Past month or so has been rough.
If there wasn’t a group named Prayer Rangers at at least one of your church retreats, you’re a liar.
This was just a recent, short reflection that I had the other week.
Last week, I posted a short poem with lyrics from Chris Tomlin’s “Come Home Running” in the caption. A friend messaged me and told me that that song was their “life song.”
Starfield’s “Unashamed” has been one of my personal OG favorite praise songs, and has always felt like my “life song.” It’s felt like the anthem of my life, if you will, for a long time now. But, I’ve definitely grown a bit jaded to it, especially as my list of favorite praise songs has grown.
I thought back to why I loved the song so much, and why it immediately became so near and dear to me.
In the past couple of days, I’ve been thinking about arrogance and humility. I was ranting to someone about how I can’t stand people with baseless arrogance. If you’re arrogant but have the talent or whatever to back it, fine. Still crazy annoying, but at least you can put your money where your mouth is. But people who are all talk with no actual abilities? Ugh.
I’m currently reading through John Piper’s Don’t Waste Your Life. I’ve been meaning to start it for a few weeks now, after finishing One Thousand Wells (still highly recommend; will lend you my copy). But, for reasons xyz, I didn’t start it until this week.
But, once again, God shows me that everything is timed perfectly. There were a lot of pieces in the first couple chapters that resonated strongly with me.
Oh boy. I already know this post is probably going to be all over the place, because I’m just going to be throwing out different thoughts I’ve had in the past two weeks. I shall do my best to make this as readable as possible, but that probably won’t work out too well.
Oh, it’s also probably going to be ridiculously long. (Yep. Definitely ended up ridiculously long.)
