“Shining Bright” in God’s Love


In the Name of God: The Eternally and Everlastingly Loving and Caring 

There are many times that the songs I may happen to hear will cause me to frown. So much of popular music today is comprised of lyrics that are questionable (at the absolute best) in their morality and message. Yet, sometimes, a song will come along that strikes a deep chord in me. Such is the case with Echosmith’s song, “Bright”:

I think the Universe is on my side/Heaven and Earth have finally aligned/Days are good, and that’s the way it should be

You sprinkle stardust on my pillowcase/It’s like a moonbeam brushed across my face/Nights are good, and that’s the way it should be

And I see colors in a different way/You make what doesn’t matter fade to gray/Life is good, and that’s the way it should be

I also really like the chorus: 

Did you see that shooting star tonight?/Were you dazzled by the same constellation?/Did you and Jupiter conspire to get me?

I think you and the moon and Neptune got it right, ‘cuz now I’m shining bright/So Bright. Bright, so bright.

Now, the song’s narrator feels this way because she is in love. In fact, she says to her lover: “I get lost in your eyes.” When I hear this song, however, I think of my “shining bright” in the love of God.
