Sometimes I am amazed at how many of my friends never listen to Christian music. And I get it, kind of. A lot of Christian music just isn't as good as mainstream pop and rock. But Christian music has come a long way. A loooooong way. I am always trying to find new Christian artists that I enjoy and now think my kids will like also. I want Aubrey to have Christian guy artists who he thinks are cool, and I want Mallory to have Christian ladies who are hip and fun and she thinks are cool too. So it was in this journey that I found Britt Nicole. I have liked several of her songs for a couple of years, but her Gold album is just that. Gold. Mallory and I love to listen to fun, happy songs like those of Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, etc., but there aren't many out there that are appropriate for us. I was reminded of that last night seeing pictures of the performers at the Grammys. Yikes! That being said, Britt Nicole fits the bill. It isn't often that I buy an entire album anymore. I bought this entire album. We love to listen to it together, and I love it when I'm home alone and can sing as loud as I like!
This song hits home for me, as I am sure it will for many of you. Growing up, we all had ideas of what our lives would be like. Young and idealistic, we dreamed amazing dreams. Sometimes life turns out like our dreams, but more often than not, it doesn't. It doesn't mean our lives are bad, but there are definitely seasons that we didn't sign up for. This song reminds us that we are still that girl who dreamed God sized dreams. Right now I'm doing a study on the book of Luke and today we were challenged to dream God sized dreams. What would they look like? You're still that girl who can change the world. It's what I want my Mallory to know. No matter what happens, our God sized dreams can always come true if we believe and obey and stay close to our Savior. So my sweet friends, your story's not over! You're still that girl!
