After Your Dreams Have All Died

“After your dreams have all died…what are you?” That’s the final question in “New Low” from Middle Class Rut. The video will make you sad and then make you laugh with its dark comedy.

Songs like “New Low” are why blues songs can move us so deeply. They tell us the truth about life’s problems. Good art shows the truth as the artist understands it.

Sadly, the good news is not part of most blues songs. The good news is Jesus’ message that God loves you perfectly and has the power to transform your life. If you’re not on speaking terms with Jesus, tell him you would like to believe. Ask him to show up in your life.

Here are two shortcuts to finding God. Find a Bible, and start reading in the Gospel of John. Visit a church this Sunday. You are always welcome at Holy Cross in Ojai, California.
