I am always late when it comes to music. I’m never the first person to listen to an album when it drops unless I am already a huge fan of the artist or they’ve released some pretty good singles. But it’s rare. If you told me to check out an album or an artist, I probably wouldn’t for at least a year. And the reason why is because I believe music is supposed to be inspired. You listen to a song one day and it’s just plain catchy, but a month later you hear it and it’s almost as if you’re hearing it for the first time. In some weird way, I believe good music has a perfect timing to it. And when the time is right, suddenly the words hit home.
So skip the fact that I’m completely in love with Andra’s voice – this song is everything. Based on Oswald Chamber’s quote, ‘We must build our faith not on fading lights, but on the Light that never fails‘, Andra reminds me of what John tells us in 1 John 2:15-17 :
Do not love the world [of sin that opposes God and His precepts], nor the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
