Quiet time this morning, listening to Big Krit – Rise and Shine and herd some connections in the first verse. I’ve been really examining what I listen to lately. Before I was a Christian music and HipHop was my religion. I honestly believe God was reaching out to me through the culture so I’ve been incorporating the music into my Bible study…
The first verse goes
Early morning, kinda sleepy, still yawning
Log on and, dial toning
Forever phoning, for a blessing
Will you help me get my ass up out the bed and go
God love me cause he said it so
Don’t look away cause I beg for more
Than I ever ever had
Praying for the future but I’m dealing with the past
Mama say I’m worried cause I’m too much like my dad
Some things are forever, nothing ever last
Like the rising of the sun or when big mama passed
Time travel fast, search and you shall find
Awake from yo slumber, open up yo blinds
Sounds like in the verse he (Krit) mentions “Forever phoning for a blessing” or always praying for a blessing or praying for change.
I’m one needy human being:
I need wisdom
I need guidance
I need insight
I need more faith
I could go on, and sometimes I attribute what I’ve experienced from other people to what will happen with God.
“Don’t look away because I beg for more than I’ve ever had”
The times I’ve overwhelmed a friend with what I needed to the point where they had to step away or vice-versa when I stepped away.
“Praying for the future but I’m dealing with the past, Mama say I’m worried cause I’m too much like my Dad”
The past has a negative influence on today’s faith and looking at what’s in front of me and what I know has me worried and feeling hopeless. As If what I see is all seeing and what I know is all knowing.
All ways that I felt before some guys opened up the word and showed me some scripture.
All in all…the first verse of this Krit song reminds me of
Jeremiah 29: 11-14
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord , “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord , “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”
