A Little Note about Faith. 
Had a great conversation with a friend last night while we were waiting for TV On The Radio to take the stage (be jealous :p lol) and here’s a thought from that conversation that I want to share. Basically, there are two kinds of people in the world…those with faith and those without it. Faith in what? Not as important as just having faith. 
Here’s where I fit in:
Less than a month ago I was very excited because TV On The Radio, a band I have only rather recently fallen head over heels in love with, was playing in Miami. Unfortunately, that very day my car got towed and I had to spend all this money dealing with that. Needless to say I was heart-broken. I could not go to the concert. Fast-forward to almost a month later and I hear that TV On The Radio is coming back. I get extremely excited. Unfortunately, I then find out it is a private party not open to the general public. Heartbreak, again. But, what light through yonder window break? A small hope. The venue, Ricochet, is holding a contest where, from facebook posts and shares of their page, they would hand-select a few guests for the show. I got right to it. I wrote them everyday and begged for tickets, but nothing. The same week my car window got smashed, just because, ya know, that’s life. Anyway, The day before the show I come home from work. I’m playing my guitar when it occurs to me to do something ridiculous. I write Ricochet a song and I record a video of me singing it to them in a plea for tickets. Next day (day of the show), after the people who were supposed to fix my car window don’t show up and my day is starting to turn into a quite miserable one, I look on facebook and see that Ricochet loves my video and wants to give me free tickets for the show. Fifteen minutes later the window people showed up and made my car look as if nothing ever happened. A few hours later, I’m standing inches away from a band I love, whose music has touched me incredibly, with one of my best friends, screaming our hearts out, and jumping with a room full of people, and life COULD NOT be any better than that moment. These pictures are the evidence.
What category do I fall into? I have a faith that cannot be shaken. I have a faith that there is a God in the universe, who loves me so much that he would make that happen for me. You might think, “so what? It’s really not a big deal in the large scheme of things. It’s only a concert”. Well, you’re right. However, I’m also the kind of person who believes life is not always about the big scheme, but rather, those little precious moments, a compilation of little precious acts, that undoubtedly prove to me that God’s hand is beautifully at work in my life. This wouldn’t have happened without my talent; God-given, and this would not have happened without my hope and faith. Faith that life is beautiful and God is good. Faith in my friends, faith in people, faith in love, faith in art, faith in the world. I have need of nothing in my life! I’m so happy to simply be alive. It is such an amazing, precious gift, life is. I will never forget that night, or how it came about. How God could make all those things come to place, and even trust me a little to make it happen as well, to simply give me a night that would give me inexplicable, inexpressible, unique joy. 
And at the end of the night I got to shake Tunde Adebimpe’s hand and thank him for his music. Wow.
