Earlier this week, a friend posted the words to one of Keith Green‘s most memorable songs along with a picture of a sunrise at the beach. Just seeing those words reminded me how much I loved Green’s music even though I was only beginning to discover it when he died in a plane crash at the age of 28. We can only wonder at what his prophetic voice might be telling us today. Below is a video from one of the first Keith Green songs I ever heard … well, it’s the audio anyway. Back then – believe it or not – people didn’t have such easy access to video!
P.S. As a writer, I love this quote from Keith Green:
I only want to build God’s Kingdom and see it increase, not my own. If someone writes a great poem no one praises the pencil they used, they praise the one who created the poem. Well, I’m just a pencil in the hands of the Lord. Don’t praise me, praise Him!
