Over at my Crazy Delicious blog, I've gone through chapter 4 of Francis Chan's book Crazy Love (which I'm pretty sure at least a couple of you have read thanks to Mr. John Acuff). Anyways, while writing, I fell upon this song that fit perfectly with what I was saying and really touched me. The song is called "The Motions" by Matthew West.
Matthew West is an extraordinary Christian artist who has overcome a lot to continue doing what he loves. In 2007, doctors discovered a vascular polyp and hemorrhaged blood vessels in his vocal chords. West had to get surgery and then had to be silent for two whole months (Can you imagine not talking for two months? That would be crazy!). During those two months, West focused on God and God in turn renewed Matthew's purpose.
West made a full recovery and came out with a new album titled Something to Say which includes "The Motions" as well as a bunch of other excellent tracks that I highly suggest you check out. Here is a sweet video I found on YouTube that you should check out to get a taste of what I'm talking about:
And as a side note, I am starting to get my schedule set so I will slowly be returning to the craziness that is the blog world and especially this crazy blog. I see that I have missed a lot and I'm looking forward to jumping back in (and hopefully you are too)!
Have an excellent day and praise God!
