The last place I expected to receive spiritual inspiration is in the songs of Miley Cyrus. Love her? Hate her? She's a young pop princess, who has already achieved massive fame and a dose of scandal.
Yet, if you reinterpret the lyrics to her songs You can find a spiritual lesson: make something secular into something spiritual.
In my spiritual life, I like to coast. I think I'm fine...until I realize how far I've drifted away. Then begins the long process of getting myself back on the right path home—attending, reading, praying. Each time, I am undeserving. I mean, really, if I can't take the time to pray, why should the Listener care on His end? But I'm always welcomed back into the fold.
Spiritual change is simple: admit you need forgiveness, seek home, find love, and stumble upon truth in faith's company. That's a spiritual regimen I can vouch for. And thank you to Miley, for reminding me of this, through her music.
When I Look at You
When my world is falling apart
When there's no light to break up the dark
I look to You
When the waves
Are flooding the shore and I can't
Find my way home anymore
I look to You
When I look at You I see forgiveness
I see the truth
You love me for who I am
Like the stars, hold the moon
Right there where they belong
And I know I'm not alone.
