I was listening to the song "Can't Take Away" by Mikeschair on the blog playlist and came across Job in my Bible during it. It totally has to do with Job in a way because it says:
"You can take away everything that I've been holding, you can take away the sun, you can take away the very air that I've been breathing, but you can't take away MY GOD."
Just as for Job, his health went downhill, his kids died, everything went down for him... No kidding, he was depressed. But he remained faithful in the LORD and received twice as many of pretty much everything. He had seven kids before--- so that's a lot. And that totally goes with the song: "You can't take away MY GOD!"
I started a Bible challenge lately during camp after I found a few verses I liked, so here's my Psalm for today:
Help, LORD, for the godly are no more; the faithful have vanished from among men. Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception. May the LORD cut off all flattering lips and every boastful toungue that says "We will triumph with our tongues; we own our lips--- who is our master?"
"Because of the oppression of the weak and the groaning of the needy, I will now arise," says the LORD. "I will protect them from those who malign them." And the words of the LORD are <3flawless=D like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times.
The verse(s) is (are) saying that even though everywhere you turn there is non-Christian acting people, trust me, Ke$ha is the perfect example of a person who not only probably isn't a Christian, but shows ungodlieness to EVERYONE. Everywhere you turn, someone doesn't believe in God or has a separate religion. (and Christianity is NOT a religion! Well, it's a religion but not a religion!) Everything has become horrible nowadays, and everyone thinks that they are in charge of themselves, but they're not. God's in charge. God is flawless and nothing is more perfect than Him, and HE owns our everything. That new DSi you got? That snazzy new car? The newest lipgloss? Your $40 purse? You may own that, but God owns YOU.
Check out the next Bible challenge, and see how Tenth Avenue North's song "Hold My Heart" almost matches Psalm 13!
