Narrow Me

Story Behind The Song

Being faithful to God is tough. The daily struggle in my life is really the impetus for this song.

Song Description

Sin causes us to constantly drift away from God. Sometimes we choose to ignore the signs, other times it seems to creep upon us without our even knowing it. And then, only after a major failure to we realize how far we've moved away from Him. Narrow Me describes my attitude and the focus in my life when I resist the calling of Truth. Even as a Christian I struggle with the battle to put God on the throne of my life. Eventually, truth wins out, and I determine that true happiness comes when He is on that throne and I'm yielding to Him.

Lyrics

I hear You call but I?m not listening
I got my mind set, this is what I want to do
I think I know You, when I think about You
Is it good enough that You?re on my mind
Why am I surprised that You?re a million miles away?
I only give You credit when convenience paves the way
Is it good enough? Is it good enough? Is it good enough, this is narrow me?

What is right, what is true? It?s so confusing.
I hear a voice say, this is the narrow you.
I?ve worked too hard, just to feel so empty
Is it good enough just to know I tried?
Why do I fight so hard when I?m getting near the truth?
Cause I don?t want to hear it if it messes up my view
Is it good enough? Is it good enough? Is it good enough, this is the narrow me?

This is the time when the lost are found, the lonely find a Friend and a peace that never ends
Broken hearts are mended, years of bondage ended, with a shout of praise the Lord
Praise the Lord

I hear You call, but now I?m listening
I made my mind up, this is what I?ve got to do
If I want to know You, if I want to see You
Then I?ve got to give more to You than what I?ve got to spare
You have promised me that if I seek You I will find,
It?s not my faith that makes it real, it?s true by Your design
Is it good enough? Is it good enough? Is it good enough, that this is the narrow me? This is the narrow me? This is the narrow me? This is the narrow me?
