I got handed the musical baton on xanga by both daniel and courtney, but haven't done it yet. But I'm listening to the Access:D album...Deeper is track two. I was caught by these lyrics:
And the wonder of it all is that I'm living just to fall
More in love with you

Maybe I could run
Maybe I could follow
It's time to walk the path
Where many seem to fall
Hold me in your arms
Just like any father would
How long do we have to wait?
How long, we're going all the way

There's a part after "How long do we have to wait" where Martin yells out "Keep praying!" And then after he asks, "People are we going all the way?"

There's a cry in my heart right now, "How long do we have to wait?" And the answer from heaven is to keep praying and to go all the way. Keep praying!

And what am I living for? I'm living just to fall more in love with Him. Man...I've lost that.

  1. i've been going through Luke lately and today i read the part when Jesus teaches his disciples to pray and after that says "ask and it will be given to you" blah blah blah. but that whole part between the Lord's prayer and the "ask and it will be given to you" stuff was a great reminder to be persistent and helped me understand Jesus' promise more. RIGHT before Jesus says "ask and it will be given to you" he says "because of his persistence he will get up and give him as much as he needs." so yes, keep praying because it will be given to you.

  2. ah. that is good.

    in the passage we've been going through for week of prayer, zechariah 4, peter asked a good question. how many times did zechariah ask for an interpretation?

    its almost implied that if zechariah had not asked, he would not have been given understanding. interesting.

  3. yes, very interesting. that has something to do with this huge frustrating ordeal (we make it a frustrating ordeal on purpose...cuz that's the point) while doing the Mark manuscript. but i can't tell you what it is here or it might give it away to anyone who reads this that will go through the Mark Study. haha ;) but basically..yes i believe we have to ask.
