Pick Up a Mirror
When I was in college, a friend introduced me to mewithoutYou. This band is truly weird. Their sound is not orthodox by any means but, I gave their music a chance and, I got hooked. The lyrics spoke to me in ways other artists didn’t. I was in a weird place in college. I started to take my faith seriously. As I did that I had to face my past sins and, my past sins taught me a lot.
I learned the greatness of God and, the weakness of me.
God is utterly holy and, I am utterly sinful.
God is the giver of life and, I was living in death.
God is light and, I was living in darkness.
I learned that the glory of God was of utmost importance. A line in the mewithoutYou song below has this lyric in it:
Oh, my G-d!
‘I do not exist,’ we faithfully insist
while watching sink the heavy ship of everything we knew
if ever you come near I’ll hold up high a mirror
Lord, I could never show you anything as beautiful as you
I was watching my past life sink in the abyss of forgiveness and, I realized that the most beautiful thing is God himself.
“If ever you come near, I’ll hold up high a mirror. Lord, I could never show you anything as beautiful as you.”
I pray that all that read this blog will realize that there is nothing more beautiful than our God.
Thanks for reading.
