Casting Crowns – Somewhere In The Middle lyrics

Somewhere between the hot and the cold
Somewhere between the new and the old
Somewhere between who I am and who I used to be
Somewhere in the middle, You'll find me

Somewhere between the wrong and the right
Somewhere between the darkness and the light
Somewhere between who I was and who You're making me
Somewhere in the middle, You'll find me

Just how close can I get, Lord, to my surrender without losing all control

Fearless warriors in a picket fence, reckless abandon wrapped in common sense
Deep water faith in the shallow end and we are caught in the middle
With eyes wide open to the differences, the God we want and the God who is
But will we trade our dreams for His or, are we caught in the middle?
Are we caught in the middle?

Somewhere between my heart and my hands
Somewhere between my faith and my plans
Somewhere between the safety of the boat and the crashing waves

Somewhere between a whisper and a roar
Somewhere between the altar and the door
Somewhere between contented peace and always wanting more
Somewhere in the middle You'll find me

Just how close can I get, Lord, to my surrender without losing all control

Lord, I feel You in this place and I know You're by my side
Loving me even on these nights when I'm caught in the middle

    This song really fits me, why I use to choose between My Faith and my Dreams, I use to Choose between right and wrong.
    But I uses to choose unrightful things, I choose my dream over my faith. I use to study than having my mission to serve Hum. But I know he still forgives me. I know He understand me. I know what He wanted me to be, I know he forgive me, but every time I'm praying or going to church, I feel guilty by what decision I've made. I feel pain inside I hate it, and it hunts me everyday. I know he understand me and he considered me, Me, myself didn't realize having a considerations. It's always me, I'm not thinking of him. It's always me. I need to repent because I'm selfish. And I'm hurt by my actions.

    This song really speaks to everyone! It speaks of the inconsistencies and compromises we found ourselves in too often. We may not like it or want it, but such are the dilemmas we face everyday of our lives. I think this is what the apostle paul must have meant when he said; I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do, but what I hate I do. We are caught in the middle. That is why we need to depend on god always because he alone can give us the strength and the courage to rise above from these challenges of our christian life.

    It's talking about the battle of the mind. And once we find christ we need to surrender to his will even if it is not in our plan. I always ask myself, "what would jesus do" and it keeps me from getting stuck in the middle. We may be confused at a certain point in our lives between what feels right and what is truly righteous. What feels right usually isn't the right thing to do.
