I can honestly say I had one of the best weekends of my college days. I got to actually be at a live concert in Wichita Falls; it was an amazing experience that will forever be in my heart. Prior to the concert, I always wondered what made certain musicians stand out, and why people like me can relate to them. Matt Maher and Brandon Heath humbled themselves and shared their life stories with the audience; they explained the true meaning behind every song they sang.
What struck me the most was, I was made to appreciate the beauty of love through a song by Matt Maher, titled ‘my only love’. When Matt Maher first played this song, he did not say the exact meaning behind it; he only said he wrote it for his “only love”. When he finished writing the song, he realized that God was actually speaking to him through that song; he flipped the meaning of the song, and instead of him singing the song to his “only love”, he realized that God was actually singing the song to him. In other words, he was God’s only love. Matt Maher asked the audience to listen to the song again as if God was speaking to us; this time I saw it differently and I realized that as much as I try to find love in a person, God’s love supersedes all. I hope you enjoy this beautiful piece by the talented Matt Maher.
Have a great week. Stay positive.
