All I can say is I'm still trying. After a freak accident, a sick singer, 2 failed recording attempts, and several sleepless nights, I'm still working to get "The Star Still Shines" out there. I'm not a person who thinks everything happens for a reason, or that all opposition comes from the devil. But I'm beginning to wonder what's going on.
I feel like this message is so important, and so needed, and I'm not giving up.
On that silent night so long ago, the angel had a message for the shepherds: "Fear not. For behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy. For unto you is born this day, in the City of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord."
And despite how much our world has changed, or how difficult our own personal journey, Jesus Christ is still our Savior. Wise men still seek Him, and they still find great joy in the knowledge that He lives. We can look elsewhere for peace and hope, but we will never find it.
From the song:
"Now the lights we hang obscure the sky / The clamor stills the song.
We miss the calm and quiet nights / Filled with wondering awe.
And all the while, the risen Lord / Freely gives us so much more.
The peace on earth we're looking for has been here all along.
If we seek the light, when peace is hard to find,
He'll send us silent nights,
And touch our ears so we can hear an angel voice.
And in the darkest times,
He will lift our eyes to see the star
Check back with me in a few days. Maybe Wednesday. And keep your fingers crossed!
