Saving the world one Todd Agnew song at a time

Now, obviously I don't know him personally, unless our one photo counts. However, from what I do know of him, he's humble enough that he'd probably be embarrassed by that title, so we just won't tell him, okay? Or maybe he'd realize I'm being cheeky and funny tonight and have a good laugh over what a dork I am. I just want to make sure he gets lots of face time on my blog so that all of my loyal readers go out and buy his CDs, go to his concerts, and all that-if they haven't already done so.

So today's Todd Agnew ministry moment...

In our small group, we did a worship time/prayer walk, which was awesome. And my beloved Jodi started us off with a Todd Agnew song. I was ashamed to say, that almost all of our group was like, "who is this?" We had to educate them. Of course it was from GLR, not ROS, which is the one I've been plugging. Note to self: make sure each Todd album gets equal plug time. The song we worshipped to was Romans 12:1, very appropriate. :) Also, as a side note, Jodi says to me, "You know, I've met Todd." I didn't get the whole story, but apparently it was before he ever recorded his first album. She thinks he's cool too. :) So really, that's all you need to know. I think he's cool. Jodi thinks he's cool. And if you know what's good for you, you'll think he's cool too. Oh, and our gang enjoyed worship time, so see, God used Todd to rock the house. Literally, but that's another story.

And then, I get home and am doing my stuff, and Heather decides she needs to chat. Which is fine, because my really cool anniversary gift idea for That Man was not working out right, so I'm going to plan B. I hate knowing that he got me a really cool gift, because anything I do is going to be so lame compared to him. But anyway...

As we were chatting, I said, you know, this reminds me of a Todd song. Actually, it's a Barlow Girl song. But Todd sings in it. So she looked it up, and she agrees. It's awesome. And it totally fits.

The song is Psalm 73 (My God's Enough)
I've had enough of living life for only me
And reaching just for the things that keep destroying me
So sick of envying the lives of so many I see
Somehow believing that they have what I need

My God's enough for me
This world has nothing I need
In this whole life I've seen
My God's enough, enough for me

I can't explain why I suffer though I live for You
Those who deny You they have it better than I do
Cover my eyes now so that my heart can finally see
That in the end only You mean anything

Who have I in heaven but You
Nothing I desire but You
My heart may fail but not You
You are mine forever

So yeah. Todd is the coolest. Every problem in life can be solved by a song he sings on. Probably because they're all somehow related to the Bible, so they are related to God and all that. So yeah. Not really Todd. He's just the messenger. But oh, he is a cool messenger to listen to. I could (and do) listen to that voice of his for hours.

LOL I can testify to the fact that she finds a Todd song for everything.

And this song was very right on for what we were talking about

Yes, but you also have to admit, the song always fits. I'm telling you... Todd is the best. If he weren't older than me by a couple of years and the wrong gender, I'd swear we were twins separated at birth.
