my hearts cry...

yesterday as Daniel and i we lifting weights, i was struck by these powerful words that were belting loudly from the wall speakers. I paused and listened carefully to every word...

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

Some of you probably recognize these words from a new up and coming artist Chris Sligh.
I think where I am right now on my spiritual walk with the Lord, these words have settled in my heart...and now have become my hearts cry.
God never said our journey would be easy. In fact as you look through Scripture those who faithfully served the Lord had HARD lives (some even gave their lives for the Gospel). May we live our lives in service to the Lord...DAILY!

Oh and if you haven't heard this song, you should listen to it. I really like this one in particular because it is a live acoustic version...

I will be praying for you Magen. This too has been the cry of my heart for a while now. I know for sure since I before I went to China. I think this part of the spiritual walk is important for a child of God. When we are empty of ourselves, it is then that God can use us for our full potential because He fills us with Him.
