Believe

Love this song by Josh Groban...


I heard it last night on the radio on the way home from work... and it got me thinking (besides giving me the chills..in good way). It is part if the movie The Polar Express, which of course is about simply believing in Santa and the magic of the season.

But isn't it in a way about a simple belief in God? Listening to the words... it just touches me in a way that is more spiritual, the reason what the Advent and Christmas season really is for... celebrating the birth of Jesus.

Here are the lyrics:

Children, sleeping.
Snow is softly falling.
Dreams are calling,
Like bells in the distance.
We were dreamers,
Not so long ago.
But one by one, we
All had to grow up.

When it seems the magic slipped away...
We find it all again on Christmas Day.

Believe in what your heart is saying,
Hear the melody that's playing.
There's no time to waste,
There so much to celebrate.
Believe in what you feel inside,
Give your dreams the wings to fly.
You have everything you need, if you just believe.

Trains move quickly
To their journey's end.
Destinations...
Are where we begin again.
Ships go sailing,
Far across the sea.
Trusting starlight,
To get where they need to be.

When it seems that we have lost our way...
We find ourselves again on Christmas Day.

Believe in what your heart is saying,
Hear the melody that's playing
There's no time to waste,
There so much to celebrate.
Believe in what you feel inside,
And give your dreams the wings to fly.
You have everything you need, if you just Believe.

If you just believe.
If you just believe.

I love the line "Destinations...are where we begin again." To me that symbolizes being saved...placing your absolute trust in God to lead you where you need to be. And of course this line "You have everything you need, if you just Believe."

Isn't that the truth.....
