I have devoted my life (basically) to spoken word. Not just any spoken word poetry, but live performances that are full of passion for Christ. Each one brings inspiration and goosebumps, and each poet has a unique message and testimony of their faith. My favorite one so far is called Identity Crisis of a Misfit, and it is talking about how, as Christians we become so focused on our image and on how we appear to others that we disregard how God sees us, which is ultimately way more important. One line in his poem is "I would rather be an outcast now then cast out later." My life should be reflecting God's work in my life, and if that makes me not fit in then so be it. I would like God to welcome me into heaven rather than live halfway in between and be unrecognizable to God.
At the very beginning of his poem, he says "I began with media, because media begins with ME." I made the obvious connection to the fast and I began to see the real truth in that. Media is designed to show your best you, and in promoting yourself, your attention remains fixed on yourself instead of on God. This spoken word poem has resonated deeply with me and I would suggest it to all of you ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubhEudCSJHA )
Happy Media Fast!!!
