I believe I was 14 years old when my mom took me and a few friends of mine to a Rich Mullins concert. I remember he walked out with a white t-shirt, blue jeans with holes in the knees, and bare feet. I had listened to his music all throughout my childhood, but now that he was in the same room as me, it was like I fell in love. Not with him, but with everything about him. From the moment he walked onto the stage, I was captivated. I think it was his ability to speak about the things of God and his struggles with such honesty. He was just so real. Some of his songs even seem child-like. I think what hit me was his humanness. Is that a word? Like David. A sinner but a man after God's own heart. He wasn't the normal church-going Christian I was use to. That is what I desire so much for others to see in me. I long for it in my life. And when I listen to his music, the longing is can be unbearable. (In a good way.) When I listen to Rich's music, I have to immerse myself. I can't just listen to one song. I have to listen till I feel saturated. His music makes me feel God sitting next to me. If you have ever heard him, I'm pretty sure you know what I mean. It is so hard to pick one song, so I picked two. Be With You is probably my favorite. I hope you love them both as much as I do.
