Hope in the Knowing

Some of you have probably been kind of weirded out that lately, my posts have been song lyrics. I'm drifting towards my second love of music, and it seems to be pouring out of me lately. There are a lot of people in my life hurting right now, and it's humbling and enfuriating and saddening all at once. Experiences in my past are bubbling up at an alarming rate; it's amazing how far down we can push those things we wish least to deal with. So don't worry, I'm still a politigoddess and future savior of the world, I'm just dealing with some stuff in my prefered medium.

The song I'm now working on is (tentatively) titled "Hope in the Knowing," and it's based on something Don Chaffer said during his last show at Jammin' Java, January of 2001 (2000? I don't know, Steve would remember). There are very few distinct things I remember from the show, other than something Don's father said to him. He said, even without the redemption from sin, and even without the promise of Heaven, he would still have no choice but to cling to Jesus, because without that there is no hope for any of us. I remember being so amazed when he said that. How many people believe because they're scared of Hell? How many people believe because they're scared of their friends' opinions of themselves? And yet, there are still those humble few who believe in Jesus for Jesus' own sake, who rely not on the sentiment of every day miracles or the redemption of soul and body, but on the word of the very One who tells us He is that He is. The hope and peace from the knowledge of Jesus and the Father lie not in the Promise of what will be afterward, but in simply knowing them every day. So anyway, it's a work in progress, the fruit of which you may see some time this week.

Happy back to school after a really nice holiday break, everybody.
