can actually do something.
Listen to this song by Matthew West. It reminds us that there is a larger world out there.
