Every song has a story behind it. Or at least, it should. And if this story is not pointing to the glory of our Savior, is it even worth hearing?
Music does not have to be complex if the lyrics are sound and true. Music should draw one in. Regardless of the spiritual content, people should have the ability to connect with one’s music simply because it is good.
We all have a deep longing. When something truly good is created, our initial reaction is to recognize the creator. Is this not reflective of the Lord Jesus Christ? Has He not given the desire to all to recognize, to meet the Creator of all things good? Jesus is drawing us to Himself constantly in ways that we may not even realize. He must certainly value us.
And He does not value us for our ability to glorify Him or speak eloquently about His love. Eloquence cannot be learned from literature, it must be practiced and improved as passion and understanding grow. As one walks with God, He shows up and the only natural reaction is to speak about that.
Let passion grow. Let the song tell the story.
her: are you a missionary?
her: (looks me up and down) have you ever been to Africa?
her: I guess you just haven’t made it there yet, huh?
Been keeping a secret since January.
Figured it was time to give my little photoblog a shout out.
Nothing special, just life.
Being able to tell a good story at the expense of someone else is not cute, Gus. I think the biggest problem is that I somehow think I am better than them. And that’s why I don’t share.
