Then Sings My Soul---Slow Fade!

I really hadn't planned to do the "Then Sings my Soul" meme today because nothing was coming to me. There are so many songs I like but none that jumped out at me this week.....

That is until just now. I was reading another blog post entitled "what has control of you?" It challenged me to ponder: what am I looking at & thinking about, where am I investing my time and energy? Like a river over the course of time these thoughts and actions carve out who I am and determine my character, as well as the fruit my life produces.

I like how this song implies that the sin habits and strongholds in our lives aren't always the result of one bad decision or action but often it is a slow fade from an action to a habit to a lifestyle.....

Anyway, I love the song and I wanted to share it sure to check out other songs that sing to the soul at Signs, Miracles and Wonders!

I love the entire album by Casting Crowns. The words they have shared in the songs are so true...Especially this song "Slow Fade". Sometimes we are so consumed with things, that we forget the most important part in our life - staying close to Him and His Word.

Thank you so much for sharing your reflection.

Kelley... this is a great song! I can't say that I've ever heard one by Casting Crowns that wasn't. LOL! They were Brent's FAVORITE group. The lead singer (Mark ... I can't remember his last name... is it Hall?) called Brent once.

A young couple that worked with the youth in our church contacted him and told him about Brent's admiration of the group so they took my cell number and called us. I think he talked with Brent 20 minutes or so. They are an amazing group of people with TREMENDOUS hearts!

Thanks for helping me recall that sweet memory. =-)

Love Casting Crowns but wasn't familiar with that. Wow, those are some great truths in that song.

Love all of Casting Crowns songs. The radio station I listen to in my car, 88.3, Family Life Network, plays them all the time. The truths are so powerful. I find God uses music to speak to my heart so often. Thanks for sharing this song.
Have a great day tomorrow,

Casting Crowns is my favorite. I listen to it all the time! Thanks for sharing this.
Every time I see your picture, I feel like I know you for real... in real life. Either you have a twin, or we have met before. Do you know if we have or do you just remind me of someone?
