Intoxicating- David Crowder Band

Intoxicating You are to me

Illuminating You are to see

Truly breathtaking You are to breathe

Sending my head swimming You are, You see

NO excuses this time for not writing for awhile.. other than laziness that is.

Have you ever thought of laziness in itself plaguing your life? ..... me neither HA. Well i guess thats not all true. I feel the result of extreme laziness leads us towards a very submissive lifestyle. Submissive only within ourselves, convincing ourselves of a world that involves nothing but a lack of inhibition towards a future at all. This confuses the heck out of me. Although i acknowledge i fall victim to a slow paced lifestyle, sometimes misjudged to be a careless laziness,i know within myself that it is temporary. Just something i'm considering as i lay on my bed eating flaming hot Cheetos and typing. (surprisingly hard to do at the same time by the way).

Is this the life i desire? Should i not be overjoyed to live each day to the fullest? I hear this stuff all the time, mostly in church services or chapel... and yet i feel that as flawed people it is impossible to do this on your own! Which just might be the key.

If laziness is swamping my lifestyle then how do i reach out of it? What keeps me going day in and day out? Lists are always good.

1. God (so general, yet unwavering)

2. Family and Friendships (Defining who i am)

3.Africa (Hope, one of the greatest stability factors we have as humans)

I'm not sure about ya'll but i know for a fact we were not created to live life alone! I'm seeking what that means for me, I'm seeking what a life outside of laziness, outside of submission to a luke warm faith and lifestyle really entails. Its pretty wild for my mind to grasp.

And I've lost my mind, I'm sure to find

Need to apologize for my

Lack of inhibition, for my belligerent condition

But with You this near I'm dizzy

Inebriating You are to me

Completely captivating You are to see

Sending my world spinning You are, You see

And now I find a blurry line

Here between you and I

Raise the cup, drink 'til I'm full

Sing 'til I can't, 'til my voice is gone

And my head is spinning dizzy


Illuminating You are to see

Truly breathtaking You are to breathe

Intoxicating you see
