Cautiously Rash


I’m not a spontaneous person by nature. Well, it depends. I’m quite influenced by my emotions. If I’m rash, it’s because I’m experiencing strong emotions. Actually, I’m a really rash person. I’ll admit it. My feelings, desires, and temptations are quite strong. I don’t always think before I say and do stuff. It helps to be with a rational person who can say, “Wait! You should think!” before I do something stupid. I mean, it’s not like I wake up and think, “Hm, I’m going to do something rash today.” It just sort of happens.

Actually, it’s like I almost…think through my being rash. It seems like a paradox, so let me explain. When I’m influenced by emotions, sometimes I plan a huge comeback or revenge or something in my mind. It is not based on logic in any way. It is based solely on my emotions at the moment. Any attempts to speak logic to me in such a moment will prove futile. I will do the thing. You cannot stop me from doing the thing. Only after I do the thing do I realize that I should have listened to logic.

And that is how I am both rash and cautious at the same time. I don’t know. This all made sense in my own head, but it didn’t come out right.

His more recent music experience (for the past 7 years) is as the worship leader and song writer at New Covenant Fellowship, a relatively small but very diverse non-denominational church in Manassas, Virginia. John has earned a Bachelor’s degree in music and has studied under the likes of Peter Prisco and Turk Van Lake (arranger/guitar player with the Benny Goodman Orchestra). John recently released a worship CD with the NCF worship band, Led, called “Beyond the Walls.” “My plan here is to share the things I have learned as a lifelong musician, long time worshipper, worship leader and follower of Jesus Christ. Some of what I share will be practical, some will be musical and hopefully all will be based in the truth of God’s Word. And I expect some of it may be way out on the Wild Frontier.”
