Originally I wanted to do a fun Christmas cover, because I just recently uploaded a more "serious" cover. However, every time I would sit down to record said-video, something would go wrong. I wasn't feeling it, and I didn't want to upload something my heart wasn't really in. I didn't want to post something just for the sake of needing to post content. So I was struggling for a while, literally nothing was going right and I was so frustrated. I thought "what the heck am I doing wrong?" Then this song popped in my head. This is a song we're introducing at church tomorrow morning, so I figured that was probably why it was in my head. Then I thought, "well let's just see how it sounds." So I recorded the base, and the rest followed. The FIRST TIME. Everything fell into place. God placed this song on my heart this Christmas season. It's a powerful one, and a necessary-listen. For whatever reason, He wanted to speak through this song to someone. I tried to the best of my abilities to allow Him to speak through me. The reason this blog is up so late, is because I was struggling with something I was trying to force. I wanted this "blogmas" song to be fun and the first one didn't work out because God wanted something else. Blogmas is a fun way to spread Christmas cheer, however it's times like these when God tells us to "check yo self" and we have no choice but to listen. Because when it comes down to it, this season isn't about anything other than Jesus. It's so refreshing to be given a reality check from God, even in the littlest, seemingly "carefree" moments.
So, kick back, throw some headphones on (trust me it's better that way), and I hope you enjoy.
