"Echoes of the Barn" Meaning behind the song: In our Christian walk, there are times when we feel like we have everything under control. It's in those times that we need to hit our knees in prayer, because we've been standing on our own two feet for too long. We know that our bad decisions cause us pain, but we continue to make them. My favorite part about this song is the chorus. "Lifting hands with crossed fingers never solved a thing." We want to stand before our fellow believers with our hands raised in praise to God, all the while our fingers are crossed behind our backs hoping everything turns our instead of trusting the God who promises it will. "Praising Your name with my two-sided mouth." In James it states that salt water and fresh water can't come from the same spring, and neither should praises and curses come from the same mouth. Don't try and put on a face for others when you enter the Church building on Sunday, and then completely blend in with the world Monday-Saturday. When it comes down to it, we are literally nothing without Jesus. God has this way of completely turning our world's upside down and at the same time placing us on a firm foundation of Truth. We just need to trust Him. FACEDOWN (Leviticus 9:22-24) This song, "Facedown", was named for the breakdown in the middle. Some of the kids at our church decided to lay face down instead of hard core dancing during the break down-thus the name. This song has a broad meaning and I hope many are made aware that they are not alone in their thoughts about God. Sometimes we can feel so alone and so far away from God, but it's not God who moves, it's us. We whine and cry when trouble comes and crawl up to the altar. God's presence makes us feel good and then five minutes later, we are right back to the pile of vomit we were asking God to take away. I feel so stupid sometimes when I realize I've done that very same thing. Throughout our ministry, we've met a lot of people that have made the statement, "God and I have an understanding". Basically, they would tell us that God would allow them to sin in a certain way. That's so far from the truth. So many lost souls, it's sad. We have got to learn to look within ourselves first to make sure we are doing everything we can to follow God's law. Jesus died for everyone's sins and we should fall "facedown" in worship whether times are good or bad! I think Job said it best, "Shall we only take the good from God and not the bad"? 'Holy Joe" Meaning behind the song: The dirt of the world seems suffocating sometimes. I remember being at a place in my life not too many years ago when I was just lying on the floor, my face buried in the carpet praying. I was so overwhelmed by life in that moment and in the stillness I almost audibly heard God say "This too shall pass." Instantly I felt peace. Knowing that it would be just a moment in time, and that God had it under control was just what I needed. My prayers then changed from focusing on my self pity to that of destroying the enemy, satan. We need to be purified from the inside out to know and understand God's plan for our lives. We need all of our impurities brought out into the light! When the enemy surrounds you on every side, just make sure you are wearing the full armor of God and he will fight for you. We don't have any right to question God or to contemplate how WE think He will take care of our problems. We all scoff at Peter when he doubted as he was walking on the water with Jesus, but our faith is small. When we are in the middle of the battle, on the very front lines, we just have to remember to stay strong and fight, because we've already been promised eternal life, we can't die. "Photographing Apathy" Meaning behind the song: Ever have someone whose words had a way of cutting you down? Ever feel like they didn't care at all, like you could take a picture of their apathy? Have you ever been that person? Of course you have. It's like the old saying though, hate the sin, not the sinner. Sometimes we so desperately want to know the truth, until we realize that the actual truth that comes out of someone's mouth hurts. The beautiful thing about being broken is the chance to be renewed by the Savior. We can scream our hurts and pains to the world all we want, and when push meets shove, the world doesn't care. Until we decide to STOP making the same choices over and over again that hurt us, the quicksand of satan's lies will suck us in. The world will betray you, lie to you and always let you down, but Christ NEVER will. "Psalm of Questioning" Meaning behind the song: The actual meaning of the word "psalm" is: song. So this is literally a "Song" of questioning. Ever gotten to the point in your life when you look at yourself and say "How can this be my life?!" I have. It's in those moments when you just can't even cry one more tear because you've cried so long that you beg God not to let you go. If you're not growing in your walk with Christ, you have become like stagnant water. Standing in one place so long that you can't even feel your legs any longer. Christ desires that we continually grow in Him, not get to a point of "satisfaction" in our walk with Him. When it comes down to it, His truth never fades. We can choose to live a life of unforgiveness towards others and harbor bitterness in our hearts, but it will only lead to heartache. If you get to the point of asking yourself "How can this be my life?" Just reach out to Jesus, He's never far away. "Walls Will Sing" The title to this song suggests a place that doesn't exist or a land far, far away when in actuality it is speaking of Heaven. This song is a rather violent account of realizing and trying to justify the sin in our life. When God calls you, there is this stirring inside. The violent battle occurs because we try to hold on to these things we have held for a long time. Sometimes it takes ripping, tearing, banging and screaming. As we accept Jesus as our Savior, His blood pours over us and starts the change that is often painful. There will never be a more rewarding change. Although as humans we tend to think change is bad, it is very much needed so that we can become closer to God, so...let your song be carried to where the walls will sing. "Tunnels" Meaning behind the song: A lot of times as Christians we don't want to let anyone see that we hurt. So, instead of laying it all at the altar and finding someone to talk to about it, we let our tormenting thoughts bind us inside our pain. When really all we need is to be "recreated" by the Creator. Admitting that we can't do it by ourselves is the only way to let Jesus take our burdens. When you finally realize that you're not strong enough to live in fear, only then can Jesus"take the stage" or take control. When