CS Lewis said that the longer we walk with Christ the more that we become who we *really* are. We don't become mindless robots, zombies for Jesus. No, we come alive. We STOP performing and begin living.

Christ is a liberator, not inhibitor. He brings new life and draws out the beautiful creations that he has made us to be. We are incredible, gorgeous children of the Father and we get so loaded and tainted by our mortal, temporal longings. As we become disciples, we shed this frailty and what we truly are... we fade away in a sense, into life.


Performance has its limits
And I believe I reached them years ago
We lock inside and try to hide
the pain we believe that no one else could know
it’s all a trap
a terrifying lie from hell
and it can overcome your very core
like a storm that will not quell

So here we are again
Locked inside this sin of unbelief
We’re all desperate for a sweet sigh of relief
can we see your eyes
can we touch your robes
let us feel Your breathing
and know that you’re close

and… Fade away into the arms of the Savior
Fade away into the arms of Life

Piercing through the dark
The light that is not overcome
reaching through the night
the light that never fades

we’re dying for freedom
we’re desperate for freedom

all around me (all around me)
the liberating hands of the saints
all around me (all around me)
a love that cannot faint

(and we…) Fade away into the arms of the Savior
Fade away into the arms of Life

The Longing Selmer, Tennessee

The Longing is music by John and Yvonne Cullimore.

We seek to bring music that will connect with you both in sound and poetry, melding loops and beats with hammered dulcimer, 12-string guitar and layers of vocals and harmonies.

More importantly is that we enjoy our music, and can use them for worship and prayer. We certainly do hope and pray that you can do the same.
