"Empty Me" is an original hymn written during a time of deep personal struggle, soul-searching, and ultimately surrender to God. The words and music came to me on a late summer afternoon in 2014 after I had just spent several hours wandering through a local cemetery praying, thinking, and wrestling with God about the trajectory of my life. I'm sure that the lyrics were also influenced by a recent reading of A.W. Tozer's classic book "The Knowledge of the Holy." The musical style reflects a desire I had at the time to create something with a folksy, melancholy yet soulful vibe. I pray that you are blessed, encouraged, and challenged as you listen and reflect on the preciousness of your life and that day when you will stand face-to-face before our Good and Holy Creator.
