Somewhere In The Middle

A fellow Sunday told Angie over at Bring The Rain about a Casting Crowns song called "Somewhere In The Middle". I had this Casting Crowns CD downloaded but hadn't listened to this song yet. As I was reading what the Sundays were saying about the song and how Angie needed to listen to it, and it was like God was waving in my face saying " Hey, hey you, they are talking about you too. GO LISTEN TO THAT SONG". So when God is so blatantly trying to teach me something, I like to think it is a good idea to listen. ;-) I played that song and boy was God teaching (preaching to me) with it. Teaching as well as comforting. It really is an AWESOME song. Here are the lyrics:

Somewhere between the hot and the cold
Somewhere between the new and the old
Somewhere between who I am and who I used to be
Somewhere in the middle, You'll find me
Somewhere between the wrong and the right
Somewhere between the darkness and the light
Somewhere between who I was and who You're making me
Somewhere in the middle, You'll find me

Just how close can I get, Lord, to my surrender without losing all control

Fearless warriors in a picket fence, reckless abandon wrapped in common sense
Deep water faith in the shallow end and we are caught in the middle
With eyes wide open to the differences, the God we want and the God who is
But will we trade our dreams for His or are we caught in the middle
Are we caught in the middle

Somewhere between my heart and my hands
Somewhere between my faith and my plans
Somewhere between the safety of the boat and the crashing waves
Somewhere between a whisper and a roar
Somewhere between the altar and the door
Somewhere between contented peace and always wanting more
Somewhere in the middle You'll find me

Just how close can I get, Lord, to my surrender without losing all control

Lord, I feel You in this place and I know You're by my side
Loving me even on these nights when I'm caught in the middle
Casting Crowns- Somewhere In The Middle

Point taken Lord. Thank you. I'm glad I had my ears open to hear You and thank you for speaking to me. Thank you for loving me even when I'm in the middle.
