Fall Apart

I've been reading through Psalms and have been reading Forgotten God by Francis Chan (GREAT book by the way!!) and have been loving the material I'm soaking in through them both. They both are speaking directly to my heart and are teaching me things about God that I have always known, but never fully taken the time to appreciate. It's really been making me ask myself some tough questions. Like, "Why am I so comfortable?" "Am I doing all that I can to follow God with 100% of who I am, despite my circumstances?" "Can I honestly say that Christ is priority in my life?" "Am I living and trusting with everything that I have on the power of the Holy Spirit or am I leaning more on my own strength and my own power and having the Spirit ready for backup?" These are tough questions to wrestle with, but they have to be asked!

This song by Josh Wilson really sums up how most people live, and some of the time I truly feel that I fall into this category-it's so easy to do! The song is called Fall Apart. If you want to hear him sing it beautifully, you certainly are more than welcome to here!

Why in the world did I think I could
Only get to know You when my life was good?
When everything just falls in place
The easiest thing is to give You praise

Chorus:
Now it all seems upside down

'Cause my whole world is caving in
But I feel You now more than I did then
How can I come to the end of me
And somehow still have all I need?
God, I want to know You more
Maybe this is how it starts
I find You when I fall apart

Blessed are the ones who understand
We got nothing to bring but empty hands, yeah
Nothing to hide and nothing to prove, yeah
Our heartbreak brings us back to You, oh

Chorus

I don't know how long this will last
I'm praying for the pain to pass
But maybe this is the best thing
That has ever happened to me

Chorus

I fall apart
I fall apart

Why in the world did I think I could
Only get to know You when my life was good?
When everything just falls in place

Have you ever taken the time to ask yourself these questions? Maybe it's time to.
