This week, even in the craziness of company, Christmas,shopping, returns...I have been totally moved and challenged by worship! Brandon, one of our worship dudes, has put together an amazing set. As I have prepared to sing tomorrow at LifePoint, I am humbled and stretched at the challenges and encouragement from these songs.
I am not big on the 'new year's resolution' thing. I do however pray with all my heart that I can pursue God with more, fall in love with Jesus more, and partner with Him more to change our world! I have to share bits of these songs with you and hope you get the "Wow" that I got!
SMS (Shine)-David Crowder Band: "Shine your light so I can see you, Hold me up, I need to be near you; Hold me, I need to feel loved; Can you overcome this heart that's overcome".
Take What's Left Of Me-The Glorious Unseen: "Will you be my eyes when I cannot see; will you be my voice when I cannot speak; will you be my hands when I cannot reach; Father, take what's left of me."
Reign In Us-Ben Glover, Jon Neufeld, and Tim Neufeld: "Oh great and might one, with one desire we come; that you would reign, that you would reign in us; We're offering up our lives; a living sacrifice; that you would reign, that you would reign in us...We need your perfect love, we need your discipline; we're lost unless you guide us with your light...we cry out for your life to revive us, cry out; cry out for your love to define us, cry out, for your mercy to keep us blamesless until you return...".
I can only pray that I can have such desire and discipline to allow God to reign in me and purify me, and be more like Him in 2010 than I have ever been. Wow!
