Welcome to Existence

Jayesslee - Dare You To Move by Switchfoot (Acoustic Cover)

 I never knew what the lyrics meant. I just knew this song because it was in a famous pop-culture film ("A Walk To Remember"). But I just read the lyrics and...wow. I am completely taken back.

"Welcome to the planet, welcome to existence. Everyone's here, everybody's watching you now, everybody waits for you now. What happens next? Welcome to the fallout, welcome to resistance. The tension is here, between who you are and who you could be, between how it is and how it should be. Maybe redemption has stories to tell. Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell. Where can you run to escape from yourself? Where you gonna go? Salvation is here."

God spoke to you when you were born, and He said these words, these lyrics, to you. Maybe not these exact words, but from the moment you entered this world, He knew your life would consist of pain and trials, but that hope will always exist in it as well.

And this cover is so calming! Have a good Sunday, everyone.
