this is my secular song (things only christians say) of the day…
florence + the machine - dog days are over
this song will forever remind me of spring 2011. that was such an interesting season of my life. post-college, pre-ywam… i visited my dear friend in seattle for spring break in march, then went to nyc to see another dear friend in april. i actually found out i was going to germany during my stay in nyc.
things have never been the same for me. in fact, when i graduated college i felt lost in the accomplishment of a degree i never really wanted. i had no idea what the world held for me. then, it was like seeing the light of day. the dog days were over and God encountered me in a huge way. he healed my heart and set me on a completely new path. it was one he’d been preparing for me my entire life.
isn’t awesome to be in relationship with a God that wants to encounter us in a multitude of ways… even speak to our hearts through florence + the machine. it’s like he was giving me hope to keep going because the next step of my life was going to be so great.
i’m having a moment right now, if you couldn’t tell, realizing how awesome God is.
