Convicting Words

Note: I heard the following song on the amazing Christian film, "Fireproof", and as the words I heard were so amazingly true, I asked my friend, Toria, for the rest of the lyrics. While the beat in the song may be a little too heavy for some, the words are no-fluff, Biblical, and convicting! It is mainly written for dads and families, but can be very applicable to every Christian. Think about these words.

Slow Fade
by Mark Hall, Casting Crowns

Be careful little eyes what you see;
It's the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings.
Be careful little feet where you go,
For it's the little feet behind you that are sure to follow.

It's a slow fade when you give yourself away;
It's a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray.
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away.
People never crumble in a day.
It's a slow fade, it's a slow fade.

Be careful little ears what you hear;
When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near.
Be careful little lips what you say,
For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray.


The journey from your mind to your hands
Is shorter than you're thinking.
Be careful if you think you stand;
You just might be sinking.


"For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: all these evil things come from within, and defile the man." (Mark 7:21-23)

"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)

P.S. Sorry about the font sizes; I was having a hard time getting them the way I wanted them. :-S
