It’s been one of those days. I’m sure you know what I mean. After a night of weird dreams and little sleep, you wake up with a cough, the ground is covered in a foot of snow, and of all things it’s a Monday. It’s a perfect day to dwell on all the negative things about life as I sit in the Resound office attempting yet failing to do my homework. Sigh. The song Holy by the City Harmonic plays over the speakers and I can’t help but listen to it. It is such a powerful song, yet extremely poetic and beautiful. I take in the lyrics, and I get chills. The chorus says, “This is the story of the Son of God hanging on a cross for me, but it ends with a bride and groom and a wedding by a glassy sea. Oh death where is thy sting, cause I’ll be there singing holy is the Lord.” I don’t think I can describe to you my new found obsession over these lyrics. They remind me that life is hard, that we live in a broken world, and that we will have days where we feel awful. But this is not the end. There is so much more to our life than the present. There is a hope we have to look forward to that transcends all our bad days, all our pain, and all our struggles. One day we will be at that wedding by a glassy sea. One day we will be there singing Holy, and everything wrong will have been made right. Now that is something to live for. So yeah, I may still have a cough, I may still have to trudge through the slushy snow, and it may still be Monday, but one day that won’t be so.
