Your Heart

I recently downloaded the album "Music Inspired by The Story".  The album is a compilation of songs by a bunch of popular Christian artists (Jeremy Camp, Natalie Grant, Peter Furler, Michael W. Smith...just to name a few!).  Each song is based on a Biblical story and/or person in the Bible.  There are songs for Moses, Joshua, Mary, Paul...a whole bunch of "famous" Bible folks. 

One of my favorite songs is called "Your Heart", sung by Chris Tomlin, and based on the story of David.  I was stuck by the line At the end of the day, I wanna hear people say that my heart looks like Your heart.  Shouldn't that be the prayer of all believers?  That each and every day we would have a heart that looks more and more like the heart of Jesus? 
It never was about the oil dripping from my head
I never did dream beyond the pastures I could tend
It never was about the praise, not about the street parade
I didn’t really need a crowd when Goliath fell down

I never meant to woo a king with simple shepherd songs
Or hide away inside a cave, safe from danger’s arms
I never meant to wear a crown, or try to bring armies down
It never was about me and who I hoped to be

At the end of the day, I wanna hear people say
My heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart
When the world looks at me, let them agree
That my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart

I never thought I would be much more than Jesse’s kin
Who would ever dream a king would come from Bethlehem?

I know that I’ve crashed and burned, lives have been overturned
But You redeem everything, yeah, even me

At the end of the day, I want to hear people say
That my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart
When the world looks at me, I pray all they see
Is my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart

Five little stones, or a royal robe
Shepherd or king doesn’t mean a thing
Cause at the end of the day...

At the end of the day, I wanna hear people say
That my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart
Unashamed I will dance, in Your name, lift my hands
‘Til my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart
