The command “Be ye perfect” is not idealistic gas. Nor is it a command to do the impossible. He is going to make us into creatures that can obey that command. He said (in the Bible) that we were ‘gods’ and He is going to make good His words. If we let Him-for we can prevent Him, if we choose-He will make the feeblest and filthiest of us into a god or goddess, a dazzling, radiant, immortal creature, pulsating all through with such energy and joy and wisdom and love as we cannot now imagine, a bright stainless mirror which reflects back to God perfectly (though, of course, on a smaller scale) His own boundless power and delight and goodness. The process will be long and in parts very painful, but that is what we are in for. Nothing less. He meant what He said. (C.S. Lewis, “Mere Christianity” pg. 206)

I really tried in all earnest to sit down and put a post together before Christmas, or on Christmas, but I had a busy weekend between working nights, volunteering and attending Church, and spending time with my family on Christmas morning. Working Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night and only taking naps in between shifts gave me no time to sit down on this computer.
So here we are now, shifting our focus for the next few days on reflecting over the past year. I will be sharing my top 5 tracks from 2022. If you want a wonderful review of the top stories of this year, I invite you to click the image below and watch the fun, but important, end-of-the-year recap from my friends at the Holy Post.

We had a rough night trying to keep her asleep, so I was not able to put this together before all the family was up and demanding my attention. Here is my song for #5, coming from Hillsong United’s amazing album release for 2022: Are We There Yet?
