Carlos Whittaker posted something great yesterday over @ RagamuffinSoul.
He was filming a video for his new album which comes out next January (and I am very excited for by the way) when Danny, a man who is homeless in Atlanta, came up and started to join in worshipping God:
Listen really carefully to their conversation at the end or read it on Carlos’ blog.
“He places some of us in that valley” – that’s what Danny said.
The valley, though we’d much rather be up the mountain, is a very important, powerful place.
I haven’t been in the valley for quite some time and I’ve done everything I can this semester to avoid it. At. All. Costs. God’s been shouting me down but I’ve been clambering to stay at the top. It’s kind of lonely up here if I’m being honest.
As Carlos sings:
Save us from these comforts.
Break us of our need for the familiar
Spare us any joy that’s not of You
And we will worship You
