Share A Song Monday

Hey everyone! It’s Monday again and time to share some tunes. This might be the most somber song I have ever posted as a Monday post. But, it’s an important issue. We all need to evaluate the health of our own marriages on a regular basis.

My church has been in the middle of a series about creating margin in our lives. Yesterday, the message was about creating margin in our relationships. We watched this powerful video from Casting Crowns.

Here’s a portion of the lyrics:

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade

Sin often happens in our lives because we have not created distance between the potential sin and us. Temptations are out there. However, are we standing far enough away from temptation in order to make the wise choice when temptation occurs?

Where might you need to add margin in your life to protect your relationships?

Now, it’s your turn. What song has been on your heart lately? I want to hear it! And, perhaps, it will speak to another person’s heart today too.

    Kelli, I know the name but am not familiar with his songs. Will need to check him out.

    Eileen, I haven't heard that song for a while. I wasn't going to watch the video since I am familiar with the song, but I felt like I should watch it. I had forgotten how powerful that song is!
    Let's continue the Casting Crowns theme 🙂 I love their new one (no official video yet) called Come to the Well. It releases on my birthday – 10/18

    Heidi, I love Sanctus Real and the words to that song are so powerful.

    "I'm not alright, I'm broken inside, broken inside
    And all I go through, it leads me to You, it leads me to You

    Burn away the pride
    Bring me to my weakness
    'til everything I hide behind is gone
    And when I'm open wide with nothing left to cling to
    Only You are there to lead me on."

    Thanks for sharing this!
