I'm in My Own Little World

This song recently came out, by Christian singer/songwriter Matthew West. I really like his music, and this is one of my favorite songs so just really strikes me how true this can be of all of us! Read the words, listen to the music, and ponder, dear friends. Are we stuck in "our own little worlds?"

~My Own Little World~
by Matthew West

In my own little world it hardly ever rains
I’ve never gone hungry, always felt safe
I got some money in my pocket, shoes on my feet
In my own little world
Population me

I try to stay awake through Sunday morning church
I throw a twenty in the plate but I never give ’til it hurts
And I turn off the news when I don’t like what I see
It’s easy to do when it’s
Population me

(Chorus)What if there’s a bigger picture
what if I’m missing out
What if there’s a greater purpose
I could be living right now
Outside my own little world.

Stopped at the red light, looked out my window
I saw a cardboard sign said “Help this homeless widow”
Just above that sign was the face of a human
I thought to myself, “God, what have I been doing?”

So I rolled down the window and I looked her in the eye
Oh how many times have I just passed her by
I gave her some money then I drove on through
In my own little world there’s
Population two...

I don't wanna miss what matters
I wanna be reachin' out
Show me the greater purpose
So I can start livin' right now
Outside my own little world,
My own little world.

LORD, forgive us for staying in our comfort zones, and failing to truly reach out.
