Lent 6: Finding Love in Every Moment


I know my blog is late but I have not been sure what to share. So, I updated my website while I reflected on the week. My update includes a new page with music that inspires me. Two of those songs are Lauren Daigle's, Love Like This and Look Up Child. Before I reflect I would like to share a little bit about Lauren Diagle. First of all, to me what makes her different is her style of music, especially in the Christian music world. She brings a unique sound that, to me, is new to Christian music, or just rear. To speak to her talent, she has won two Grammy's. What really cool about Diagle is she has also became known in the mainstream world through coaching on American Idol and an appearance on the Ellen Show. I just learned that she was also a contestant on American Idol, a few times. When she was on the show as a contestant she did not find fulfillment in her music. What she learned was that when God was not the center of her singing. We all can learn that God is teaching us in and through every moment. Even in a place where people may no think God is present, the Holy Spirit is there guiding us.

Tonight, Love Like This and Look Up Child spoke to me as I reflected on our time of isolation. Even when get feel lonely, lost, frustrated, bored, and sad, God is still there loving us. When we fade away from God, stop praising God and praying to God, or question God, God comes to find use, God finds ways to break the silence, and God helps us search for answers. Sometimes our loneliness becomes so overwhelming we forget about this love from God that is always with us or our depression makes us think we do not deserve God's love. But somehow God finds a way to remind us of this love that is given freely. God tells us that God is in control and that we need to do all we can to keep looking up. It can be tough during these times of social distance but it helps us to live in each moment, find peace and hope when we start to question.

Love Like This

When I am a wasteland,

You are the water When I am the winter,

You are the fire that burns

When I am a long night You are the sunrise When I am a desert You are the river that turns To find me

What have I done to deserve love like this?

Your voice like a whisper Breaking the silence You say there's a treasure You'll look 'til You find it You search to find m

What have I done to deserve love like this? I cannot earn what You so freely give

Look Up Child

Where are You now

When darkness seems to win

Where are You now

When the world is crumbling

I hear You say

Look up child

Where are You now

When all I feel is doubt

Where are You now

When I can't figure it out

I hear You say

Look up child


You're not threatened by the war

You're not shaken by the storm

I know You're in control

Even in our suffering

Even when it can't be seen

I know You're in control

I hear You say

Look up child
