'Every Good Thing' by The Afters

Dave's Take

Not long ago I was enjoying date night with Ava at one of our favorite restaurants and without warning I felt a profoundly deep sense of joy and contentment.  Don’t get me wrong, I love every minute I get to spend with my wife, but this feeling transcended the normal.  

I’m convinced God was impressing on me that life is fleeting.  It was almost (bear with me for a moment) as if I saw my life well into the future wishing I could go back and enjoy this sweet season again…and then being able to do just that. 

My emotional response was to drink in the moment right then and there.  My spiritual response was intense gratitude to God.   I want more of those moments.   This song by The Afters is a reminder to open our eyes and hearts to the countless blessings God gives us in the normalcy of each day. 

It’s a reminder those moments are always within our reach.

"Every Good Thing" Lyrics
 
I tend to be busier than I should be
And I tend to think that time is gonna wait for me
Sometimes I forget and take for granted
That it's a beautiful life we live
I don't wanna miss the moments like this
This is a beautiful life You give

You're the reason for every good thing, every heartbeat
Every day we get to breathe
You're the reason for anything that lasts, every second chance
Every laugh, life is so sweet
You're the reason for every good thing, every good thing
Every good thing, every good thing.

There will be days that give me more than I can take
But I know that You always make beauty from my heartache
Don't wanna forget or take for granted
That it's a beautiful life we live
I'm not gonna miss the moments like this
This is a beautiful life You give

You're the reason for every good thing, every heartbeat
Every day we get to breathe
You're the reason for anything that lasts, every second chance
Every laugh, life is so sweet
You're the reason for every good thing, every good thing
Every good thing, every good thing.

It's our family, it's our friends
It's the feeling that I get when I see my children smile
You're the reason for this life, everything we love
It's You alive in us
You're alive in us

You're the reason for every good thing, every heartbeat
Every day we get to breathe
You're the reason for anything that lasts, every second chance
Every laugh, life is so sweet
You're the reason for every good thing, every good thing
Every good thing, every good thing.

You are, You are here in every moment,
And I know that You're every good thing
You are, You are here in every moment,
And I know that You're the reason for
Every good thing, every good thing.
