Day 1 & 2: Closer To My King (Song)

*Deep Breath and Exhale* My first real venture into songwriting!  This is something I've always wanted to do, and for some reason or another it has never quite come to be... until now!  But let's be serious, song writing is HARD, especially with kids.  Therefore, for 2 days, I have 2 verses and a chorus.  I've always wanted my songs to be honest, if I ever got around to writing one.  So this track attempts to tackle acknowledging my insufficient nature but laying it down and giving it to Christ who has redeemed me as pure.

Thank you Lord, for the ability to write, play, and use these gifts to praise you!

I was mostly looking at verses dealing with personal sacrifice to the Lord.  Studying the verses I came across, I was struck by the constant theme that God delights in our heart's worship more than He does in just the giving.  Hence the chorus, wanting to be a pleasing offering by proclaiming my heart's desire to be closer to Him.

Hopefully the volume comes through - I had to record this during the kids bedtime while trying not to wake them up!

Here are a few of the verses I tried to draw from:

Phil 4:18-20
[...] They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God. And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen

Psalm 51:17
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Hosea 6:6
For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

Hebrews 13:15
By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
