Casting Crowns – The Alter and the Door

The Alter and The Door by Casting Crowns

Careless, I am reckless

I’m a wrong way traveling, slowly unraveling shell of a man

Burnt out, I’m so numb now

That the fire’s just an ember way down in the corner of my cold, cold heart

Lord, this time I’ll make it right

Here at the altar I lay my life

Your kingdom come but my will was done

My heart is broken

As I cry

Like so many times before

But my eyes

Are dry before I leave the floor Oh Lord,

I try

But this time, Jesus, how can I be sure

I will not lose my follow-through

Between the altar and the door?

Here at the altar

Oh my world so black and white

How could I ever falter

What You’ve shown me to be right

Lord, this time

I’ll make it right

Here at the altar I lay my life

Your kingdom come but my will was done

My heart is broken

I’m trying so hard

To stop trying so hard

Just let You be who You are Lord,

who You are in me

Jesus, I’m trying so hard

To stop trying so hard

Just let You be who You are Lord,

who You are in me.

Casting Crowns

Have a Blessed Sunday!

    • Amen Laura! When I wrote my post in early January about my ‘word(s)’ of the year being ‘follow through’ I kept thinking of this song. I can have so many great ideas or inspiration or things I want or need to do but my follow through doesn’t always show up!
