Last week, our small group went to a Shane and Shane concert. If you haven't heard of them, get some of their music. Really. They are amazing.

holy design
this place in time
that i might seek and find my God
my God

Lord i want to yearn for You
i want to burn with passion
over You and only You
Lord i want to yearn

Your joy is mine
yet why am i fine
with all my singing and bringing grain
in light of Him

oh You give life and breath
through Him You give all things
in Him we live and move
that's why i sing

or this one... Vision of You:

Come meet us, King Jesus
Oh wind of change blow through this temple
Sweet Spirit of God, come and mend our hearts
For all we have are songs
Unless You come

Awaken what’s inside of me
Tune my heart to all You are in me
Even though You’re here God come
And may the vision of You
Be the death of me
And even though you’ve given everything
Jesus come

Come free us, King Jesus
It’s the only way that freedom’s given
From You and You alone
In the work You’ve already done
For all we have are songs,
Unless You come

Here we are, Lord
In this place
Crying out for
Your embrace
To hear Your voice
More than songs
Please come
Jesus come

Anyway, I'm up late tonight. Pondering. My heart is burning (and not from the mexican food we had for dinner). I am longing. I long for the church of Christ to rise up and be what He has called her to be. It's dangerous to think these thoughts, I know.

After the concert last week, I was praying this song. I WANT to yearn for Him. I want to burn with passion for Him- only Him! And uh oh, I think He is answering me. Those are dangerous prayers to pray. But they're true.

"May the vision of You be the death of me."

Oh man. Deep thoughts for a Tuesday night.
