What do you mean when you sing?

Do you recognize any of these lyrics?

I laugh when I hear them, but I want to cry a little, too.

We’re hosting a singing at our house Sunday afternoon.
Maybe we should watch this video first?

Lord, if we don’t mean what we sing, change our hearts so we do.

What songs are hard for you to sing if you’re really being honest with yourself and God?

That was too funny and yet I agree; it was also a bit sad and true. The song that I identify mostly with is "I Surrender All". When I sing this song, I mean it. But I find myself struggling with surrendering it ALL to Him at times.

Great TSMSS choice Lisa!

Blessings and love,

I agree with Debbie!
The one I most identify with is `I Surrender All`
It is a funny video, but I had tears in my eyes as I could admittedly relate to some.

I love this! (in a sadly funny sort of way) And yes, you should show it tomorrow - that would be great. :) The "I Surrender Some" and "I Exalt Me" definitely convict me... I know I sing the 'right' words to those songs, but day to day I probably live more like what I just watched - ouch.

I felt that way too, it's funny but sad at the same time. Makes me want to really grab onto the wonderful lyrics that we sing and make them a real, living part of my life! ~Holly

If I can get it to work tomorrow, I'll definitely play it.

The song I related to most was "How Great Is This Song" because that's what I notice us saying the most when we finish singing something. :-) "I love that song", "What a wonderful song", "We did that one well!", etc. I don't think we mean it bad--we love the song because it speaks wonders about God, etc., but still...

Now you'll notice too. :-)
