Friday Music: Confidence and its limits


pride avettsConfidence. When you hear that word you might think it is always good. But it’s not always good. There are limits to confidence. At a certain level it becomes boldness, and then rashness. Boldness is a sort of low pride. Rashness is pride too, except higher (I sort of am that way too!). After that comes over-confidence, then self-idolatry. That is what happened to king Herod, who got eaten by worms in Acts 12:20-23. And what is proper confidence? Faith in God and that you can do anything through Him who gives you strength (see Hebrews 4:16 for more on confidence).

“The Perfect Space”

I wanna have friends that I can trust,
that love me for the man I’ve become not the man I was.
I wanna have friends that will let me be
all alone when being alone is all that I need.I wanna fit in to the perfect space,
feel natural and safe in a volatile place.
And I wanna grow old without the pain,
give my body back to the earth and not complain.
Will you understand when I am too old of a man?
And will you forget when we have paid our debt
who did we borrow from? Who did we borrow from?Okay part two now clear the house.
The party’s over take the shouting and the people,
get out!I have some business and a promise that I have to hold to.
I do not care what you assume or what the people told you.
Will you understand, when I am too old of a man?
Will you forget when we have paid our debts,
who did we borrow from? Who did we borrow from?I wanna have pride like my mother has,
And not like the kind in the Bible that turns you bad.
And I wanna have friends that I can trust,
that love me for the man I’ve become and not the man that I was.
