Well, I think this is easier than writing a journal with the whole losing paper and ripping it and stuff, and typing a blog will get my energy out and make me feel like I’m doing something productive. For some reason, writing gets boring and I can’t write as fast I type so I lose my train of thought long before it gets written down…
This is just to get me back into the habit of blogging, I guess, because I’m just typing random stuff.
Such as, I’m listening to Family Force 5’s song BZRK. FF5 was at WinterJam! I think they are better (and much more humorous) to watch live! It just gets you all excited and wanting to dance and know all the words but I don’t like how they aren’t real clear about God in the stuff I heard - not to say that they aren't close to God or anything. Jeremy Camp on the other hand was very out there, yet still personable, about how your relationship with Christ should be. I think all WinterJam artists should be trying to bring everyone to Christ more than they should be impressed with there own music. I know that’s probably a hard thing to do because it probably gets to you being in the spotlight all the time. I heard a song by Chris Sligh last night that went something like this -
“I've had just enough of the spotlight when it burns bright
To see how it gets in the blood
And I've tasted my share of the sweet life and the wild ride
And found a little is not quite enough
I know how I can stray
And how fast my heart could change”and I guess it made me understand more that even when worship artists are in the spotlight it doesn't make it easy for them to be about God because naturally they'd want the human praise as well as you and me would. He goes on in the rest of the song to talk about God emptying him of himself. That should be our prayer everyday! My prayer is that God will empty me of me so I can be filled with Him!
Anyway, I need to wrap this up because Mom is making something that smells delicious for dinner!
