Someone (many “someones” actually) said a Christian shouldn’t be singing or playing blues. After all, Christians have a “hope and a future” and knowing that should preclude us from singing or playing that genre of music, right? Count me as one that doesn’t follow that logic. Christians have the same emotional ups and downs as anyone. We experience the same pain, the same hurts, the same sicknesses and the same everything else good and no-so-good. Pain is your beginning. It’s the beginning of a journey that will take you to the other side. Brenda speaks about this very topic in her latest Note To Self Video that you can watch HERE.
Yes, we have a hope and a future. And we have the blues. Both help me reach the other side.
