I have a dream to write songs, even just one song would make me really, really happy. There's probably only about two people in the world who know that about me, but now I guess there will be about twenty of you that know. I don't know why I'm incapable of coming up with a simple song, but I get a total mental block whenever I've attempted it. It's very frustrating.
I think of all the millions of music artists who sit down and write music all the time. I'm musical. I'm talented. But the words and music just don't come. So I just have to listen to everyone else's music until God gives me a song.
Speaking of everyone else's music... have you all heard Kari Jobe? I think I've seen her name out there, but I'm not real "up" on all the new music these days. Well, let me tell you what. She's great. I discovered her the other day, and I am totally lovin' her. Don't get me wrong. No way am I ditching my pretend BFF Sara Groves by any means, but this girl Kari has got a beautiful voice. I'm thinking if God doesn't give me a song of my own, it will be okay. I'll just keep singing Sara's and Kari's songs.
If you're unfamiliar with her, you can check out this video I found. The picture quality isn't great because somebody recorded off of a big screen, but it's really the song I am going for here. Take a listen, if you like.
You Are For Me
Okay, just one more thing. Could you all do me a favor, and come back tomorrow? I have a special post going up for ohamanda's Top Ten Tuesday that's super important to me. I'll see you then, bright and early Tuesday morning.
