Seeing things upside down

What popped into my mind the instant I saw the title Christian had chosen for this blog was Derek Webb's newest album, "I See Things Upside Down." I don't think we as Christians like to flip our minds around to see things right. It's a huge step to even acknowledge that we've been looking at life all wrong, but it's a daily struggle to reject what we now realize is backwards and to embrace the truth.

Here are the lyrics to that song. For more Derek Webb, go to www.derekwebb.com.

"i see things upside down"(words and music by derek webb)

what looks like failure is success
and what looks like poverty is riches
when what is true looks more like a knife
it looks like you’re killing me
but you’re saving my life

chorus
but i give myself to what looks like love
and i sell myself for what feels like love
and i pay to get what is not love
and all just because i see things upside down

what looks like weakness can do anything
and what looks like foolishness is understanding
when what is powerful has not come to fight
it looks like you’re going to war
but you lay down your life

chorus

what looks like torture is a time to rejoice
what sounds like thunder is a comforting voice
when what is beautiful looks broken and crushed
and i say i don’t know you
but you say it’s finished
when what is beautiful looks broken and crushed
and i say i don’t know you
but you say it’s finished

Hello from Mark,a fellow WTS student and huge Derek Webb/Caedmons Call fan. I'm friends with Derek and several members of CC through my long association with the Rumor Forum http://rocksmyfaceoff.net/forum/index.php
which began as an unofficial Caedmons fan site. Great to see some fellow bloggers and Derek/CC fans from Westy!
