Macklemore’s songs have got hundreds of millions of views on YouTube. They’re not for everyone but I think people relate to his songs partly cos they express the pain and frustration of trying to figure out life in a messed-up world. Here’s a clip from ‘Inhale Deep’:

‘It’s been so long since I really truly felt / What it’s like to live without substances to help / Massive struggle that’s natural to one’s health / With addiction in my blood / I play the cards I was dealt’

So many substances and other things promise to ease the pain, confusion and heartache of life without God. Is there something trying to seduce you? What would it take to give your pain and frustration to God instead?
