Camo Kin has been very vocal about his recent health scare that lead him to accept God into his life. He told me, "that when that freak accident happened, thinking I was actually going to die made me start to really think about what happens after we die. God became very important after that."
I wanted to do this piece a little differently than most. Below are the lyrics broke up into sections with helping bible verses provided by our Chief Administrator and our Editor.
"Faith is the belief that there is a better day. Faith takes away the doubt and leaves you to only push forward. To live life by faith means giving your stress, worries, and doubt to God. Tomorrow isn't promised so stop worrying about today and live free by faith." -Kelsey Leigh
Lyrics to Redemption provided by Camo Kin: ( unedited )
I had a constant feeling, a constant urge to start kneeling, but the devil put the pride inside of my heart I felt like I need to keep sinning, RIGHT. That's what the bigger influencers, do RIGHT. They keep on drinking and smoking and lying then turn around telling their audience they love their God. What got into you I gotta do it all different, I just turned Christian.
When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
Proverbs 11:2 KJV
I am no better than them, I am a sinner, but I recognize that I could do better with God in my head. He was turning my heart when I thought I was dead, coughing up so much blood as I layed in my bed, thinking that I would be gone any second, emergency room and I'm feeling so breathless
But now, O Lord , thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
Isaiah 64:8 KJV
When I thank my lord that he gives second chance, open my heart, when my life was just sinning I thought I had it all figured out, smoke and mirrors is how the devil gains access to your own house. Thank God for my dad for planting the seeds right out of his own mouth when he talked to me about God and where I should turn when I am feeling down. I guess without that I would be lost and never to be found
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:57 KJV
Welcome to my confessions and where I Turned around SEE. I thought I was dying, I thought I was done for, laying on my death dead, then I prayed to my lord. Hands closed tight had the bible by my side. Please don't take me yet I never turned around my life.
"I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent." Luke 15:7 (NIV)
Then it...hit me...it doesn't matter, if I live from this I have to make it better dive into the bible fix my faith and grow closer to God, try to help people repair their faith when they get lost and they wanna be found. I'm ganna, pray for you, and you need that more than you think you do. LISTEN I was in the same boat tryna pull my own rows, stuck in a world ran by Satan, I was so low. So I been praying for my calling and I think I found it Write about my life and all the craziness that happened
"For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance; that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures." 1 Corinthians 15:3 ( NIV)
Maybe someone can relate and they might feel more happy. Maybe God can use me to save a life just through my rapping. Walk around an empty valley all alone you feel like no one else is around you and there's no map to get home but remember when Jesus was tempted for 40 days in the desert he never gave into temptation he gave it to the lord You can do the same thing, relief it hits you instantly, it's never too late, you just needed an epiphany, like me this is your second chance for some clarity, like me, you can wake up and take it more seriously
"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." 1 Corinthians 1:18
Listen to me, don't let it all go, you'll never wake up then you may never go home, it's in your makeup, you can feel a big empty hole, inside your stomach, when you don't give into scrolls I beg you, please, do it for your sanity, don't worry about your past just repent and he won't disagree, that you deserve to walk through the gates and live for eternity, so bow your head and pray and help others get to knowing him
"And God will open wide the gates of Heaven for you to enter into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." 2 Peter 1:11 ( Living Bible)
Wait a minute, I ain't nothin but a stranger to you, put a couple words together make em flow good, and I'm supposed to make you think that there's really a god, NAH I'm just planting seeds in you so when life gets hard, and you feel all alone like you don't know where to go and turn to all your friends and they tell you they don't know and you're sitting on your bed contemplating the end of the road, you know where to turn to GODS SPOKEN WORD
"Casting all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7
I'm ganna, pray for you, and you need that more than you think you do. LISTEN I was in the same boat tryna pull my own rows, stuck in a world ran by Satan, I was so low. So I been praying for my calling and I think I found it Write about my life and all the craziness that happened Maybe someone can relate and they might feel more happy.
I will praise the name of God with a song and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
Psalms 69:30 KJV
I hope you enjoyed the breakdown of these lyrics. Each has a helping verse after them in hopes you understand that with faith you can achieve anything. Your past doesn't define or dictate who you can become. Take it from me, I lived a life of sin for over a decade and if it wasn't for the children of Christ I would still be the same way. I had people pray for me and I had no idea that they were, and every day I swear I could feel myself changing. It was an amazing feeling. These people still pray for me today but instead of praying for my recovery they pray for me to succeed. Never underestimate the power of prayer you may never know who is praying for you.
