So what did you think? Did you love that or what?
I confess to you that while I have heard of Kirk Franklin, I have never listened to his music, nor would I have known who he was had I seen him on TV or elsewhere. However, yesterday I was catching up on my recordings of Life Today with James and Betty Robison. For you Beth Moore fans, every Wednesday on Life Today is “Wednesdays with Beth.” Click on this link to view online the previously televised teaching series taught by Beth on Life Today (but not until after you have finished reading this post :->).
So I was watching last Wednesday’s episode of Beth’s teaching, and she mentioned this song. She was talking about how she has recently been in a season of sadness and grief. Apparently, she loves her some Kirk Franklin. She was preparing to speak not too long ago and while listening to Kirk Franklin, he asked the question in his song, “Do you want a revolution?” Beth said it was like she heard the words for the first time, and she turned to the speakers on her iPod and said, “Yes!”
This really resonated with me. I went and found the video on GodTube hoping to not only listen to the song but to include it in a post. The truth is, I want a revolution, too.
I have been in a dry season of late. I feel disconnected. It’s like my whole world is in total chaos. Life doesn’t stop because I’m feeling this way. There’s still laundry to do, errands to run, groceries to buy, meals to prepare, appointments to keep, etc., etc., etc.
The truth is, I’m tired. I don’t like feeling this way. I think there are a number of factors at work here, and I will talk more about some of that tomorrow.
Do I want a revolution? Yes! Do I know who can give me one? Yes! How about you?
