I am in the beginning of my journey as a spoken word artist. At the moment my art is majority expressed via independent videos posted to my social media as well as collaborative work done with a worship collective, WorshipMob. This video is just one more step in direction God is leading me. After weeks of researching, praying, and receiving pieces of stanzas and lines, there was a time when I was able to sit and pull everything together to produce a piece that I believe shows the passion of Christ in that He struggled and fought for the opportunity for us to reconcile with Him and how similarly our struggle to emulate Christ comes with its own battles and wrestling.
This is by far one of my favorite passages of scripture. I actually learned in while in Sunday School where each peace was made tangible as if we were literally putting on each piece of the armor. As I was preparing the poem, I was considering how difficult it is to carry the gospel to the world while still allowing it to minister to yourself. I know even in my own life, I find difficulties even after salvation.
