A conversation with a friend tonight reminded me of an old song of mine–Christie the Ministry-Dater. Mattyaction, you were the inspiration for this little handiwork which I threw together to sing for the youth group in Atlanta. Shout out to Lilburn Alliance kiddoes (smile). Here are the lyrics…
I met a boy the other day–he said he wasn’t a Christian
But by the time we were holding hands, I knew my spiritual mission
‘Cause from the way that he looked in his Jimmy-Dean jeans
I knew that God really wanted me to show what love really means…
‘Cause I’m Christie the ministry-dater!
I share Jesus on Saturday night
With the boys who say they’ve never seen Him
But who say I’m really out of sight
Well, it’s a sacrifice–you believe it!
But it’s a spiritual gift, it’s true–
‘Cause I know Jesus wants all the cute boys, too!
Well, the Lord has truly blessed my weekend ministry
I’m up to fourteen boys this year alone, and it’s only early spring!
Now you may wonder how I can guard my heart…
Well, the heart is easy ’cause I just set my lips apart…
Sometimes making the most of every opportunity is hard…
So I always say a quick prayer of thanks as he slowly parks the car!
