OBSESSION

I don't know how old I was. I know I was young. It was a special moment. I'm pretty sure I was in the car with a babysitter (who later became a friend). She was a worshipper of Jesus. She was in my Dad's church, Horizon Community Church. I don't remember exactly where I was or why I was there, but I remember being in her back seat when 'Obsession' came on. I knew and liked Deliriou5?. To this day, I still do. 

If I could have lunch at Kwik Chek with anyone in the world tomorrow, it would be Martin Smith. These words came on and I remember them like needles stinging my heart and changing me forever. It might have been the first intimate moment with God in a music worship song. I cherish moments like that. I rarely remember them. I'm so glad I remember this one.


Here are the words.

What can I do with my obsession?
With the things I cannot see
Is there madness in my being?
Is it wind that blows the trees?
Sometimes you're further than the moon
Sometimes you're closer than my skin
And you surround me like a winter fog
You've come and burned me with a kiss

And my heart burns for you
And my heart burns

And I'm so filthy with my sin
I carry pride like a disease
You know I'm stubborn God and I'm longing
to be close
You burn me deeper than I know
I feel lonely without hope
I feel desperate without vision
You wrap around me like a winter coat
You come and free me like a bird

And my heart burns for you
And my heart burns for you

This worship song changed my life. 
Take seven minutes and live in this song.
Allow it to go to your heart.
