So will I

Stargazing is something I try to do as often as possible and whenever I do I can’t help but sing “So will I” by Hillsong. Nature in itself moves me to worship Christ, because our powerful and creative God, created something so beautiful.

In the same way He created the heavens and the earth, He created you and me.
Revelation 4:11 (https://bit.ly/31RLYaf) says that God is pleased with everything He created, us humans included.

Today or in the coming week, spend some time in nature. And remember that what you see around you is as beautiful and mind blowing as the person God created you to be.



A Pocketful of Sunshine

This song by Natasha Bedingfield, A Pocketful of Sunshine, is a very upbeat song that seems to speak only about one thing – lots and lots of joy. But she isn’t the only one who has access to this kind of joy. In fact, we all are able to experience an even greater amount of joy through Jesus Christ.

Read 1 Peter 1:8 (https://bit.ly/2Orfy32).

Joy isn’t something we feel, like happiness. It’s something we experience, even with all the other things we might be feeling – sadness, anger, worry and even happiness. Joy comes from Jesus. Seek Him for your pocketful of sunshine.



Evermore – Taylor Swift

Evermore is thought to outline a healing process of poor mental health. We cannot deny our human experience of mental health and during this pandemic and for most of us we have struggled at times and felt like the pain, hardship and loneliness will be for evermore.

The book of Lamentations is a book of hardship and the writer spends much of the book complaining. Yet it’s a reminder that God’s love never stops, and that God is always faithful.

Lamentations 3:22-23 (https://bit.ly/2xD7WN8)
Today, take courage that even in today’s hardship God loves you and is faithful to you.



Amazing Grace

One of the songs sang at Joe Biden’s inauguration was Amazing Grace. Most of us are familiar with this song but its main point is a good reminder of our journey as Christ followers and makes a beautiful soundtrack to our lives.

Jesus came to seek and save the lost.
Luke 19:10 (https://bit.ly/1QiQ8KK)

As we come to know Christ we become found. With a clear conscience we can sing this song, with thankfulness loud and clear. Today, give thanks that God has found you and pray for people you know who are still lost.
