Better Questions? | Posted December 23, 2009
On that other, lesser-known, not-as-good, non-Christian, social networking site, I posted the same blogs that I have posted on here over the last couple of days. And if you looked at the blogs on that site, you'd see that I've been listening to Todd Agnew's new CD, "Better Questions" lately. Historically, I've not been a huge TA fan. He's got a couple of good songs out there but nothing that really grabbed my attention. This CD is different. This CD is reallllly good! And one song in particular gets right down to the root of the issue - it's called, "If You Wanted Me". In a nutshell, Todd asks out loud what we often wish we could ask God - and receive an answer. Here are the words...
I'll admit I'm glad we're not disciples, Out on a lake paralyzed with fright. 'Cause I'm afraid I might have laughed at Peter, Until he stepped out into that stormy night.
If You wanted me to walk on water, Why'd You make the solid ground seem so right?
I'll admit I'm glad I'm not King David, Ruling over everything I see. 'Cause I think I've fallen for more than Bathsheba, your creation's a temptation for me.
If You wanted me to love You only, Why'd You make the moonlight sparkle in her eyes?
I'll admit I'm glad I'm not John the Baptist, In a jail cell waiting for my day to die. 'Cause at least down here I know what we're chasing, And it's hard to trust Your dreams are so much better than mine.
If You wanted me to die to myself, Why'd You make me fall so deeply in love with life?
If You wanted me to surrender, Why'd You make these hands able to hold on so tight?
And if You wanted me to be like You, Why'd You make me like me?
Better questions? Better songs! If you haven't picked this one up yet, it's definitely worth the listen...
