What Are YOU Waiting For?

January 6, 2015

Spending the very 1st Monday in January balling my eyes out was not quite the way I planned to kick off the NEW YEAR…but my tears were nothing compared to what a friend was going through losing her 2 year old son suddenly.  So, after celebrating the sweet little life cut short too quick, I walked out of the church reminded now more than ever LIFE is short!  We are not guaranteed tomorrow and we need to LOVE those in our life and make the MOST of every day we are given on this earth!  Whether this means making a job change, getting free from something holding you down, choosing who you will follow or getting healthy, NOW is the time to do what GOD put you on earth to do and LIVE.  I found this song and want to share the lyrics because they are powerful and speak to exactly what is going through my mind at this moment!  I would never wish for another day like this Monday,  but I know God uses the hard times to get our attention and make us stronger.  I have a greater purpose going into this NEW YEAR and hope this song speaks to you too.

“What Are You Waiting For?” by Nickelback

What are you waiting for?  What are you waiting for?

Are you waiting on a lightening strike
Are you waiting for the perfect night
Are you waiting ’til the time is right?
What are you waiting for?
Don’t you wanna learn to deal with fear?
Don’t you wanna take the wheel and steer?
Don’t you wait another minute here?

What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for?

You gotta go and reach for the top
Believe in every dream that you got
You’re only living once so tell me
What are you, what are you waiting for?
You know you gotta give it your all
And don’t you be afraid if you fall
You’re only living once so tell me
What are you, what are you waiting for?

Are you waiting for the right excuse?
Are you waiting for a sign to choose
While you’re waiting it’s the time you lose
What are you waiting for?
Don’t you wanna spread your wings and fly?
Don’t you really wanna live your life?
Don’t you wanna love before you die?

What are you waiting for?  What are you waiting for?

You gotta go and reach for the top
Believe in every dream that you got
You’re only living once so tell me
What are you, what are you waiting for?
You know you gotta give it your all
And don’t you be afraid if you fall
You’re only living once so tell me

What are you, what are you waiting for?

[2x]
Tell me what you’re waiting for?
Show me what you’re aiming for?
What you gonna save it for?
So what you really waiting for?

Everybody’s gonna make mistakes
But everybody’s got a choice to make
Everybody needs a leap of faith
When are you taking yours?

What are you waiting for?
