Have yet to find a philosophical somewhere I am content to call home. The closest I get to a creed these days is a quote by John Green. "Whether I believe in God isn’t really relevant. I do believe however tenuously in Mercy" Due to a lot of personal reasons encountered along this journey, I have mostly stepped away from writing for now. Still, sometimes something stirs me and I need space to hash out my thoughts. So welcome to my little space along the journey.

As I was driving to work this morning the words to this song "Save Me" Lyrics - Dave Matthews Band caught my attention. It seems quite strange for Dave Mathews (a man who usually sings about drugs or sex) to be addressing spiritual issues. I think that the final bridge illustrates Dave is an "opium of the masses" type, however I feel from the second verse that he does not want to be. This song struck me, that many of those around us who discount the Bible and the word of God do so at a defiance to themselves and to what they want to believe. We as Christians need to live lives that are more authentically and more passionately affected by grace so that those who are searching for a reason to believe will find the reason in the manifestation of our lives.
