In March, I will be working with a musician named John Waller at an event called Called2Ministry in Chattanooga, TN. I’ve been a fan of John’s for quite a few years and I am excited to do this conference and meet him. I was checking out his video for the song As for Me and My House and I noticed a video at the bottom of the page with the story behind the song. As I watched that video, I realized that while our roads have been different, we have something in common. There came a time in both our lives when our work became an idol. So as we look at the end of the year and our hopes and dreams for 2012, it might be wise to check yourself. Here John and his wife Josee tell the story. Please take the time to listen. It will be worth your time.
Here is the song born out of the story, As for Me and My House
Lastly, here is one more song from John, called Because God is Good. At the end of the video he shares a little more about this concept. The basic idea is “my life didn’t work out the way I thought it would because God is good. I, Dave Weiss, can claim that as my testimony as well. How about you?
As we approach the new year, check yourself. Is there something you need to leave behind. Take it to the cross and leave it there.
