Not the End

daytonsunset

Have you ever found yourself driving to a destination when a song–in your collection or on the radio–hits you with an intensity that, because it hasn’t ended when you reach your destination, you stay in the car to hear it end? There you sit, soaking the sound, the lyrics, the feeling in.

Gungor’s “This is Not the End” was that song for me today.  It breathes hope. Not the hope of the determined optimist, but Resurrection hope.  The hope of knowing that the joyous turn after Jesus’ death continues today and into eternity.  Our worst days are not the end. Injustice in our lives and around the world is not the end. This life itself is not the end for those who believe in the Resurrection and the fullness of life therein.

What lies ahead is joy.

This is Not the End

[audio http://grooveshark.com/s/This+Is+Not+The+End/4boR2W?src=5]

This is not the end
This is not the end of this
We will open our eyes wide, wider

This is not our last
This is not our last breath
We will open our mouths wide, wider

And you know you’ll be alright
Oh and you know you’ll be alright

This is not the end
This is not the end of us
We will shine like the stars bright, brighter
