““We’re all handmade people created by our God who is not safe or small.” Gareth Gilkeson, Rend Collective
I have recently reconnected with Bluegrass music. I love it’s earthy, authentic, eclectic blend of picks and wails. Bluegrass was borne out of the mountains of Appalachia with rich heritage in the countries of the UK.
With a high-brow spin, Yo-Yo Ma, world-class cellist, put together a bluegrass myopic record called The Goat Rodeo Sessions. :) Have a look and listen and come back for the tie in. (smiling–heart is warm) WARNING: you’ll want to keep listening!
Irish christian band, Rend Collective, hit the same kind of deep place with me in concert last night. The quote atop the blog is from the leader of the group, and I resonate with it. I loved their authenticity and intimacy with God and each other as they play. Just pure. Once more, listen in, and please come back…
The Tie In… wait for it…
Raw, energetic, organic, earthy, intimate, passionate, precise with unabashed wildness, basic and yet complex are these two tunes and artists.
Life with the Holy Spirit is all those things.
As I tune in more to the rhythm of the Holy Spirit, catch his wild, intimate, complex and energetic wooings and unctions, I am more and more able to allow Him free reign in my life concerning decisions and dreams. Real life is much more adventurous and gutsy with Him in charge, and the turbulents of life are just minor bumps in the journey rather than life threatening storms.
Ahhhhh. One more time ahhhhh. It is so good to be living in tandem with our God who is not safe or small and enjoy every minute! This Incredible Journey to Me is being crafted by that ultimate raw, organic and wild bluegrass trio:
Father God, Jesus and Holy Spirit: The Ultimate Unsafe Trio
Enjoy Jesus Culture singing Come Away with Me. The lyrics are phenomenal:
Come away with me, come away.
It’s never too late, it’s never too late,
it’s not too late for you.
I have a plan for you, I have a plan.
It’s going to be wild,
it’s going to be great,
it’s going to be full of me
Open up your heart and let me in
Me tonight …
