I enjoyed watching Muse on the Grammy’s this week. I like that style of music. It took me back to my college days when a band from Dublin named U2 took the world by storm. And overran my life, giving me music that resonated in tune with my life and faith in Christ. I remember playing the cassette of U2 “Under a Blood Red Sky” over and over until I had to buy a new one. The album was from a concert live at Red Rocks. The remastered DVD is a must-have purchase, the original concert cited by Rolling Stones as one of the top 50 moments that changed rock music.
This week, for my morning readings, Psalm 40 has been the Psalm for the week in my devotional book, A Guide to Prayer (I highly recommend this book to those who are looking for something to aid their spiritual life!). And, it’s funny because I think the first three verses are what God intends for me to learn this year. And waiting patiently has not been a part of my DNA.
