Some great songs

These are two songs that I am absolutely loving right now, mostly due to the words. They are soooo powerful, and i have found them to be so true in my life, and especially being a youth leader I think these songs hold a lot of truth for that age too. The first one is by Chris Sligh, who was an American Idol finalist, and is now a Christian artist. And the video is a new one by Casting Crowns. It is one that gets you, fo sho. I put the lyrics to the first one so you could read them. Hope everyone is having a good week!

Empty Me

I’ve had just enough
Of the spotlight when it burns bright
To see how it gets in the blood
I’ve tasted my share
Of the sweet life and the wild ride
And found a little is not quite enough
I know how I can stray
And how fast my heart could change

Empty me of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition and the poison of my pride
And any foolish thing my heart holds onto
Lord, empty me of me so I can be filled with you

I’ve seen just enough
Of the quick buys of the best lies
To know how prodigals can be drawn away

‘Cause everything is a lesser thing
Compared to you, compared to you
‘Cause everything is a lesser thing
Compared to you, so I surrender all

Slow Fade

i have been listening to that casting crowns song a lot too. my mom is with jeka in cali and she said it keeps coming to her mind b/c of all she sees out there. i think i am gonna post about it too. people play with fire way too much in the name of not being legalistic or rigid...sometimes it leads to destruction before you even know it. thanks for sharing.
