I didn’t realize it before

… but this is actually a really sad song. If you never watched the OC, then you might not be familiar. It’s the series finale song. The chorus:

“Oh, it’s time to let go of everything we used to know
Ideas that strengthen who we’ve been
It’s time to cut ties that won’t ever free our minds
From the chains and shackles that they’re in”

In reality, I realized these past few days that as much pain and suffering as we go through in life, if we really put our faith and trust in God, there’s always a hope for the future. The future isn’t money, or a great job, a wife, or even a great marriage with awesome cute grand kids to give hong bao to. The future, our eternity, is in God’s hands. The world will tell you that you just have to keep moving forward to the next best thing. Faith tells us that we already have citizenship in heaven and the price has been paid.

Still a good song though. Maybe a cover coming soon.