we get into places of temptation and there's no one around to keep us accountable, instead of taking God's way out, we stay in the midst of the situation. Remember, you have never run so far from God that He can't reach you. When you wonder to yourself, "Where is God, now that I need Him most?!", just turn around. When it comes down to it, when you're standing on the edge between life and death, you cannot allow your selfish desires to win, but must surrender before the Mighty God. "Take Me Home" Simply put, "Take Me Home" is a song that tells of my longing to be with God. Not a presence that we feel here on Earth, but that one-on-one relationship that only God can create. Too many times we allow life to push God aside and get us side-tracked. Our job as children of God is to live every moment as Jesus did-pleasing God in every part of our life, large and small. Sometimes this world just makes me want to scream. I don't feel like I fit here anymore, so I cry out to God, "Take me home!". Though I must and will praise God in the good and bad, I long to be with Him. "Waltzes at Midnight" Meaning behind the song: Ever take the time to go through old photos or notes you have tucked away somewhere? I ran across some once upon a time and started dwelling on moments that had happened years earlier, and that old anger started to rise up in me again. I recall those moments like slow dancing with a skeleton. It's absolutely pointless. Those notes mean nothing to me unless I let them. So I could move on I put those notes back in that box where they belonged. Even though some of that old pain resurfaced, I moved on and resolved that I'd forgiven those just as Jesus had forgiven me. In those moments when we feel like we can't fight, let Jesus do it for you. I remember as a teenager begging that God would make this happen, or that happen. Now that I look back, why would I want to waste Christ's miracles on something that was never meant to be in the first place? You can never move on in your walk with Christ until you let your old self stay dead, and remember that you are a new creation in Christ Jesus. "Depend on You" Every time I look in the mirror, I think about who I really am. All my faults, fears and insecurities. I see the things I need to improve on. The battle that is going on inside all of us is constant. The closer you come to God, the more satan hates you and tries to tear you apart. Sometimes he attacks by going against your friends and family. It gets to the point of feeling like there is no hope and that's when God really begins to show you that He loves you. I know it sounds strange, but God wants you to depend on Him for everything. The little things in life that are simple is where God is there, smiling at His child, watching you live in a way that pleases Him. And when things get difficult, He is there also, hurting with you. Don't try everything else first and then turn to God, let Him be your first line of defense. "Let Go" Meaning behind the song: In this generation it has become very common that if we do not fit in with what society calls "perfect" or have pain in our life that is too much to bear that we cut ourselves, or make ourselves bulimic or anorexic. This breaks my heart just to think about it. We are God's children, inheritors of the Kingdom of God! And we allow satan to tell us that we aren't worth anything because we don't live up to the standards of this world! All Christ wants from you is to let go of what you're holding. Let go of your hurts, your pain, your scars and painful memories and let Him handle them and make your pain go away. We are told from a very small age to decide "what we want to be when we grow up". Let God have your dreams and your nightmares, your success and your failure, your laughter and your tears. Trusting to let God handle the things that hurt is sometimes easier than trusting Him with your future or with the things you have planned for yourself or your family. If you surrender all your best laid plans to Him, He will show you just how beautiful His plans for you are. For those of you that hurt and feel like God doesn't care, just remember that He is weeping with you and wants to take that heavy burden from you. Just let go, and let God. 'You are God' (Psalm 46:10) In our life we have so many things we're involved in, school, work, church, sports, friends, and anything else that might get thrown in. Sometimes it's hard to remember to relax. Often times we take shortcuts with many things to be able to get it over with so we can free up more time for whatever else we have going on. Personally, I barely have time to eat much less have time to remember to eat! Ever since I was 8 years old my family has been very busy. My parents were the youth leaders at church, we had a ministry that catered to those in need, I was involved with three different sports, and of course I had school to worry about. Once I got older I found myself inching from God. I never read my bible and couldn't slow down to hear his voice speaking to me. I was in the moments of my teenage life where I was really finding my place; one of the most unstable parts of a young person's life. Stepping away from God only made it harder. I found myself getting depressed and hating everything and everyone. I started resorting to cutting. Twice I came to this point and both times I forgot about God. He was speaking to me softly...be still. What Satan was speaking to me and the whirl of my life was louder and so I missed his small voice. It was always a little ways down the road that I realized what I had missed. Looking back, I regret those moments where I didn't listen but I am grateful to have noticed my error at a young age. Now, I'm graduating college, work three jobs, am a youth leader, and many other things, but my relationship with God remains strong and ever increasing because I learned early on that sometimes... you just have to be still and know that he is God. 'Blame 12' I would like to say that the title of this song has some deep spiritual meaning, but the truth is the word blame is in the first line of the chorus and the first chord of the song is played on the 12th fret...so we have Blame 12. So many times we try to pass the buck and blame someone else for our problems. Most of the time it's our own fault for the pain in our lives. We try to blame God, but He's perfect so that is definitely the wrong way to go. I guess we could go on Oprah and cry about it but that wouldn't get us anything but a book deal or something like that. We need to put God everywhere in our lives and examine ourselves daily. Quit pouring salt in your own wound and give it up to God. We hope these studies have been helpful in sharing the message God has given through the songs on Holy Joe.
