Hi LookingForLyrics

Here’s a video and the lyrics
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFWFB-uI3Hg

Wake up to the sunlight with your windows open
Don't hold in your anger or leave things unspoken
Wear your red dress. Use your good dishes
Make a big mess and make lots of wishes
Have what you want but want what you have
Hmmmmm
And don't spend your life lookin’ back

Chorus
Turn up the music. Turn it up loud
Take a few chances. Let it all out
Cuz you won't regret it
Lookin’ back from where you have been
Cause it's not who you knew
And it's not what you did
It's how you live

So go to the ball game
And go to the ballet
Go see your folks your more than just on the holidays
Kiss all your children. Dance with your wife
Tell your husband you love him every night
Don't run from the truth cuz you can't get away
Oh No ... Just face it and you'll be okay

Chorus

Ohhhhh
Wherever you are and wherever you’ve been
Now is the time to begin

So give to the needy and pray for the grieving
Even when you don't think that you can
Cause all that you do is bound to come back to you
So think of your fellow man
Make peace with God and make peace with yourself
‘Cuz in the end there's nobody else

Chorus

‘Cause it's not who you knew and it's not what you did
It's how you lived

Colossians 3:16

I Really Like Some Parts 0f This Song. - - ->
So give to the needy and pray for the grieving
Even when you don't think that you can
Cause all that you do is bound to come back to you
So think of your fellow man
Make peace with God and make peace with yourself
‘Cuz in the end there's nobody else

This song has started me thinking what is the right kind of anger is and how my Words will affect other people.

" What is a righteous anger?
Righteous anger is typically a reactive emotion of anger over bullying, mistreatment, insult, abuse, ungodly habits, or malice of another, etc . . . . .
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Be angry [at sin—at immorality, at injustice, using God's name in vain, at ungodly behavior], Yet do not sin; do not let your anger cause you shame.
Don’t go to bed angry. And do not give the devil an opportunity [to lead you into sin by holding a grudge, 0r planning and thining about getting even with a person who hurts you on purpose 0r nurturing anger, 0r harboring resentment, or cultivating any revenge toward anyone]
Based on Ephesians 4:26-27

* * * * Words * * * *
"Nothing is more empathic than speaking compassionate, life-giving words.
For they release sweetness to our souls and inner healing to our beings."

Psalm 19:14
Lord, Let the Words of my mouth, be acceptable You.
And let the thoughts of my heart please You also.
You are my Rock and my Redeemer.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Psalm 141:3
Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth;
Keep watch over the door of my lips [to keep me from speaking thoughtlessly].
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Proverbs 16:24
Pleasant Words are like a honeycomb, Sweet and delightful to the soul and healing to the body.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Matthew 12:36-37
36. You can be sure of this: when the day of judgment comes, everyone will be held accountable for
every careless Word you have spoken.
37. Your very Words will be used as evidence against you, and your Words will declare you either innocent or guilty.”
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Ephesians 4:29
And never let ugly or hateful Words come from your mouth, but instead let your Words become beautiful gifts
that encourage others; do this by speaking Words 0f Grace to help them.

Hi Nancy, You are welcome.

This the first time ever a song cause me to do a Bible Study because of its lyrics.
And I do think reading any song lyrics, now, will be different for me.
