I recently heard Lindsey Sterling and SWITCHFOOT’s collaboration, which they came out with long that long ago. There’s a link right below for you to check it out. 🙂
I wanted to write a little bit about this song and just get my thoughts out to y’all, on this.
First off, I am definitely a fan of Lindsey Sterling, as well as SWITCHFOOT. I encourage y’all to check each out. If you like violin, you’ll love Lindsey Sterling. If you’re more into Christian Hip-Hop, then you’ll definitely like SWITCHFOOT. Either way, check them both out and hopefully you’ll like one of them. 🙂
Now onto this post…
I think that we definitely have a problem in our culture with tearing each other down, rather than building each other up. So many of us are insecure, and we find security in showing the wrongs which exist in others. Problem is, that doesn’t make us look any better; it actually makes us look worse!
Yet, we continue to tear each other down. We, as a people, seem to take pleasure in hurting others with our words. This is completely wrong and there’s no reason why it should continue. Words are extremely important. Without words, Life would be so bleak and meaningless.
Even though we have the gift of Words, though, we still make Life seem bleak and meaningless to some. Why? Why do we have to be so hateful and cruel to our fellow humans? Why not use our words to bring Hope and Joy to those around us?
We often don’t know how much of an impact our words make, until it’s too late.
Sometimes, we need to shut out the voices around us that are screaming hateful words at us. We need to surround ourselves with the words of Jesus. The words that say, “I love you. You are worth something; I died for YOU. I’ll always be with you, even to the end.”
We need to shut out the voices of the culture, and listen to the voice of Jesus. His words are Holy and Pure. They are full of Joy and Hope.
All the while, we need to make sure that we are speaking words of Joy, Hope and Life, to those around us. We need to speak the words of Jesus to others; He should pour out of you, so much so, that it’s obvious to anyone that you’re a follower of Jesus Christ. I don’t want you to say you’re going to say nice words; I want you to put it into action.
That’s y’alls’ challenge for the week. Don’t leave me hangin’ – get brave and accept my challenge. After all, I’m going to be doing this right alongside you. 😉
