"Refine Me" as written by and Kim Bontrager....
I come into this place
Burning to receive your peace
I come with my own chains
From wars I've fought for my own selfish gain
You're my God and my Father
I've accepted your Son
But my soul feels so empty now
What have I become?

Lord, come with your fire
Burn my desires; refine me
Lord, my will has deceived me
Please come and free me
Refine me

My heart can't see
When I only look at me
My soul can't hear
When I only think of my own fears
They are gone in a moment
You're forever the same
Why did I look away from You
How can I speak Your name?

Lord, come with Your fire
burn my desires; refine me
Lord, my will has deceived me
Please come and free me
Come rescue this child
For I long to be reconciled to You

It's all I can do
To give my heart and soul to You
And pray, and pray, oh I will pray

Lord, come with Your fire
burn my desires; refine me
Lord, my will has deceived me
Please come and free me
Come rescue this child
For I long to be reconciled to You

Refine me, refine me
Refine me, refine me

    General CommentThis song is pretty self-explanatory...I just love these lines:

    "When I only think of my own fear, they are gone in a moment. You're forever the same thing."

    Why should we fear such fleeting things? We are so stupid and really just prideful to think that these earthly things are worth stressing about.

    General CommentThis is one of my fav Jenn Knapp songs. I get chills every time i hear it.
    "Why did I look away from You? How can I speak your name?" AMAZING!!!! We can never explain why we turn away. and sometimes it's so hard to talk to God, knowing the pain we cause him by our sins.

    My prayer is always, "burn my desires, refine me". Powerful!
