Today I was browsing through YouTube, mainly for Whitney Houston's videos. When I came across 'I look to you', she just spoke to my heart.
You see many people have negative views concerning Whitney Houston mainly with regards to her drug addiction. But when I watched many of her live performances of gospel songs I could not shake the thought that 'this woman really loved the lord'. She sang with passion and I could feel her cry for help. Clive Davis in one of his interviews said when he decided to release the last album for Whitney, he asked her what she wanted to sing about; without hesitation Whitney said "my faith is very important to me and that's what I want to sing about". It's such a shame that people who call themselves Christians are the ones who condemned her the most.
I believe we can all learn something of value from Whitney's existence on this earth; NO MATTER HOW CRAZY AND HOPELESS YOUR LIFE IS, DON'T STOP REACHING OUT TO GOD FOR HELP. You might be in the gutter right now and covered in dirt and sin, but if you continue to cry out to God for help he will surely pull you out and set your feet on dry ground.
It is very sad that Whitney's life ended tragically; but even those people the world considers to be hopeless can serve Gods purpose for mankind. Therefore let us support each other as we walk with Christ every day; tomorrow it might be us desperately needing HELP.
