Today’s song comes from a former contestant on American Idol. Holly Marie Wilson used season 12 as her coming out party using the stage name of Hollyn. Like yesterday’s artist, I discovered Hollyn while listening to an Electronic Dance mix on You Tube. Hollyn was featured in a couple of the songs in this montage. One of those is Alone which has a couple of versions you can chose from.
Casting the [c]whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, [d]once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you [e]watchfully. 8 Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [[f]in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour, 1 Peter 5:7-8.
The lyrics of Alone point to how sin separates Christians from God. When right and wrong becomes clouded by a sea of gray, human beings tend to dabble with temporary pleasures. When the ecstasy of sin fades away, guilt and shame often result in loneliness. If you ever find yourself with a similar feeling, follow the advice of James 5:16 so that you can be reunited with the Lord, basketing in God’s grace.
