Back in December, I did a blog post about an interview that Kirk Cameron did on his show "Takeaways" with Matthew West, who is a singer/ songwriter. (blog link referenced below)
Matthew mentioned the fact that "he can't separate his art from his faith." He goes on to say that "we have all been given a voice, and we should not overlook the opportunities right in front of us."
I had mentioned in that post that there is something profound about creativity, whether it is in writing songs/ poetry, etc...
In the Bible there are five poetic books (Psalms, Proverbs, Job, Song of Songs, and Ecclesiastes), and one of my favorite verses in the book of Proverbs is: "a word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver" - Proverbs 25:11
With so many people in the hospitality industry struggling on so many levels, it can sometimes be a lot to listen to each and every day, and experience as well. Many are extremely overworked; spread way too thin doing way too many tasks; taking on way too many responsibilities which are really not theirs to bare; and many are feeling, sadly, both unappreciated and undervalued for what they bring to the table each day.
A great friend of mine sent me this Matthew West song, and I thought this would be the perfect post to share it. It is called "Truth be Told."
Hope you enjoy and take in the amazing lyrics! Super poetic and filled with much wisdom!
