Edit: I'm sorry this is only playing half the song! It is so worth hearing the whole thing!
A few years ago I heard Travis Cottrell sing this song at a Beth Moore Conference! It became my life song! I remember seeing Beth worship at the beginning! She was so passionate for her Lord! I said "God I want that!" I think it was during that conference or maybe some other time I heard Beth speak, but she said "If you don't have it pray too!" You know like if you don't have passion for Christ Pray for it! If you don't have a desire to be in the word Pray for it! and so on! God will always answer those prayers in yes, because he wants you to know him and love him, because he loves you! I pray that often! I so desire to grow closer to God! It is a journey and sometimes my selfishness gets in the way, but HE is faithful!
I am a stranger in this place
this world is not my home
I want more then it can give
I am a desert needing rain
I'm thirsty for your voice
the very reason that I live!
Chorus: You are the Word, my one desire
an all-consuming holy fire
the very breath that I am longing for
my heart is desperate for your ways
refine me in Your holy blaze
if that is what it takes to know You more
Your are the truth that sets me free
YOUR WORD IS LIFE TO ME!
Only the power of your Word
can melt away these chains
that have held me for too long
so light the fire and let it burn
these shackles and restraints
and I will sing this freedom song!
lamp unto my feet
light unto my path
shine, shine on
