I’m in love with you!Most Beautiful – Maverick City Music
I am watching this Korean Drama: Hello My Twenties about five girls sharing a house and how they deal with life, basically. Yes, I watch Korean drama. Yes, I enjoy them. Moving on.
In the drama, a girl was talking about how breaking up with a partner meant you weren’t allowed to care for the person anymore, or worry or share joy or sorrow with them anymore. You also had to let go of whatever future you imagined with them and start embracing new possibilities. It hurts, basically.
I remember the first time I liked a boy (who liked me back!) I really thought I’d found The One. Come to think of it, we weren’t even dating. In today’s culture, we’d say we were ‘talking’ exclusively. Or something like that. We made quite a number of plans. We… were serious about each other. I didn’t think I would ever meet anyone and vibe with them like I did with him. Technically, I still haven’t met anyone like that. I think that’s even better.
I have formed stronger bonds with other people beyond cute texts and shallow conversations. I’ve made solid friendships with people on whose shoulders I have *literally* shed a couple of tears (by accident if I might add. I didn’t think my eyes would sell me out in broad daylight. sigh.) I have gone on dates with some of the nicest people I’ve met in my life and some of the… weirdest people too.
When I sing to God, “No one can take your place”, I am not just saying it because it sounds deep or because it’s part of the song. I literally mean that no one can fill his spot in my life. It’s been tried and tested. He’s on a whole other level!
I think there’s a post about he’s been my Confidant since Day One. I mean, i don’t think I can ever accord *anyone* that level of trust and openness He and I share. And that’s just one of the many hats he wears in my life. Like…
In case you haven’t noticed, I have a very special place in my heart for music [and movies]. Now, most often, when I hear a song, I can tell (almost immediately) that I like the song. Other times, it takes a couple of times before it hits me. So yeah… I’ve been listening to Most Beautiful by Maverick City Music for a while now (since I posted that I was listening to To You).
Yesterday, while listening, I started thinking about why they would say God is most beautiful. Like, of all the attributes, why beautiful???
I have never called God beautiful. I don’t really know why, but I can go on a limb and say that it is because I never actually considered the fact that God is beautiful. That would kind of imply that I’ve seen him before. Then it dawned on me; though I haven’t *seen* God before… I see him all the time. Like every time I see someone and think, “Oh, that’s a beautiful person!” or “This person has a beautiful heart/soul/personality”. All these are compliments to God. Like, he is beautiful. We are created in his image. So the beauty we see in others… It’s. All. Him.
So now, when I am singing, I am not saying a bunch of words that ‘sound nice’, I am singing accolades to my awesome father who has exquisite taste and style and is Beauty himself.
He is Most Beautiful.
