Every Friday night I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference from either 10, 20, or 30 years ago (rotating each week). Here it is – for the week ending Sunday June 01ST 2008:
- Addicted – P.O.D.
- Fading Away – Demon Hunter
- Last Regret – Seventh Day Slumber
- Anything You Say – Deas Vail
- This Is Home – Switchfoot
I can’t believe that was a full decade ago this weekend. I remember hearing those songs on the radio at the time in heavy rotation, and cranking them up at home and in my car, and rockin’ out to them. I was on the verge of 41 years old, but I was still a kid on this fantastic journey – just a little over 21 months after the start of salvation. I was still in such a euphoric state for Christ.
I would eventually come out of that euphoria. There’s about a 3 to 5 year stretch of my fantastic journey where I was still moving forward towards Christ, but it was at a much slower and insignificant pace. I never quite fell into the ditches of darkness along both sides of the winding and curving journey, but I came close, and I was certainly more vulnerable to do so than I was in the beginning. You never want to get comfortable on this journey (like I did) – because when you do the enemy and his followers of the world will strike with a vengeance.
A little over 3 years ago I made drastic changes in my daily spiritual life. I had to close some doors so that God could lead me to some open doors that were waiting for me with new opportunities. I’m enjoying a renaissance now, and I’m back to moving forward at a steady march towards God with a definite purpose.
This blog – established in 2007 – began fading away in 2010 – just as my fantastic journey was losing steam. It completely ceased and went dormant in 2012. I resurrected it at the start of this year. It’s now the cornerstone of my online ministry to win souls for Christ. If you’re reading this – then you’re part of my online church family. You are a brother or a sister in Christ. Let’s walk together. Let’s expand God’s Kingdom together.
If you’re not yet a believer and a follower of Christ – then that’s OK. Walk with me. Read my blogs when I post them. I’d like to share with you what I know to be The Truth. I’d like to share some Good News with you.
I’ll be back on Sunday with Scripture, and then on Monday it’s my brand new Top 10 music chart.
Enjoy this weekend my brothers and sisters. Be safe. Have fun. Love all. Live life.
