I Will Waste My Life

Here’s another song I love dearly… I Will Waste My Life by Misty Edwards. (Misty is one of the worship leaders at IHOP.) And it’s not just the song, it’s this video in particular. The first time I watched it, I already knew and loved the song, but when I saw this performance I literally stopped breathing. All I could think was, I recognise this. I don’t know that wimpy guy playing Jesus, but that girl… so enamored, so in love, so ready to just take his hand and dance to the ends of the earth without looking back… I know her because she’s me.

And the moment at 2:40… yeah. I definitely recognise that moment too.

Waste is one of my favourite words in the English language. I have magazine cutouts spelling WASTE taped up on the wall over my bed. It always reminds me of Mary of Bethany, and how she wasted her perfume on Jesus’ feet.

Ah. Yes. Anyway, watch it.


More Than Worth My Time

All My Devotion by Kristene Mueller-DiMarco. This song exemplifies to me much of why I want to go to IHOP.

Beautiful Man
Beautiful God
You’re more than worth my time
You’re more than worth these longings of my heart left unfulfilled
For a time

And I know you don’t come as easy as some
But I will watch and pray
I will watch and pray
