I am currently tweaking my next post. I revisited my last post, Religion or Relationship, and remembered a song the Lord gave me three years ago. The words are even more compelling as I read them/sang them this a.m. than they were when He first dropped the song into my spirit. These words are worth reading and pondering, even if not being able to hear the music that accompanies them. See below…

TOO MUCH RELIGION

Words & Music Copyright Tammy Sorenson/the arts express’d/Jaran Ministries 2008

VERSE

HEAR THE CRIES OF THE UNBORN, YET MURDER IS A CRIME
BAN SPEECH FOR SOME, BUT FOR OTHERS IT’S FINE
REDEFINE THE FAMILY TO FIT OUR CURRENT NEED
THIS GENERATION‘S ON TO THIS, LONGING US TO SEE
THAT THERE’S

 

CHORUS 1
TOO MUCH RELIGION AND NOT ENOUGH TRUTH
TOO MUCH HYPOCRISY CONFRONTING OUR YOUTH
TOO MUCH OF LIVING ALL FOR MYSELF
DON’T WANT MY DESTINY SITTING ON SOME SHELF

CHORUS 2
THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY
THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUTH
THERE IS ONLY ONE LIFE
AND HE IS CALLING MY NAME
HIS LOVE FOR ME IS TRUE
NOW’S THE TIME FOR CHANGE
‘CUZ HE’S RETURNING SOON

BRIDGE 1
I WANT TO WALK IN FREEDOM; I JUST WANT TO BE REAL
IS THERE ANY ONE WHO TRULY LOVES
AND WANTS TO KNOW HOW I FEEL
STOP POLLUTING, CONTROLLING EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE
WITH THINGS SO UNREAL, PERVERTED, CONTRIVED

CHORUS 1
TOO MUCH RELIGION AND NOT ENOUGH TRUTH
TOO MUCH HYPOCRISY CONFRONTING OUR YOUTH
TOO MUCH OF LIVING ALL FOR MYSELF
DON’T WANT MY DESTINY SITTING ON SOME SHELF

CHORUS 2
THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY
THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUTH
THERE IS ONLY ONE LIFE
AND HE IS CALLING MY NAME
HIS LOVE FOR ME IS TRUE
NOW’S THE TIME FOR CHANGE
‘CUZ HE’S RETURNING SOON

BRIDGE 2
I WANT TO WALK IN FREEDOM; I JUST WANT TO BE REAL
I’VE FOUND THE ONE WHO TRULY LOVES
AND WANTS TO KNOW HOW I FEEL
IN HIM I AM CHOSEN, MADE NEW AND ALIVE
RIGHTEOUS AND HOLY; A PURE SPOTLESS BRIDE

CHORUS 1
TOO MUCH RELIGION AND NOT ENOUGH TRUTH
TOO MUCH HYPOCRISY CONFRONTING OUR YOUTH
TOO MUCH OF LIVING ALL FOR OURSELVES
DON’T WANT OUR DESTINIES SITTING ON SOME SHELVES

CHORUS 2
THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY
THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUTH
THERE IS ONLY ONE LIFE
AND HE IS CALLING OUR NAME
HIS LOVE FOR US IS TRUE
NOW’S THE TIME FOR CHANGE
‘CUZ HE’S RETURNING SOON

HE IS CALLING YOUR NAME
JESUS IS CALLING YOUR NAME
HE IS CALLING YOUR NAME
‘CUZ HE’S RETURNING SOON
