There is only one truth, one way to the Father, and it is not virginity, it is not a six-day creation, and it is definitely not anti-immigration laws.
Who are we to tell the Man Himself, the Holy One, the Creator of the Earth and everything living on it, that He messed up when He created us?
Truth be told, I became comfortable with God. He was the guy who was watching over me. He was the friend I had. He was the awesome dude who gave me stuff and loved me, this I know. Now I’m not saying that these are inaccuracies. Each premise (and yes, each is a song that was in my childhood) has scripture to back it up. But, the truth is, that’s not enough. God is these things, but He is also so much more.
I’ve never felt the call to preach from the stage, or use my music as a tool for ministry. I truly believe that if we have faith in God, that our lives should be our ministry. As someone who holds that view, I’ve often examined my life as a musician and felt that I was lacking in certain ways, that I wasn’t being enough of a light in a dark world.
I’ve thought about the phrase and what it means to not be in want, the first response was in getting past the stereotypical American “First World” mind set. I honestly think the weight of this goes deeper than just the materialistic desires.
"The question on my mind is that if I am a child of God, why is it that I feel so alone sometimes? Or if I really have the Spirit of God with me, why is it that I feel so broken more times than not?"
