Amplify Your Playlist With These 12 Songs, You'll Thank Me Later

My music taste is all over the place. I do not just like one genre, and I currently have started listening to a lot more artists that are really different. None of these are new, but they might be things that you missed. So, just take what you like and leave what you don't.

"HUMBLE." - Kendrick Lamar (SKRILLEX REMIX)

First of all, "HUMBLE" is a classic. There is no denying that. Skrillex? Another classic. Both of them together is amazing!

"Throwin' Elbows" - Excision & Space Laces

My boyfriend's brother (aka my future brother in law) showed me this song about a week ago. He and I enjoy dancing obnoxiously whenever possible, and this is the perfect song for dance parties.

"I Don't Die" - Joyner Lucas & Chris Brown

If you have never listened to Joyner Lucas, where have you been? He is amazing! Equally, Chris Brown has a beautiful voice — we hate him but love the song.

"Pray For Riddim" - Virtual Riot

So back to this whole dubstep thing, I have never liked it, but I have been trying to broaden my music horizons, which has taken me here.

"She Loves" (feat. Fabolous) - Ace Hood

Ace Hood. That is all.

"That's Not Me" (feat. JME) - Skepta

My boyfriend showed me Skepta the first week I knew him. I was immediately intrigued by his voice. After all, he is a British rapper. Honestly, how many of those do you know? Not many!

"All I Have" (feat. Aviella) - QUIX

This is such a song if you are in the mood to jam out very intensely. This song is really different in how they do drops and the way they are set up, I promise you will like it.

"She Got the Best of Me" - Luke Combs

Listen, I don't want to hear it. I have recently jumped on the country bandwagon, and I have no shame but just absolutely LOVE for Luke Combs. He has a beautiful voice and amazing lyrics — he literally can do no wrong.

"Take It From Me" - Jordan Davis

You are lying if you say this is not a cute song! His voice is really unique. It's just a song I would listen to at full blast with the windows down.

 "Runaway" - Mike Perry

This is just a feel good song. A lot of the time I just put it on when I need a little pick-me-up!

 "Who Hurt You?" - Daniel Caesar

Daniel Caesar is hands down one of the most talented artists of this current time. If you have never listened to him, then I HIGHLY recommend you do — his voice is beautiful.

 "Eye to Eye (I2I)" (feat. Rosie Gaines) - Tevin Campbell

Yes, this is that song from "A Goofy Movie!" And yes, I still listen to it when I am 20. I suggest that you do too!

It does not get much better than this folks. It may not be a lot but it is enough to get you a playlist started or give you a taste of someone who is your potential favorite new artist! You're welcome.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

1747
Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

3140
Is God Reckless?


First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
