Lyrics: “Love, Where Is Your Fire?” – Brooke Fraser

Love, where is your fire? I’ve been sitting here smoking away
Making signals with sticks and odd ends and bits, still there’s no sign of a flame
Imposters have been passing, offering a good-feeling glow
But I’m holding out for what you are about – an inferno that burns to the bone
Some urge me to be temperate, lukewarm will never do

[CHORUS]
‘Cause I, I wanna (know I’ll) blaze with you
So I’m holding my heart out to you
Holding my heart out

So I stand, handing out torches
speaking words that are lamps to their feet
‘Til the time when you come an I’m whole and we are one and the fire in me is complete
Some tell me to be moderate but lukewarm will never do

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE]
Then a doubt comes to lie at the back of my mind
That I’ll offer you me and you’ll politely decline (politely decline)
So I hasten to mute it, I’ll shout and rebuke it – “away!”

I’ve listened to this song many times, but this morning it just spoke truth to my heart. I love the ways God chooses to illuminate.

Lyrics: “Break My Fall” – Lanae’ Hale

I was just listening to this song this morning and thought I’d share the beautiful lyrics with you.  Enjoy!

———————————————————————–

Seems simple enough
When everyone is gone
And the halls are empty
And my song remains unsung

Take a second to breathe
Hope for change, a breakthrough
Begin to pray for relief
From lies that silence the truth

chorus
Would You break my fall
Even though I don’t deserve it at all
Would You call my name
And heal the wounds of lonely days
When lost love mocks the heart and stains the soul
Makes it hard
Could you make these pieces into something beautiful?
I wanna be… beautiful

In the midst of it all
Try to regain composure
By first confessing this fall
That proves my need for a savior
