Have you ever heard a song and felt the lyrics were written just for you?
As I was walking on the beach early one morning I had my earphones on and was listening to the music of our new Body & Soul session, “What’s Next?” The song This is Living by Hillsong Young & Free started playing and I heard the words “See the sun now bursting through the clouds, black & white turn to color all around. All is new, in the Savior I am found.” Just then as if perfectly on cue, the sun burst out of the clouds in a display of beauty that took my breath away. I felt like God was sending me a personal message, reminding me that he knew exactly what was next for me, and that his plans for me were as perfect as that sunrise. It felt like a personal blessing, and brought a smile to my face. I took out my phone and snapped a picture so I could remember that moment—a moment when music and beauty collided in inspiration that touched my heart personally.
It is my prayer that the music of the songs in this session and the message in the lyrics will lift you up and encourage you each day as you exercise with us in Body & Soul. We would love to hear if a particular song touches your heart. Share your story with us. That way you can encourage others, as you are encouraged yourself! Listen to the song This is Living right now:
Check out the complete What’s Next? songlist below in the front of the session devotional, but don’t stop there—take time to read the encouraging thoughts and Scriptures in the devotional. It will give you insights into God’s message in the session.
One more thing—below you will find links to the lyrics for each song. Read them so you are familiar with them and can hear the message clearer as you exercise. We hope that all these resources will lift you up as God guides you into the next adventures he has for you!
