Obscure Music Spotlight

Don't know if any of ya'll have heard of this new band I think I've just discovered.
They're called The National and they're pretty good at playing music.
They were on Letterman recently and I just saw the video and it may have blown me away a bit.
Check it out.
The National - Afraid of Everyone

Boy was I wrong.

"Got to read some Romans and then pass out for the night. I'm excited, Romans is sooooo good."
That was me like an hour and a half ago. Boy was I wrong. On the first part of course. Read some Romans and then more Romans, and then finished some Romans. On the second part, Romans is still 'sooooo good'. Some people base their entire lives off of things that were said in Romans. Paul is for sure a soldier. A lot can be learned from soldier Paul and his words.
All this Romans (and a little Francis Chan following that) got me to thinking about how easy it is to be lukewarm when everything is going poorly and you have to rely on Him to make it through the day. I need constant reminders that He is all that ever really matters. His love for me is so huge that it is unfathomable. I can't wrap my puny little brain around it. That's how it needs to be though. What is the point of even having an all powerful being if the workings are easy to understand? What is the point if the workings are even possible for us to understand?
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well!"
Psalm 139: 14
On a slightly different subject, my fears are unfounded. Thanks for the reassurance. Even if there was reason to be fearful, there is no reason. Everything is going to work itself out as long as I trust in the Lord. How easily I forget that. It is nice to know that I can remember though.
Small note about these posts. They are mostly word vomit with very little proofreading or planning. I try to make sure that most of the words I am saying are words but that's the extent of it. Hopefully this helps somebody, maybe.


I want to try and get better and not being so sporadic and keep on track with things I've said I want and need to do. Time to get my head on straight and put in some solid work. I am happy with my friendships right now. Love my roommates and close friends, and I'm really starting to enjoy spending time with the four oaks friends that I have made. I am missing one of my best friends though. Wish we could talk.

There's a little bit of everything in this post. Bad, Good, Bad.

Got to read some Romans and then pass out for the night. I'm excited, Romans is sooooo good.
