My heart goes out

Yes, my pastor and friend, the lovely and talented Jeff Hogan pretty much oozes creativity. We brainstormed the concept for this video a few years back. It was filmed at a local bagel shop owned by members of our church and starring the youth group, one of the youth sponsors (the pretty lady sitting in the corner), and Jason – smart Alec and drummer extraordinaire.

How often do we miss opportunities? Not necessarily to witness with a blanket “If you die tomorrow, do you know where you’re going?”, or some stupid, obnoxious tract used in lieu of actually having to speak to someone. I mean, how often do we miss the chance to just share the joy and peace that enters our lives when we surrender to Jesus? If you’re like me, not often enough…

My Heart Goes Out (Warren Barfield)
She sat a table away
Staring into space in her own little world
And I saw a tear in her eye
Like a window to the mind of a frightened little girl

She never said a word
But I know I clearly heard
A cry for help
And I wanted to answer
I wanted to tell her

My heart goes out to you
You don’t even know me
You don’t even know
Oh, my heart goes out to you
And I don’t know what else to do
To reach you now, my heart goes out

But I’m still glued to my chair
She’s unaware, there’s little time
And though my intentions are good
If I’m misunderstood, the price could be high

I can’t fix whatever’s wrong
But if I fail to pass along
Someone cares
Price couldn’t be greater
And this can’t wait till later

My heart goes out to you
You don’t even know me
You don’t even know
And my heart goes out to you
And I don’t know what else to do
To reach you now, my heart goes out, yeah

For God has loved the world so much
He send His only son from heaven to earth
Well, there’s a distance love covered
She’s just a table over
All she needs is a shoulder

My heart goes out to you
You don’t even know me
You don’t even know
Oh, my heart goes out
Lord, help me do what I can do
To reach her, to reach her

Oh, my heart goes out to you
You don’t even know me
You don’t even know
Oh, my heart goes out to you
Let me do what I can do to reach you now
My heart goes out, yeah
