Have I?

Whenever the New Year comes around, I find myself thinking back on the year before, and ask myself and the Lord if I really did all I could and in what areas I could stand to do better in the new year. I think it’s good once in a while to do a little introspection, not to get down about myself, but in order to avoid becoming complacent in my life. The Sealed recently (finally) published their album, which for me is a jewel…a complete CD of Vas, with hardly a song I need to skip. I’ll do a review on it one of these days just cause I like it so much. Anyway, one of the songs spoke to me during this time, asking just the questions I want to ask myself.

Have I?

Have I loved my neighbor as myself?

Have I truly thought of someone else?

Do I live for others the way I should

Or do I hold back for my own good

I search my heart, I judge my soul


Have I spent my time in every day

Thinking of how to help in any way?

Have I, have I loved You more than myself?

Have I, Oh, have I?

The Word that I’ve been drinkin’

Shocked and got me thinkin’

Shone the light on what divides in two

I let my pride come through and stand between me and You

I’m wrong, I know and see my faults, though slowly,

And choose love

Have I taken my eyes off the Maker?

Have I agreed that disrespect would cater?

Has my carnal mind kicked into gear?

Have I let the fiend talk in my ear?

I search my heart, I judge my soul

Does selfless will sustain control?


The Word that I’ve been drinkin’

Shocked and got me thinkin’

Shone the light on what divides in two

I let my pride come through and stand between me and You

I’m wrong, I know and see my faults, though slowly,

And all I can do is humbly beg of You

To forgive me, I’m mistaken

Can’t believe it’s taken all

All this time

To change my ways

And choose love

I search my heart, I judge my soul

Does selfless will sustaincontrol?

  1. Haven’t heard the song yet but good words, convicting. Also thanks for all the beautiful pic’s you’ve posted so far. Any more video’s? I love the one of Cherise reading to Jordan. Got any of their Cmas shows? We love you all and keep you in our prayers.

  2. I have more videos, hopefully in the next few days which will be holidays for us I’ll have time to track them all down and post a few. The song is number 6 on the Sealed album…it’s not as rocky as the rest, a bit slower…but very very good.
