I was praying and this song came on and it blew me away how the words effected my life. I am a big big big U2 fan. God started to really speak to me about some things in my life via this song. Here are the lyrics, I hope them impact you the same way they impacted me this morning:

 YAHWEH

Take these shoesClick clacking down some dead end streetTake these shoesAnd make them fitTake this shirtPolyester white trash made in nowhereTake this shirtAnd make it clean, cleanTake this soulStranded in some skin and bonesTake this soulAnd make it singYahweh, YahwehAlways pain before a child is bornYahweh, YahwehStill I’m waiting for the dawnTake these handsTeach them what to carryTake these handsDon’t make a fist noTake this mouthSo quick to criticiseTake this mouthGive it a kissYahweh, YahwehAlways pain before a child is bornYahweh, YahwehStill I’m waiting for the dawnStill waiting for the dawn, the sun is coming upThe sun is coming up on the oceanThis love is like a drop in the oceanThis love is like a drop in the oceanYahweh, YahwehAlways pain before a child is bornYahweh, tell me nowWhy the dark before the dawn?Take this cityA city should be shining on a hillTake this cityIf it be your willWhat no man can own, no man can takeTake this heartTake this heartTake this heartAnd make it breath

 Now U2 are not the American Christian rule following type, but if you can not see a call from God in this song, you may have your head buried in the sand a little bit. Live your life better today.
