NO, it's not my birthday today.
I heard a really neat song today by Casting Crowns title 'Just Another Birthday'. I have not heard it on my local radio stations. I heard it on Klove, online. It really struck me. It is so much like my own story. If you haven't heard it yet, check it out at this link.
Consider today ... for just a moment in your busy day ... ask God to bring to mind a young person (male or female) who is hurting; who might be lonely and trying desperately to fill that void in their heart and soul. If we all reach out to just one we can make a huge difference in our world. And maybe you can alter the course of a young person's life enough just by caring. Pray and ask Him.
If you want to check out what Mark Hall and Megan Garrett, from the band had to say about this new song, look here. What a powerful message they bring.
If you like Casting Crowns then you will also enjoy the release of their latest video, 'Jesus, Friend of Sinners'. Both of the songs mentioned are found on their Come To The Well CD, available everywhere Christian music is sold.
I have seen Casting Crowns live twice now. The second time they performed they played this song. It was amazing. Let the lyrics soak in. They are powerful. And not just soak in but change our hearts - just as they sing it.
The live concert I saw them at looked exactly like the video, but I am sure it wasn't filmed here. For two reasons. The night I saw them, Mark was sick with a sore throat and surviving on cold meds and Megan was not even there. Oh well, it was still great!!
