Sorry for no recent posting.. my Dad’s fault, or.. er– something like that.
Topic 1: DMX & Johnny Cash.
I like the rapper DMX (real name: Earl Simmons). He’s Christian, but has some battles in his life. He’s been cruel to animals, has drug problems, and is fighting hard to become a better person, and Christian.
Lord Give me a Sign!
I really need to talk to you Lord
Since the last time we talked the walk has been hard
Now I know you haven’t left me
But I feel like I’m alone
Im a big boy now but I’m still not grown
And I’m still goin through it
Pain and the hurt
Soaking up trouble like rain in the dirt
And I know!
Only I can stop the rain
Wit’ just the mention of my Savior’s name
IN THE NAME OF JESUS!
I do feel sorry for him, and hope he does well in his struggles– he’s not one of those who say sorry and go right back to what they were doing before.
Speaking of troubled singers, DMX is like Johnny Cash, who also had drug and other problems, but he said sorry to God over and over, and got over his problems. His music is full of spiritual themes, and in the end he lived a good life. He was 71 when he died, not long after he recorded this version of “Hurt”, by the Nine Inch Nails.
The other of his songs that shows his Christian side is his song ‘When The Man Comes Around‘:
My Dad gave me this quote: “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” That’s by Plato the Philosopher. DMX and Johnny Cash show us how to get through our battles and troubles: keep on keeping on.
Teh Other Stuffs
Here’s Steeb’s rapper of the week: Method Man! I like him because of the style of rap he does, and the lyrics are good.. even if teh music videos are strange.
And for your LEGO Of The Week, I found this for a late Valentine’s Day picture, for Steeb to you:
