It has been a while since I was inspired and compelled to write/complete a song. For the past year and a bit I’ve had thoughts here and there, bits and pieces left in my archives, but it is amazing how conviction leads to praises and action.
This song is based on Zephaniah 3 [show]ERROR: The IP key is no longer supported. Please use your access key, the testing key 'TEST'
(maybe that’s a stretch), and it felt the most appropriate to apply the judgment upon my own life. Sometimes you fall back into a state or season of depravity and rebellion, but the good news is that we are still offered the chance to repent and rebuild our eternal relationship with God! How wonderful it is that He would still choose to reach out to us even when we have cowered into the darkness! I am so thankful that He was still calling to me, placing others in my life, convicting me of truths and my Ninevehs.
I’m still a work-in-progress (um, progressive sanctification?), but I hope you can be encouraged to seek strengthening your relationship with Jesus Christ.

Woe to me, my rebellious defiled heart; my closed ears and refusal for correction.
Woe to me, my distrust and distance.
The officials within: roaring loudly, manes flowing.
The judges: like wolves, leaving nothing till morning.
The prophets: fickle; the priests: profane.
You do not fail, yet I know no shame.
You are righteous, You’re with me, You do no injustice.
You are most fair, each dawn you do not fail.
Yet I know no shame, yet I know no shame.
Cut down this mountain, set it ablaze.
Bring me to calm pastures, lead me to graze.
Let me sing louder and louder still,
Gladness, exhaltation; may my heart You fill.
