Several years after I began following the Lord, having had a taste of present-day Christianity from various and sundry stripes and flavors, a cry was birthed in my heart that wouldn’t be silenced.
That cry was the provocation of why I began writing the books I’ve penned. And it’s what led me into the ministry (service) to the body of Christ that I have today.
This same heart-cry is shared by many (if not most) of the people who read my books and a fair number who read this blog.
Here are the lyrics, but listen to the song as well:
Lord, I groan. Lord, I kneel. I’m crying out for something real.
‘Cause I know deep in my soul there must be more . . .
Lord, I’m tired. Yes, I’m weak. I need your power to work in me.
But I can’t let go. I keep hanging’ on ’cause there must be more . . .
The song is by David Ruis. Listen to it . . . just reading the lyrics doesn’t communicate the pathos.
What other songs can you share with us that reflect a particular cry of your heart?
