So the other day Hillsong United released a song called Wonder. I don’t know about you but I love Hillsong United, their music is so powerful and uplifting. This song was no exception, another moving and upbeat song with lyrics that could change a person’s heart and perspective.
Today it is so easy to listen to whatever is on the radio, or whatever is catchy. But I think that music has way of influencing our minds and spirit, like nothing else. In an instant a song can either life me up or bring me down. It amazes me how I can go from listening to something mainstream ( even if its a great song ) it still doesn’t affect me the way that a Switchfoot or Jesus Culture song will.
Unfortunately we also live in a world that seems like it is powered by everything that destroys itself. To see the world through Jesus’ eyes is so difficult in a world that promotes love but never speaks it. So when Hillsong released this song it really made me think. The song is about seeing the world in wonder, seeing it in color, in the way that Jesus does. I feel as a christian it is so incredibly easy to sometimes see the lack of God in something and forget to even look for Him at all. And often forget that He is in everything.
This song really reminded me of that, and to look for Him in everything because He is there, in the hurt, in the pain, in the loss. In every sunset and hilltop, He’s there. While dealing with the dilemma of not getting accepted into the school I wanted to, it often made me feel like I wasn’t good enough. With a slight learning disability I know that there are smarter and better people out there that have no problem getting into a school. Through it all though, I was reminded that God uses our weaknesses as strengths. The devil tries to make us believe that we can’t do something but sometimes it just takes a lot of hard work and faith.
This is a short post, but I have just been so amazed by what faith can do lately. So even though I have no idea what the future may hold I will continue walking knowing that God is leading me.
I hope this helped y’all in someway and that you have a wonderful day!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you
and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
