If you’re shining light into dark places, keep on keeping on. If you’re taking a right stand, even though people might accuse you of all sorts of bigotry and other buzzwords for doing so, keep on keeping on.
Let their criticism roll off you, and stand firm.
Correcting error matters, pandering to wickedness & delusion helps it fester like a sore.
I am inspired more & more these days by the deep thinkers & visionaries of the world. Those who, when they are told they can’t achieve something great, they work & fight for it that much harder. I am inspired by the artistic, and even sometimes the eccentric, the nerds, the oddballs.
I am fairly reasonably educated, but I think had I grown up w/more of these types in my circle, my life would have turned out majorly different. I would have been MORE driven than I already am, I would have had a DEEPER curiosity, I would have shot for higher goals than I’ve probably even fathomed presently.
“Sometimes you write the songs, sometimes the songs write you”-Guy Charles Clark
Reading the above quote, I take it to mean that a song can be life changing, that it can influence you profoundly, and from personal experience I can attest to the truth of that. One of the reasons I’m enamored with music is because of the wide range of things it can do.
It can inspire, it can uplift when someone is down, it can even be educational. I think music is one of the greatest things we’ve ever been blessed with, which is not to say we should make an idol out of it, of course, but I am thankful for it.
