Day 49: This

I have no idea how this song got to my iPod, but I’m sure glad that it did.

I instantly fell in love with this song when I first heard it.  It’s Darius Rucker’s “This“.  And, it’s another country music (surprise, surprise).

The message of this song is that you never know what the future holds.  You can be surprised with how amazingly unpredictable life it.  This song has one line that both surprised and intrigued me.  In the chorus, the lyrics went: Thank God for all I missed, cause it led me here to this.  How many people can actually say something like that and mean it?  I’m pretty sure not a lot.  Most people regret missing something and they think that they can’t miss out on anything–good or bad.  I mean, that has to be one reason why people mostly jump in whatever is in the popular bandwagon, right?

But, you know what got me thinking in this song?  It’s the thought that life moves on, and sometimes it takes a direction where we think that our life sucks that we just wanna give up on it all.  But then, when we persevere, when we take one more step forward instead of giving up, we get to see something better than what we had planned.  Let’s face it, sometimes what we have planned for ourselves isn’t as great as what God has planned for us.  That’s why I think we should have more faith and trust in God and in the direction he steers our lives into.

We never know what the future holds.  No one can read our future for us.  Our future is something we have to write for ourselves, it’s something we have to live through and something we have to make.

Below are the lyrics to this beautiful, beautiful song.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

Got a baby girl sleeping in my bedroom
And her mama laughing in my arms
There’s the sound of rain on the rooftop
And the game’s about to start

I don’t really know how I got here
But I’m sure glad that I did
And it’s crazy to think that one little thing
Could’ve changed all of it

Maybe it didn’t turn out like I planned
Maybe that’s why I’m such, such a lucky man

For every stoplight I didn’t make
Every chance I did or I didn’t take
All the nights I went too far
All the girls that broke my heart
All the doors that I had to close
All the things I knew but I didn’t know
Thank God for all I missed
Cause it led me here to
This

Like the girl that I loved in high school
Who said she could do better
Or that college I wanted to go to
‘Til I got that letter

All the fights and the tears and the heartache
I thought I’d never get through
And the moment I almost gave up
All lead me here to you

I didn’t understand it way back when
But sitting here right now it all makes perfect sense

For every stoplight I didn’t make
Every chance I did or I didn’t take
All the nights I went too far
All the girls that broke my heart
All the doors that I had to close
All the things I knew but I didn’t know
Thank God for all I missed
Cause it led me here to
This

How I cried when my mama passed away
But now I’ve got an angel looking out for me today
So nothing’s a mistake

For every stoplight I didn’t make
Every chance I did or I didn’t take
All the nights I went too far
All the girls that broke my heart
All the doors that I had to close
All the things I knew but I didn’t know
Thank God for all I missed
Cause it led me here to
This

It led me here to
This


There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling".
