This song happened to start playing as I drove home yesterday. I’d never heard it before and wasn’t expecting anything, really. Then the singer yelled a challenge into my ears: “You gotta show a little backBONE.” Instantly my soul leaped to its feet and shouted, “AWWWW YEAH!”
I’m thinking of Joshua, how he bulldozed his way through all the territories, never backing down as he fought to conquer the land God had promised. As he moved from city to city, he and all his men became real warriors, fighting whether they’d gotten a lot of sleep or none at all, whether the enemy they faced was a single walled city or an army as vast as the sand on the seashore. The situation was not the deciding factor–God was, and as long as He was with them, nothing could stop them. That’s the fighting spirit I want to have, some grit, some backbone in fighting for God.
And yes, it’s not a great idea to dance and drive together…well, maybe just a little 🙂 Anyone else have a song like that?
