Good Words Spotlight My Thoughts & Actions

. at . 1 comment

1166377_white_fenceMusic is powerful. The lyrics can make me depressed and angry or elicit positive emotions and growth. Good words spotlight what’s going on in my heart and actions. They can reassure that I’m doing fine. Bolster my resolve to keep on with a course of action/thought.  Or the words challenge me to change in an area.

Finally, good lyrics dare me to grow into more maturity, health, obedience and love.

Somewhere in the Middle by Casting Crowns – Lyrics

Contemplating the below verse . I want to consistently choose the God who is over the God I want . . .

Fearless warriors in a picket fence, reckless abandon wrapped in common sense
Deep water faith in the shallow end and we are caught in the middle
With eyes wide open to the differences, the God we want and the God who is
But will we trade our dreams for His or are we caught in the middle?
Are we caught in the middle?

Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns – Lyrics

Below are some of the lyrics  that tell where I want to go with my journey of faith. Let’s listen to the voices of truth together . . .

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of faith it takes to climb out of the boat I’m in
Onto the crashing waves

To step out of my comfort zone
To the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He’s holding out his hand

But the waves are calling out my name and they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times I’ve tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me
Time and time again “Boy, you’ll never win!’
“You’ll never win”

But the voice of truth tells me a different story
And the voice of truth says “Do not be afraid!”
And the voice of truth says “This is for My glory”
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

Stained Glass Masquerade by Casting Crowns – Lyrics

I am blessed to have friends who are honest about their journey with God. They help me to talk  about rather than tuck away my feelings and growth areas . . .

Is there anyone that fails?
Is there anyone that falls?
Am I the only one in church today, feeling so small?
Cause when I take a look around
Everybody seems so strong
I know they’ll soon discover
That I don’t belong
So I tuck it all away
like everything’s OK
If I make em all believe it
Maybe I’ll believe it too
So with a painted grin
I’ll play the part again
So everyone will see me
The way that I see them

What do these songs say about your journey with God?
