When you’ve been alive for 56 years, you learn a lot. Mostly from the things that went wrong than from things that went right. I have learned more from my failures than my successes. Don’t get me wrong, there are lessons to be had on both sides of the coin, but it seems like the failure lessons just hit you harder and produce the deepest change. At least that’s been my experience.
It’s been said, music is the universal language. I don’t know who coined the phrase, but it appears to carry a lot of truth! Artists can travel around the world singing to those who don’t speak their language and still be just as powerful as they are in their native land. Why? Because song has power!
“My God’s not dead, He’s surely alive. He’s living on the inside roaring like a lion.”
This was a song written by Daniel Bashta made popular by David Crowder Band and Newsboys. A song of revival and spiritual revolution.
When I think about all the revolutions in the earth and our country, they started with a voice! A declaration of sorts.
I have always been astounded at what is important to God. That’s why I hate religion! And I believe that’s why Jesus hated religion too. It was because of how unlike God religion was in Jesus’ day. Always has been and still is today!
At various times, I have walked among the homeless in our great city. Well, really, we all have. Some occasions I have touched them, hugged them, fed them, talked & prayed with them and watched them as they live and move around us and as they sleep. Compelled to do something to change the situation they are in. Angry because SOMETHING should be done. But, I am learning and my observation is this: They are not have nots, they are want nots.
