The older I get, the more I reflect on the past. Is that part of the aging process?
Recently I heard a song that was popular when I was young. I don’t know all the words to the song, so I’m not talking about the meaning of the song necessarily, but there was a line in the song that resonated with me. The song lyric has become more than a catchy tune…it’s proven to have some insight into my life. I’m sure this is true of many secular songs.
Here are three that quickly come to mind:
You can’t always get what you want – Should have listened to the Rolling Stones when I had a chance I guess, but I’m learning that life doesn’t always turn out as expected. This makes lining my heart’s desires up with God’s desires more important, because His desires win!
Your cheating heart will tell on you – How many times have I asked a guy, “Are you telling your wife the whole truth?”, because I know that eventually, the truth will come out. It always does and it is always received worse when it isn’t voluntarily confessed.”
Every rose has its thorns – If it looks to good to be true, it probably is…the only exception I’ve learned is grace…
Can you think of any other secular songs whose lyrics have proven true in your life?
