Save us from these comforts.
Break us of our need for the familiar
Spare us any joy thats not of You
And we will worship You

This is one of my favorite choruses on my upcoming album.
It brings out strong reactions in people.
Im finding 2 reactions the most popular.

1. What? Really? Cmon. You dont really want to sing that.
2. Oh my God. This is the chorus that my church has needed to sing for years. I cant sing it enough. BREAK US LORD!!!

Through my conversations with the reactionaries I am finding some things to be consistent.
Those who are comfortable in their faith really arent hip with too much disturbance and disruption in their mojo.
I get it.
If things are good. If things are stable, why ask God to save us from these comforts?
And those who are desiring somethingmorefrom whatever it is they are searching for, are singing this chorus until their voices give out.

Neither is wrong. Neither is right.
But I do know this.
I grow in my faith the most when I am disturbed and disrupted.
I get a spiritual fat @** when Im not.

This chorus is taken from a book of Puritan prayers.
Those guys wanted something extra.
Something I dont quite understand. Or didnt.
Until I met Danny.

Danny is a homeless guy in Atlanta who happened to walk up on me while I was shooting the EPK for my new record.
I was singing the songGod Of Second Chances.
Danny walks upkneels downstarts cryingputs his hands up in the airand

If you listen carefully at the end you hear me saying this to Danny.
Keep trying to make it man.
He looked me square in the eyecocked his head sideways with a confused look on his faceand said,
Trying to make it? No man. I aint trying to make itIm making it. Jah puts His soldiers everywhere. Jah says, Yea though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death So He places some of us, in that valley.

Game, set, match

Save us from these comforts.
Break us of our need for the familiar
Spare us any joy thats not of You
And we will worship You

Carlos
