plllllllllllllllease?

Can't get enough of this song lately. I love the idea of asking God for outrageous things.

YHWH, show me the kingdom.

He is so graceful to listen at all, but we get to make outrageous claims in his name and he backs us up.

Hmm. Lord I ask for Microsoft today.

My mind breaks at the thought of it.


b.dillon rocks.

The Kingdom

It tapped me on the shoulder
Today when I got home
I saw everything collecting dust
It made me hope there was something more
I pour over pages
Desperate to find out why
The cripple at your table
Has what I'm longing to find

Teach me how to hum it
Because I don't know the words yet

Help me see the light
I'm reaching through the fight
Yahweh, show me the Kingdom
Arms open wide
Death swallowed up by life
Yahweh, show me the Kingdom

Why are some women barren
While the wicked's house is full
The stories never seem to end
Give me evidence I'm not alone
You said the weak would be lifted up
But maybe just not yet
So while I wait in this flesh and blood
I'll learn to lean in

Help me see the light
I'm reaching through the fight
Yahweh, show me the Kingdom
Arms open wide
Death swallowed up by life
Yahweh, show me the Kingdom

The Kingdom, the Kingdom
The Kingdom, the Kingdom

Perhaps the most outrageous request ever made:

"Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me..."

Can you imagine?
