Katy Perry – Wide Awake

“Wide Awake”

I’m wide awake [2x]

(I’m wide awake)
Yeah, I was in the dark
I was falling hard
With an open heart
(I’m wide awake)
How did I read the stars so wrong?

(I’m wide awake)
And now it’s clear to me
That everything you see
Ain’t always what it seems
(I’m wide awake)
Yeah, I was dreaming for so long

I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn’t dive in
Wouldn’t bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
‘Til I woke up on—
On the concrete

Falling from cloud nine
Crashing from the high
I’m letting go tonight
Yeah, I’m falling from cloud nine

(I’m wide awake)
Not losing any sleep
I picked up every piece
And landed on my feet
(I’m wide awake)
Need nothing to complete myself, no

(I’m wide awake)
Yeah, I am born again
Out of the lion’s den
I don’t have to pretend
(And it’s too late)
The story’s over now, the end

I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn’t dive in
Wouldn’t bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
‘Til I woke up on—
On the concrete

Falling from cloud nine
(It was out of the blue)
I’m crashing from the high
I’m letting go tonight
(Yeah, I’m letting you go)
I’m falling from cloud nine

(I’m wide awake)
Thunder rumbling
Castles crumbling
(I’m wide awake)
I am trying to hold on

(I’m wide awake)
God knows that I tried
Seeing the bright side
(I’m wide awake)
I’m not blind anymore

I’m wide awake [2x]

Yeah, I’m falling from cloud nine
(It was out of the blue)
Crashing from the high
You know I’m letting go tonight
(Yeah, I’m letting you go)
I’m falling from cloud nine

I’m wide awake [5x]

A Heart for the Fashion and Entertainment Industry

What is your opinion of celebrities?  How do you view them?  Are they as worthy as you, to receive God and all that He has to offer them? Do you think they pray?  Do they ask God for help?  Is it wrong to assume that because some celebrities are caught up in sex, drugs, and alcohol, that they couldn’t possibly matter to God?  That they shouldn’t matter to anyone?  What do you think?  Don’t orphans and homeless people deserve Christian love, more than someone who blatantly chooses a life of sin?  And who defines what sin really is?  Don’t all of us sin, even if just in our minds alone?  If we could all read each others minds, what would we really think of one another?  Have you hated somebody without ever even meeting them face-to-face?  Have you taken what the media offers, as full and complete proof that somebody is essentially worthless?

Many of you probably don’t know this, but I have a 21yr old daughter who is a full-time missionary.  She works mostly with models, actors, celebrities, and skateboarders.

I wanted to share this video with all of you that she recently put together.  Some of the video footage is from places that she has visited on her many missionary travels, while other parts are simply clips found on YouTube.

She originally created this video for a prayer session that she was asked to lead.  I was really touched by her words, and felt the need to share this video with the world.  I am hoping by sharing this, that it might help others see the entertainment industry in a different light.

Everyone always asks my daughter why she works with the kind of people that she does.  People matter to God, no matter where they come from or who they are. This video shares the reasons why she feels called to this type of missionary work.

I hope that you will be blessed as I have been, through this story that comes from her heart.
