So today I have realized something that I do alot.
I know this seems really sill or even stupid. Yes, it’s obvious too. I could elaborate so much more on this topic, but I’m not. At least not today.
With this in mind, I want to reflect on the many great opportunities I have screwed up in the recent years. Friendships, relationships, myself, God, as a Christian, as a friend. I have screwed up, fallen short, and let down in all these areas. I hate myself for this bad habit of failure and shortcomings. Yes, God’s strength is made perfect in my weakness, but I can’t help but dwell on my stupidity and inconsideration/selfishness on days like these.
I just wanted to reflect on the failure and broken state I am in right now. Hopefully I’ll learn from my idiocy and screw-ups more in the upcoming future.
God help me.
So, I recently just bought The Brilliance’s new self-titled album. If any of you know who Michael Gungor is, then you will appreciate this band because it’s his brother. With similar yet different sounds, The Brilliance approaches creative worship in a different manner than Gungor does.
Both are creative.
Both are different.
Both are anointed worshippers with a desire to push the envelope of being as creative and intimate as possible with their worship. Take a listen to the song, Mercy, from that album. Now it isn’t the best or most epic song of this style, but it is still powerful.
It is this simplicity and refusal to go with too huge of a crescendo that makes the song so unique. Close your eyes. And soak it in.
Well go buy it on iTunes first. Because it wouldn’t let me post the song.
