Driven to our Knees

Listened to a new song by Matt Kearney today called Closer to love.

One line stuck in my brain.

"I guess we are all one phone call away from our knees."

I know its not the context of what is a great song but this statement bothered me. Asking myself why it rankled? I came up with the reluctant answer: Sometimes the only time we get on our knees is when we get that phone call.

We sometimes use the phrase "Driven to my knees" suggesting it is something that we have been forced into involuntary. I have to pray rather than I get to talk to God. Yes thats right I GET to talk to God.

Why does it take a crisis to call me closer to love when it is always there?
