from Artist's Hand


"Calling At The Crossroads"

What 'cha gonna do when its time to choose?
What 'cha gonna do with your life?
How you gonna use what's been given to you?
How you gonna know what is right?

There are many voices that call to you
And God's voice won't always be loud
But if you want to do what Christ wants you to
Here's a truth to think about

(Chorus)
Where your greatest source of joy
Intersects with the needs of the world
Go and find that place
And hear the Spirit calling you (calling you)
Where your greatest source of joy
Intersects with the needs of the world
Go and find that place
And hear your calling at the Crossroads

Some are gonna tell you that you must ask first
Where's the biggest money to be made?
But I will tell you there's no check that's worth
Pushing what you love away
And some are gonna tell you that growing up
Means saying no to your dreams
But I believe the Spirit wants to cross your dreams
With a wounded person's needs

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
You might be a wonderful artist
Your gift flows from deep in your soul
But someone has said there's no market
For what you do, so let it go
But I say give praise to the God who creates
And ask God to show you how
Your artistry can somehow be used
To raise up in a world that puts down

(Chorus)

Note: The idea for this song came from a statement by author Frederick Buechner: "Your calling is where your own greatest  joy intersects with the needs of the world."
