Heather Williams has a brand new single hitting radio airwaves now, and we had the pleasure of getting to talk with her about the song, and what it means to her. Watch the video interview below to see what she had to say about “You Are Loved.” Heather also has a great blog where she writes open and honestly about the things God is teaching her, and I I’m continually challenged by her words. Check out a piece of her latest post below, and visit her blog here to read more!
Confessions Of A Not So Diva Mom
There is a funny thing called reality. It is not the prettiest of things. It is not the funnest (is that even a word?) of things. It can be gritty. It can be smooth. It can be hideous and beautiful.. even at the same time. This reality is captured in many forms. Artists render pictures that show flaws and all.. that is, unless the artist has photo-shop and in that case if that artist knows what is good for him he or she will alter my face and body to make me look like a super model.. capiche?
We live in an age of instagram, photo booth, twit-pic etc..etc. We also can upload our “world premier” music video, diary of a mad (pick a color) person and rant. We live in a society that is on a quest for “reality”… but give it to us with our own “comfortable” slant please. Nowhere is this more evident than in some Christian circles. We like our reality sanitized.. thank you very much. I mean, we can’t let little Johnny or Susie know the “real” story of our past. We have to make sure that they think Mommy and Daddy were super Christians from birth carrying on the quest of Christiandom with gusto and perfection. Well, here is the warning for anyone who is easily offended.. you MIGHT want to stop reading now and find a nice Joel Osteen blog and get on with your day. I for one am NOT in the business of trying to just add fluff to your day and make sure my sweet little stories and antic dotes make you feel better about yourself and encourage you to put on a smile and fake it til you make it. (yes, I have actually heard that preached from a pulpit before)
Why do we offer people such a small view of what God can do with a life? Is it more important to protect our reputation or appearances that we do not share with others our struggles or our past sins that God has forgiven? What is the deal? Why the shame? Now, I am not suggesting that we all sit around and just go on a sin-fest-share-a-thon and have a good ol’ time.. I am saying that we can lose our effectiveness as a witness for Christ when we hide from it.
