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.
Miley's Song Lyrics by John Shanks and Hillary Lindsey

"Breakfast with the Angels"
Limited as we are to our steadily aging bodies, we find it fascinating that angels can take any form that suits the message. A "classic" angel, with wings and all lighted up, perhaps with pale skin and eyes of blue flame, seems to be less often glimpsed than do angels in the guise of ordinary folks of all sorts--male or female, young or old, tall or short, any race, any dialect, any description.
