Pray by Sam Smith

Anyone familiar with the English singer/song-writer, Sam Smith and his latest song, Pray?

It is a song that I play at least 8 times a day.  Usually back to back.

I love how he goes from a deep tenor tone to a high falsetto (his voice is magical) as what appears to be a choir joining him in the background.  That double black church clap towards the end of the song tells me that I’m correct in my thinking.

This song is simply a reflection of everyone’s life.  We have all made mistakes.  We have all lost our focus and direction and really don’t know where or whom to turn to at times.  Too often, we become so full of ourselves, we try to go about life as if we’ve never needed anyone or guidance.  Many of us live a very prideful life.  But eventually, life catches up with us and all we have left to do is, pray.

It reminds me so much of the story about the prodigal son in the Bible.  Eventually, at some point, we all come back to what has stood the test of time for ages.  We all come back home to the Father, back to prayer.  At the end of the day, we just need a one-on-one as Smith states in his lyrics.

It also reminds me that no matter where you are in life or who you are or your beliefs that praying is not a bad thing.  Take a listen to this powerful audio provided by YouTube, below.

Everyone prays in the end.

Parameters Podcast: The Insecure Complex – Live Event

Has anyone else turned into a podcast junkie like myself?  I have the ratchet podcast along with the documentaries; there’s also political podcast on my playlist followed by true stories, true crime, radio podcast, people talking about random things, etc..  There is literally something for everyone to choose from.  AND, if you are living under a rock or completely unsure of what a podcast is, they are typically series of digital audio that you can download and listen to.  The great thing about a podcast is that you don’t have to worry about missing a show or being readily available at 7PM every Tuesday night when the new episodes drop.  If you subscribe to a particular podcast, new episodes will automatically download into whatever audio device you are using (I use iTunes and after I listen to a podcast they’ll automatically delete too, which I think is pretty cool).   Continue reading
