Sara Groves

I never used to listen much to Sara Groves growing up. I started paying attention to her within the last couple years. It is so rare to come across a song-writer so profound in her writing, and in her life. Sara's lyrics rise above so much commercialized Christian pop that we hear on the radio. It's more than just being honest, it's being completely immersed in her songs. She has no difficulties being clever, or compelling, because everything she writes is so real.

I look at someone like Sara, and I think how beautifully her ministry through music go hand in hand with her missionary work in the poorest, or most abandoned places of the world. I feel like Sara is an exmample of what can happen when God reaches in and controls ALL parts of our life.

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive and inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." Colossians 3:23-24

Jesus wasn't just HOLY, he was an incredibly brilliant TEACHER. Following in his footsteps (though counter-culture), leads to LIFE. Not just eternal life, but life abundant here on earth. When you are tempted, or feel discouraged, choose the higher road. Choose Jesus. His way works. He created you.
