week 7: diamond

I got treasure up in Heaven, I got dirt all over me. I have only scratched the surface of the man I'm meant to be. I got something down inside of me that only You can see, help me dig a little deeper now and set that diamond free.

I've been listening to Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic (any fellow audiobook lovers??), and it has my mind racing over creativity, inspiration, vision. What does it mean to live creatively? What would it look like in my own life? It's been encouraging me to take a step back and reminds me not to take my art so seriously. I believe that everyone has art inside of them, something that gives a value greater than simply living. God does not make mediocre things. He makes good things. The best things, really.

This week's song is diamond by Brandon Heath. This song was and is so much fun to sing, and many thanks to the one and only Derek for providing such wonderful, consistent guitar accompaniment! Listen to me smiling while I sing, I just can't help it. Derek does a walk up and I grin. I get excited to sing the chorus and I grin. I get excited to belt and I grin. This song just makes me so happy! 

Is it just me or is this blog looking a little bare? I need to start collecting photos to post! Anyways, Let me know what you think of the track! Share/leave a comment.
