Follow Your Arrow


This week my daughter was super excited to watch the Grammy's.  I wasn't really but as all Mama's understand, I did it for her.  Turns out I wasn't super excited to listen to Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.  I actually thought they were dead.  Anyways I have to admit, most of the time I was ignoring the TV and browsing Pinterest, until one song came on.  This song left my mind reeling and my mouth hanging open.  I just could NOT believe what I had just heard.

If you've ever wondered, for even a second, what is wrong with the world...why our young people are being led astray...what teens are buying into the lies...why God's voice is being drowned out...just read the lyrics to this song.

It's basically about whatever you do, do it because it makes you happy. Don't follow after others, but go your own path. Basically telling you to follow your heart, which the Bible specifically says is deceitful and lies (Jeremiah 17:9).

I believe in pointing my arrow in the direction of Jesus.  There are aimless, longing souls out there looking for a place to land. Each of us should paint a big red target on our character so that we attract those wandering arrows.

If you save yourself for marriage
You're a bore
If you don't save yourself for marriage
You're a horrible person
If you won't have a drink
Then you're a prude
But they'll call you a drunk
As soon as you down the first one

If you can't lose the weight
Then you're just fat
But if you lose too much
Then you're on crack
You're damned if you do
And you're damned if you don't
So you might as well just do
Whatever you want
So

Make lots of noise
Kiss lots of boys
Or kiss lots of girls
If that's something you're into
When the straight and narrow
Gets a little too straight
Roll up a joint, or don't
Just follow your arrow
Wherever it points, yeah
Follow your arrow
Wherever it points

If you don't go to church
You'll go to hell
If you're the first one
On the front row
You're self-righteous
Son of a-
Can't win for losing
You'll just disappoint 'em
Just 'cause you can't beat 'em
Don't mean you should join 'em

So make lots of noise
Kiss lots of boys
Or kiss lots of girls
If that's something you're into
When the straight and narrow
Gets a little too straight
Roll up a joint, or don't
Just follow your arrow
Wherever it points, yeah
Follow your arrow
Wherever it points

Say what you think
Love who you love
'Cause you just get
So many trips 'round the sun
Yeah, you only
Only live once

So make lots of noise
Kiss lots of boys
Or kiss lots of girls
If that's what you're into
When the straight and narrow
Gets a little too straight
Roll up a joint, I would
And follow your arrow
Wherever it points, yeah
Follow your arrow
Wherever it points
