Burning Boats

In the spring of 1519 a Spanish fleet set sail
Cortez told his sailors this mission must not fail
On the eastern shore of Mexico they landed with great dreams
But the hardships of the new world make them restless and weak
Quietly they whispered, "Let's sail back to the life we knew"
But the one who led them there was saying

Burn the ships, we're here to stay
There's no way we could go back
Now that we've come this far by faith
Burn the ships, we've passed the point of no return
Our life is here
So let the ships burn

In the spring of new beginnings a searching heart set sail
Looking for a new life and a love that would not fail
On the shores of grace and mercy we landed with great joy
But an enemy was waiting to steal, kill, and destroy
Quietly he whispers, "Go back to the life you know"
But the one who led us here is saying "Burn the Ships"

Nobody said it would be easy
But the one who brought us here
Is never gonna leave us alone

Saw "Revenge of the Sith" this morning at 8:30am (Got there at 4:45am to video and get a good spot in line). It was awesome...lots of cheesy acting coupled with pretty intense and dark plotlines. Gotta love "Star Wars".

Dead Heart, Now Beating

"I once was fatherless,a stranger with no hope. Your kindness wakened me, awakened me from my sleep. Your love it beckons deeply, a call to come and die. By grace now I will come and take this life, take your life. Sin has lost it's power, death has lost it's sting. From the grave you've risen victoriously! Into marvelous light I'm running, out of darkness, out of shame. By the cross you are the truth, You are the life, You are the way. My dead heart now is beating. My deepest stains now clean. Your breath fills up my lungs. Now I'm free. Now I'm free!"

This song is constantly playing in my car and on my laptop and I'm constantly singing it at the top of my lungs. It's called "Marvelous Light" and it's by Charlie Hall. You can find the live version of this song on the Passion 2005 CD called How Great is Our God. It's a great CD (also has live versions of "No One Like You" and "Indescribable"), everyone should check it out.
