You know, today I am thinking about the world, and the word; whilst just one letter apart, they could not be more opposite in their motives and intentions. Where the world encourages striving, the word encourages resting. Where the world says we need smaller hips, thighs and stomachs, and larger breasts, muscles, and ego’s, the word says we are made perfect in His image. Where the world says we must prove ourselves, the word says Jesus has done everything on the cross. Where the world says life is hopeless, the word says Jesus came to give us life, and life to the full, a life of hope, and a future. Where the world inspires us to follow trends that will pass and fade away, the word inspires us to follow Christ; for He is the same, yesterday, today and forever.

Sentimental music has this great way of taking you back. Somewhere at the same time it takes you forward, so you feel nostalgic and hopeful all at the same time.
