Something 'Bout Love

I am a HUGE David Archuleta fan.  Laugh all you want, but I absolutely love his music.  Plus, try and find one other pop singer who is living for the Lord; you won't find it very often.  David (yep, we're on a first name basis, haha) is about to come out with a new album and just released the first single, "Something 'Bout Love".  I've been reflecting on the song a lot recently and really thinking about the lyrics.  

Every night it's all the same
You're frozen by the phone
You wait, something's changed
You blame yourself every day
You'd do it again
Every night

There's something 'bout love
That breaks your heart
Whoa oh oh oh
It sets you free

There's something 'bout love
That tears you up
Whoa oh oh oh
You still believe
When the world falls down like the rain
It'll bring you to your knees
There's something 'bout love that breaks your heart
Whoa oh oh oh...
But don't give up
There's something 'bout love

When you were young
Scared of the night
Waiting for love to come along
And make it right
Your day will come, the past is gone
So take your time
And live and let live

There's something 'bout love
That breaks your heart
Whoa oh oh oh
It sets you free

There's something 'bout love
That tears you up
Whoa oh oh oh
You still believe
When the world falls down like the rain
It'll bring you to your knees

There's something 'bout love that breaks your heart
Whoa oh oh oh...
But don't give up
There's something 'bout love

Don't fight
Don't hide
Those stars in your eyes (in your eyes)
Let em' shine tonight
Let em' shine tonight

Hang on
Hang in
For the ride of your life
It's gonna be alright
Hold on tight

(There's something 'bout love
That breaks your heart
Whoa oh oh oh)

There's something 'bout love
That breaks your heart
Whoa oh oh oh
It sets you free

There's something 'bout love
That tears you up
Whoa oh oh oh
You still believe
When the world falls down like the rain
It'll bring you to your knees (to your knees)
There's something 'bout love that breaks your heart
Whoa oh oh oh...
But don't give up
There's something 'bout love

Whoa oh oh oh..
Sets you free
There's something bout love
That tears you up
Whoa oh oh oh
You still believe
When the world falls down like the rain

I know the first thing that comes to mind is a guy/girl relationship and all the ups and downs that go with it.  But then I thought, "This kind of relationship about "love" is exactly like roller coaster we experience with the love of Christ."  I know I feel like my heart breaks under the love of Christ and I'm often brought to tears due to His overwhelming loved for ME.  Love is mentioned in the Bible SO MANY times.  I'd love to go through and underline every time it is written.  The truth is that the love of God does set us free and we can always believe that love "when the world falls down like rain."  I challenge you to really listen to the lyrics (even of secular music).  You never know what truth you might find through it.  

YOU are Beautifully and Wonderfully Made.

Love,

Ky

Oh!  If you've read my previous blogs, you'll rejoice with me when I tell you that I RAN 6 MILES YESTERDAY!!  Another great milestone in my recovery :)  God is good.
