Our God Alone Can ‘Cause He Mixes It With Love and Makes the World Taste Good

I periodically have the privilege and enjoyment of playing bass on the music team at Church and not too long ago the set included this song:


[Lyrics for the song are found HERE]

Since that time, my brain has done good and proper to forever associate that song with this one:

If this ruins it for any of you as well, consider it a brilliant (catch the word play there?) gift from me to you.

Welcome to just a hint of how I envisage reality and all its bits.

Welcome to my madness

Let It Be: or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Party

Why do I believe what I believe?

Funny looking back on the question of “how I got from a place of suffering to here,” it feels like I still oscillate between “there” and “here,” between being “in control” and without it, between feeling shamed and feeling loved, between crying out “Not my will but yours be done God,” and “My GOD My God, why have you forsaken me?!”

Between feeling like Aldonza, and feeling like Dulcinea.

I’m planning on writing a new blog post, but for now, in case you haven’t looked it up from my Facebook Wall, here’s my message/my story at my church this past weekend.

Let it Be, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Party .

And in case you wanna know about the church, you can visit its website here: The Sanctuary Downtown

So. Let it be.

->and the world will be better for this…
