Worship Matters – “Empty Me”

This past weekend we were talking about humbling ourselves and submitting to the Lord in terms of our financial giving. Pastor Chris delivered an awesome message. We also used some great music to help prepare the congregation for the message.

One of the songs we used is “Empty Me” by Chris Sligh. American Idol fans will remember Chris as an incredible singer from that show. “Empty Me” is an amazing song that is really a prayer, asking God to help us empty ourselves of selfish ambition and be filled with Christ and His desires for us. Powerful. 

I’ve had just enough of the spotlight
When it burns bright
To see how it gets in the blood
And I’ve tasted my share 
Of the sweet life
And the wild ride
And found a little is not quite enough

I know how i can stray
And how fast my heart could change

Empty me
Of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition 
And the poison of my pride
And any foolish thing my heart holds to
Lord empty me of me
So i can be
Filled with you

It’s an awesome song. I hope you enjoy this video of Chris singing “Empty Me.”
