Stand Up

Happy Monday Music Lovers,

I truly apologize for not posting a blog last week, but have you ever had one of those weeks where things are just crazy as ever?  However, no matter how crazy they were I loved every minute of every day because day by day dreams are coming true.  This week was tough for me to pick a song because so many lyrics were hitting so close to my heart. After deep thought, my song for Music Monday this week is Sugarland’s, “Stand Up,” written by Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush.  Sugarland’s newest album Incredible Machine has true talent flowing out of every song featured on the album.  This song is one of those songs where the lyrics become an anthem and you want to stand up and use your voice.

There’s a comfort

There’s healing

High above the pain and sorrow

Change is coming

Can you feel it?

Calling us into a new tomorrow


We all have days where pain and sorrow seem to consume us, and it is hard to see the brighter moments ahead.  Bad days are meant to teach us to appreciate the days where the sun is shining high and we are living every moment.  If life were always perfect, how would we develop our character?   One of my favorite quotes on character is by an anonymous author; “We have no right to ask when a sorrow comes, why did this happen to me?  Unless, we ask the same for every joy that comes our way.”

When the walls fall all around you

When your hope has turned to dust

Let the sound of love surround you

Beat like a heart in each of us

 

We have all had our heartbroken at some point in our lives.  Whether it be the first grade crush on Jimmy or the one who walked away when you thought they were everything to you. We all have walls built from that moment on to protect our hearts.  One thing we forget in those moments where it seems the world is ending, is how we have so many people in our lives who love us and will be there to help us pick the pieces back up.  This verse reminds me that at times our hope will be shattered, but it can be built back up by remembering all the love.

Won’t you stand up and use your voice?

This is the most powerful line throughout the whole song.  Each and every one of us has a voice and we choose whether or not to use the most powerful tool God gave us.  Reread the verse and just think about it for yourself.   I will leave you with your own thoughts.

As always bloggers, until next time, keep those ears entertained.

Musically,

Chelsea ♫
