It always amazes me when I hear someone who was involved in Christian music “bag” on the scene. I’ve yet to hear someone who experiences success in it so passionately criticize it. It’s always those who have tried and failed. According to them, it’s always someone else’s fault. But when things go right, it’s because of you? Taking credit for the positive and blaming others for the negative is a victim mentality.
Stop throwing rocks at the parade you want to be in!
Take some responsibility!
I think of a time in the late 99 & early 2000′s when I was searching for a solo deal. I would get so close and then door would shut. Looking back now, my heart wasn’t right. My motives were selfish. I was a poor example of a Christ-follower and was living off the fumes of Grace. Should I become bitter and blame God? No! I should thank Him for not allowing me a bigger public position at the time. I was a mess. I needed to deal with “me”.
Christian music is not perfect. It’s like anything else. People doing their best to play music and spread hope. Flawed humans jack things up…no matter where they are at! :-) But, I am grateful to those who get in a van/bus/plane every week to encourage other believers and to have an opportunity to be used by the Spirit. Galatians 6:9 ya’ know…
