Music and Lyrics

I know it's kind of a cop out to just post song lyrics as a blog post, but I'm going to do it anyway. I'm loving this song by Kyle Matthews right now. If you haven't heard of this guy, you should really give him a listen. I love musicians who have the ability to be real, theologically sound, deep, convicting, and uplifting in their lyrics. He's one of them. On a side note, I once had lunch with him at Moe's. No big deal :-)

A Rhythm to Live By

Left to my own devices
I would lose my way
Quit my job and lie in bed all day
Or I might get so ambitious
I neglect the ones I love
Ignore the world around me
Forget what God has done

I need a rhythm to live by
Time for work and worship, rest and play
I need a rhythm to live by
Time to stop and let the Spirit have its say
Help me find the balance I was made for
From the start
I need a rhythm to live by
So my feet can keep the beat of my heart

There's a pattern to the seasons
Like the dance of day and night
And every living thing makes peace with time
But I struggle in my freedom
Like a drowning man for air
For a mission, a communion
For a Sabbath, and a prayer
