All Around Me

Ah, pressed for time tonight (hint: short read). I wanted to post some song lyrics, which I normally do not do. I’ve recently read how lead singer of Flyleaf, Lacey Mosley, became a Christian. I’ve added a little bit of this at the bottom. It’s was in a church magazine.

My hands are searching for you…
My arms are outstretched towards you
I feel you on my fingertips…
My tongue dances behind my lips for you
This fire runs in through my being…
I’m not used to seeing you

I’m alive, I’m alive, I’m alive

I can feel you all around me,
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling,
Savoring this heart that’s healing

My hands float up above me….
And you whisper you love me
And I begin to fade…
Into our secret place
The music makes me sway…
The angels singing say
We are alone with you…
I am alone and they are too with you

And so I cry…
The light is white…
And I see you…

I’m alive, I’m alive, I’m alive

Take my hand I give it to you
Now you own me , all I am..
You said you would never leave me
I believe you, I beleive…
I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling,

Savoring this heart that’s healed

Flyleaf, “All Around Me”

Check Flyleaf out on iTunes and PureVolume.

Here’s how she found her way home:

“The preacher came on and started talking about experiences he’d come across in ministering, and it kind of described my whole life,” she admits. “I was shocked, but then he started talking about how Jesus died so he could take our pain away, forgive us from our sins and set us free. He started crying at one point and said he felt a suicidal spirit in the room, I felt like he was talking to me again. It made me want to turn away, but he said ‘God wants to take your pain away.'”

Mosely’s resistance walls began to melt. When church was dismissed, a fellow prisoner pulled her aside and told Mosley that she could find comfort in her heavenly father despite her earthy father never being around.

“I never knew my dad, but this really did catch my attention because this man at the church didn’t know me!,” she says with shock. “And the more he kept saying about pain, the more my heart broke into a million pieces. Finally when I was more desperate than I’d ever been, he asked if I wanted to pray, and I said ‘yes.’ I had my head in my hands, and he prayed for God’s peace to come over me. Jesus saved me, and it was the most awesome freedom I’ve ever known.”

Currently Flyleaf is featured on Yahoo! Music, in which the band states they are Christians and that they cannot seperate their faith from their music. I’ve got great respect for this group.
