Falling down upon our knees Sharing now in common shame We have sought security Not the cross that bears Your name Fences guard our hearts and homes Comfort sings a siren tune We’re a valley of dry bones Lead us back to life in You
Lord we fall upon our knees We have shunned the weak and poor Worshipped beauty, courted kings And the things their gold affords Prayed for those we’d like to know Favor sings a siren tune We’ve become a talent show Lead us back to life in You
You have caused the blind to see We have blinded him again With our man-made laws and creeds Eager, ready to condemn Now we plead before Your throne Power sings a siren tune We’ve been throwing heavy stones Lead us back to life in You
We’re a valley of dry bones Lead us back to life in You We’ve become a talent show Lead us back to life in You We’ve been throwing heavy stones Lead us back to life in You
There will come a time in life when you will grow up and realize that your value does not lie in the number of times you are invited to parties or in how much or little attention you receive from other insecure people.
Find your value elsewhere. As a child of the living God.
I used to think God needed me to defend Him and come up with good arguments on His behalf.
I used to think that if I admitted I didn’t know it all that it meant there were loopholes in my faith.
I used to think I had to earn grace.
I used to think that the truth was a wimpy, fragile thing on the brink of extinction that needed my protecting; now I know the TRUTH is indestructible and everlasting and can be found in some pretty unconventional places.
