The Man Who Can’t be Moved

Going back to the corner where I first saw you
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag, I’m not gonna move
Got some words on cardboard, got your picture in my hand
Saying if you see this girl can you tell her where I am

Some try to hand me money, they don’t understand
I’m not broke I’m just a broken hearted man
I know it makes no sense, but what else can I do
How can I move on when I’ve been in love with you

‘Cause if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be
Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we’d meet
And you’d see me waiting for you on the corner of the street

So I’m not moving
I’m not moving

Policeman says son you can’t stay here
I said there’s someone I’m waiting for if it’s a day, a month, a year
Gotta stand my ground even if it rains or snows
If she changes her mind this is the first place she will go

‘Cause if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be
Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we’d meet
And you see me waiting for you on the corner of the street

So I’m not moving
I’m not moving
I’m not moving
I’m not moving

People talk about the guy
Who’s waiting on a girl, oh whoa
There are no holes in his shoes
But a big hole in his world

Maybe I’ll get famous as the man who can’t be moved
And maybe you won’t mean to but you’ll see me on the news
And you’ll come running to the corner
‘Cause you’ll know it’s just for you

I’m the man who can’t be moved
I’m the man who can’t be moved

‘Cause if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be
Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we meet
Oh, you see me waiting for you on a corner of the street

So I’m not moving
(‘Cause if one day you wake up, find that you’re missing me)
I’m not moving
(And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be)
I’m not moving
(Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we’d meet)
I’m not moving
(Oh, you see me waiting for you on a corner of the street)

Going back to the corner where I first saw you
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag, I’m not gonna move

I have been caught by this song for weeks already. I was trapped with the thought of “Is there really a man who could do this? Who could that be? I want to meet him! Tell me his name; I want to give him a hand. “
The song sounds too painful. A man waiting for her girl to come back; a man willing to stay to the place of remembrance just to see her again; a man wanted to be popular not because of fame but because of love, just l.o.v.e. I guess that’s what true love really meant. Even if you’re broken, even if you’re hurt, even if you’re in so much pain, still, love will always remain. You’re willing to wait and do everything for the sake of love. Love isn’t always happiness. Love also means sacrifice. Love is giving out all that you have for the person you cherish the most.
Before writing this blog post, questions were running in my mind: “But what if, the person you love doesn’t feel the same way towards you? Is it reasonable to continue or pursue the feeling you’ve treasured for a long time? Or, is it better to end it as soon as you still can?”. Then, suddenly, two words just popped out: Forgive and Forget. Forgive when someone you love couldn’t give back the way you felt for him or her. Forget until the sobs of yesterday vanish. Well, that’s not easy. It’s a process; a battle field to conquer. Chase victory and it will be yours.
“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love. “ -Mother Teresa

Simple but this also makes sense. I just got some random thoughts about this. Like: Hows? What ifs? But, I chose to shut my super curious brain.

To you who might accidentally read this: “Someday, one day, you will meet someone who will value you more than how you value him or her. True Love Waits.

Hey Evangelists!

There is an Evangelist inside all of us. We just have to realize it.  We have to acknowledge it. We have to use it. Evangelism is an important part of how a church will expand its territory. Evangelists are revivalists.

Golf

I have read a post somewhere (I couldn’t remember where I saw this) that an example of an Effective Evangelist is a great Golfer. Why? Because he uses all of his 14 clubs. The fact that I couldn’t understand why and didn’t even know how to play it, I searched for information that can help me know the reason behind that interesting idea.

Let me first share to you some facts about golf (like as if I am a rooky). According to Google, it is a ball sport that uses many types of golf clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a golf course using the fewest number of strokes. It is one of the few ball games that do not require a standardized playing area. Instead, the game is played on golf “courses”, each of which features a unique design, although courses typically consist of either nine or 18 holes.

So, what are golf clubs? A golf club is used to hit a golf ball in a game of golf. The standard set consists of 14 golf clubs. A golfer may use all the 14 clubs made from different materials and used for different hits. However, 14 is not the minimum. They are free to use any lesser number of clubs they think will be useful.

How could be a great Golfer an example of effective evangelist? Simple, he knows how to use all the 14 clubs that are inside his bag. He knows how to make combinations using all the clubs. He knows different strategies on how a hit could be successful. He knows what kind of club he’ll use to roll the ball into the cup or the holes. An effective evangelist, just like a great golfer, knows how to make combinations that will enable to hit/ roll the ball into the holes of people’s hearts. He might have more than 14 clubs that will be very useful to win souls. The territory given for an evangelist is like a golf course; he doesn’t have a standardized area to where he can play his game, to where he can do the ways of God.

As long as we know how to win souls, as long as we have strategies and/or combinations to do God’s work and bring people into the Kingdom, we are all evangelists. One of the evangelistic strategies that we are doing in our church is Kindness Evangelism.

What is kindness evangelism? It is simply an act of winning souls by blessing others. We give out free coconut juice and street foods then we share the Gospel. Simple but these are unusual to people who felt that they’re unloved, lost and misunderstood.

So why do we have to do Kindness Evangelism? (you’re free to add up, these are from my point of view)
1. Through simple ways, it will open the hearts of the spiritually lost.
2. It will pave the way for people to see the Glory of God.
3. It will create confidence to Christians, like us, that we can change the world, make a difference and make an impact to people or nations around us.

“Kindness is a language in which the dumb can speak, the deaf can understand” C.N. Bovee

There you go, let us spread kindness evangelism! Let us take ourselves to a higher level of evangelistic deeds. You have an evangelist inside of you. Let it out!
