Be Somebody

Every now and then I hear a song that makes me stop. I don't have much of a choice. It could be the music, the lyrics, the vocals. With Be Somebody, it was all three. What Thousand Foot Krutch did with this song is amazing to say the least.

Look at these lyrics -

After all the lights go down
I'm just the words, you are the sound
A strange type of chemistry
how you become a part of me
and when I sit alone at night
your thoughts go through me like a fire
your the only one who knows
who I really am

We go through life wearing masks. Pretending to be all together, good Christians. When if people could see the truth, we struggle. There are still temptations, trials, heartaches and at the end of the day hiding it is pointless. God can see it.
The chorus then goes on to say that we all want to be somebody, so we invent that person. Instead of working toward it, we create it. God wants us to be real not only with each other, but with him too.
And when we become more real, our faith will start to show. More then it did when we were just "acting."
This song is really ministering to me. I hope you enjoy as well.

Group Therapy Thursday, February 16th

Tonight on Group Therapy Thursday we were helping out Matthew. He wants to go to college come September, but his girl friend has other plans. She's said it's either college or her. What should Matthew do?

Valentine's Day

I've never been a fan. It seems wrong on a lot of levels. Do we only show we love someone on one day of the year? Can't we everyday? Do we have to get chocolates?
It seems to me to be what most people complain about with Christmas. Over commercialization.

That... and it's all based on a rather grizzly death.

Or, maybe I'm just acting like this guy...

Either way.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Alex Kendrick - I Am Second

I know I'm slightly late on this one (The Courageous Movie Tour ended last week). But I had a cold so what can you do!
The history of film maker Alex Kendrick (Fireproof, Courageous). It's long, but worth a listen.
