On perfect, sunroof hair don’t care days ~ you take the long, backroad way to any destination. Or is that just me? I do it all the time since COVID, and I usually ride with music, loud music! A couple days ago, this song by Terrian, came on. It was called Let Love Lead.
My first thought was that it was written for such a time as this. Except, it wasn’t. It released on February 14, 2020 ~ what an appropriate release date though!
When I first heard it, I thought of current crappy state of affairs with a year full of COVID and now an election that hasn’t been officially called by anyone but the media, but it’s been claimed by the “party of love”. That’s what I’ve heard them called, saying they are fighting for the soul of the nation.
Then again, media is nothing but political theatre these days. Who knows what to actually believe? It looks like WWE in suits. They walk around and wave at people, talk smack to one another and take a couple good verbal jabs now and then. Manchildren about to fight!
Honestly, it cracks me up to imagine them actually coming to physical blows. The thought of two ‘presidential’ candidates duking it out cracks me up. Also, it would show about as much class as the politicians have shown themselves.
But when I got to this keyboard to write this song mention, I listened to it again, read a little about the artist and changed my thoughts a little. Instead of worry and fretting about who will win, when it will be decided and over ~ I’ve decided to just try and “Let Love Lead”. Period. Full Stop.
Whomever ends up in the White House, I pray that love will lead. I pray that love would come first in their actions all day. I pray that love would be the driving factor for every policy. I pray that leading with love would become the new ‘in’ thing.
We somehow let hate become so ordinary ~ what a deplorable thing.
The new inhabitants of the Oval Office will have the world stage to show love, and I am praying that it’s the biblical kind of love. I hope that every good deed that flows out of the White House will be returned in kind and any bad would be repaid in multiples.
Leading with love means being of service and helping others up and the artist, Terrian does just that.
At a young age, she has a ministry through her music and lends her time and talents to AngelStreet Memphis, an organization that supports young women to rise up, lift their voices and lead throughout the city. It seems through AngelStreet is where she truly discovered her gift.
In your daily life, in your community, in the schools, churches and business worldwide, I just pray for people to let love lead. Especially, our lawfully elected ‘leaders’.
