Monday's Music Review - Somewhere in the Middle

Song Title: Somewhere in the Middle (#7 on album)
Album Title: The Altar and the Door
Artist(s): Casting Crowns

(Hear the song here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=4WN37XYqrmY):


Somewhere between the hot and the cold
Somewhere between the new and the old
Somewhere between who I am and who I used to be
Somewhere in the middle,
You’ll find me

Somewhere between the wrong and the right
Somewhere between the darkness and the light
Somewhere between who I was and who You’re making me
Somewhere in the middle, You’ll find me

Just how close can I get, Lord,
to my surrender without losing all control

Fearless warriors in a picket fence,
reckless abandon wrapped in common sense
Deep water faith in the shallow end
and we are caught in the middle
With eyes wide open to the differences,
the God we want and the God who is
But will we trade our dreams for His
or are we caught in the middle
Are we caught in the middle

Somewhere between my heart and my hands
Somewhere between my faith and my plans
Somewhere between the safety of
the boat and the crashing waves

Somewhere between a whisper and a roar
Somewhere between the altar and the door
Somewhere between contented
peace and always wanting more
Somewhere in the middle You’ll find me

Just how close can I get, Lord,
to my surrender without losing all control

Lord, I feel You in this place and I know You’re by my side
Loving me even on these nights when I’m caught in the middle

My thoughts:

This song is very similar (in topic) to last Monday's post, so I don't feel the need to add much to what I said then. What a sweet song and how true it is. So often, we get caught in the middle: in the middle of where Christ calls us and where the world pulls us. The lyrics say it well.

In Christ,
Terra
