Strike it Up, Like a Match {Lyric Photoshoot}

Hello, folks! 😀 How are you guys doing today? Bien, no? 🙂

Anyway, I wanted to show you some pictures I took of a huge bonfire we burned. It was so much fun! Dad collected a big pile of scrap wood and such, and our family and cousins and grandparents came over for a picnic after we lit it. (Side note: isn’t it simply amazing that we had a picnic in FEBRUARY?! I don’t know about where you guys live, but it is so wondrously warm here! I think spring is going to be early this year.)

And to break up the huge amount of pictures, I decided to make this a sort of lyric photoshoot with the words from TobyMac’s “Like A Match”. I didn’t use the whole song; just parts of it. You can play this video if you want to hear the whole song.

Alright, now we can finally start. 🙂

I keep hearin’ people say, “I need a getaway.”
We got that getaway that takes ‘em to a whole new place.

Won’t leave us empty, won’t leave us craving more,
We found that fulfillin’ fire that they been lookin’ for.

If it’s real, we gotta show it…
‘Cause if it’s not, they sure gonna know it.

You and me, we gotta love.
Hold nothing back!

Burnin’ for the world, we’re
Burnin’ for the world,
Burnin’ for the world to see.

You and me, we gotta love.
Strike it up, like a match.

I call up all my friends, I gotta let ‘em in
I tell ‘em, “take a drink of this and never thirst again!”

If it’s real, we gotta show it,
‘Cause if it’s not, they sure gonna know it.

Burnin’ for the world, we’re
Burnin’ for the world,
Burnin’ for the world to see.

You and me, we gotta love
Strike it up, like a match.

This isn’t my favorite TobyMac song ever, but I still love it, and I think the words are so true.  It’s one thing to say you believe something, to say you’re a Christian, but it’s another thing to really act on that belief, to “burn for the world to see.” It’s hard to be a “match” and burn like that for others. That’s something I really need God’s help to work on, because I simply can’t do it on my own. But thankfully, I don’t have to! God is the most powerful spark in the world.

Well, thank you guys for reading this! I hope you enjoyed the post and the pictures. 🙂 Have a wonderful day, wonderful people! ♥

  1. Great pictures! Fire is so amazing!
    I like how you include the video in the post, so I can play it as I look through the pictures and read the lyrics (rather than having no idea how the song goes). And, since it’s Toby Mac, I know it’ll be clean! 🙂

    1. Heh heh, I suppose it was a little dangerous, but my dad and granddad and uncle were all there to help in case something went wrong. And plus, we’ve done this a few times before. 🙂
