One of my most recently found discoveries is Adele. She is celebrating her 22nd birthday today and is already a successful recording artist. Adele has categorized her musical style as “heartbroken soul” which is a perfect description. She has this kind of Macy Gray raspy sound that I love and her lyrics (self written) are profoundly mature. Early this morning, I was listening to “Chasing Pavements” and it struck a chord with me.
Should I give up, or should I just keep chasing pavements? Even if it leads nowhere, or would it be a waste? Even if I knew my place, should I leave it there?
I suppose the reason it resonated this morning was because I had read a bible verse earlier that reminded me that God will supply me with all I need. Given free will, it’s a fine line we are faced with when deciding whether we’re chasing pavements that lead nowhere or whether we’re living according to His plan for us.
I don’t know if I’m the only one that struggles with this dilemna; this near contradiction between my faith and my reasoning. I’ve been working diligently to align my faith and my reasoning ~ to be able to answer my own doubts and questions based on the Word and the free will He has graciously given me.
Song lyrics ~ love them. Love the deep thought that creates words in a song that just makes you pause. Just gives you something to think about…
