Humility and Submission



Today I learned a little bit about Humility and Submission. Both were required in order for me to allow other people in my life to help me through some issues in production.
     The issue of humility led me to change my initial idea for the upcoming Mixtape, "#HeroesArise". I thought that I should change my ideas because they were too aggressive toward false doctrine, and for some reason, those songs weren't forming properly. The songs I DID have written were so much better than the ideas I wanted to write about. some would call it a lack of discipline, but I feel like the Holy Spirit really shifted my thinking on this.

My thoughts were affirmed in a letter from an Elder in my church who wrote:

  "I have never ever in 28 years of being a christian ever won a disagreement on doctrine by arguing against false doctrine. I have won though by simply and consistently teaching good doctrine."
I am starting to realize that the fight is really done much differently in the Spiritual than it is in the intellectual [realms].  That's all i can say about that for now.
     My issues in submission came from me loosening up over some ideas I had about a video shoot.  I wanted to have things done a certain way and I wanted to have things LINE UP a certain way before I would let anyone help me.  It's one of the reasons I never let people near the booth when I'm experimenting. 
     But today was different.  I let someone help me.  I put myself into a state of submission.  And you know what?  It turned out pretty grand.  I can't give away any details, but for now, I can say that it was well worth it.
I'll see you all soon!
