My favorite song by my favorite band is Light by the Rocket Summer. Lately, I have been thinking about a lot of things, one of which, being my trust and my faith in God. When good things happen, do I give him the glory? When bad things happen, do I praise him anyway? I don't want to be a good-weather Christian. I want to be all in. The bridge of the song says, "I am Yours, do what You wish. I am Yours, I am Yours, and I know this: Whatever happens next is in Your hands, in Your plans, and nothing less. Every day, there is a choice, and through the joy, through the pain, I will rejoice. I am Yours, do what You wish. I am Yours, I am Yours, and I know this." These words hit hard with me every time I hear them. Yeah, I can sing them, but can I mean them? Can I rejoice through both the joy and the pain? Can I give up my plans for my life in order to let God have control? The end of the song says this: "Save me, cause I need it, and I can't help but feel desperate. My desires, they seem to be coming to their endings. But, I will trust it's not the end, but a great beginning." Giving my life to God is not the end, but instead, the beginning.
