DISCLAIMER: I am a huge believer in the power of God to speak to each of us through contemporary culture. I believe he uses the things that the world offers us to allow us a "Thin Place" to meet with him: that through these cultural moments he shows us glimpses of Himself, our potential, and of His purpose and Kingdom.
As far as music goes, I'm a Spotify kind of guy. I have been for a while now. The wife and I don't even own a CD player, though we're recently upgraded to a car that has one... Yes, you read that right... We had a cassette player in the old one! In fact, due to the fact that we were struggling to find cassettes with new music on, we found that it was easiest to plug in Spotify through my phone.
Anyway, the preamble just sets me up for talking about the "Discover Weekly" function that I've appreciated because it throws new music at me.
Listening this week I was bombarded with the following lyrics:
Today I want to recommit to falling in love with a stranger who is unbelievably mine.
Today I want to recommit ot not settling for the conventional, taught or prescribed church theology and image of God, but to exploring and discovering more for himself... To being so in love that I don't want this stranger ot be a stranger anymore, but to delve deep enough to always discover the "strangeness" of God, so that the more I discover, the more I discover there is to discover and the more in love I fall.
God grant me fresh eyes...
Would you open them to what's under my nose, that I might be surprised daily by your beauty...
May I never become complacent and forever proclaim with a grateful heart "I Can't believe you're mine" and that I am yours...
God would you remind me of the mystery of you, and may that mystery fuel the fire to fall deeper in love with you...
Show me something new of you, remind me constantly of why my heart jumped when we first met...
MY GOD YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL!
