The Future & Free Will
The most amazing thing about life is our lack of control. I'm learning about engaging with the lack of control, and bonding with God in believing that my weakness and my lack of control is all taken care of and basically shielded by His full and total control. I'm finishing music, and trying to find the line between my free will and His plan. In doing this, I'm learning to be comfortable discussing certain themes in my music. I believe in writing about love and relationships. I believe in telling the truth through music, and using your gifts to speak, but I also believe in being respectful to the author. I was created with a gift that I was created to use. I know that free will allows me to create the type of music that I feel in the moment, but God's power and gifts that speak to me allow me to create the type of music that moves me. I don't know if I know what type of music that God is ok with me writing. I'm not sure if God is ok with the music of my peers. I know that music should be full of talent and speaking about life and real situations. Life is messy at times. I don't believe that we should create disgustingness in our music that hasn't been reflected in life. It's all about being honest. I believe that I have free will, but I believe that God's hand controls and guides my thoughts and actions. I know that if I obey, I will not regret, and I know that if I don't, I will not forget.
"We acknowledge but one motive - to follow the truth as we know it, whithersoever it may lead us; but in our heart of hearts we are well assured that the truth which has made us free, will in the end make us glad also."
