The film How Starbucks Saved My Life is about a former CEO who used his time working at Starbucks to reprioritize his life. Today’s song comes from the duo Joshua Havens and Matt Fuqua who worked together in a Starbucks coffee shop in Mesquite, Texas. Following positive feedback from customers that they played for, Joshua and Matt formed the Afters.
For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior, 4 Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth, 1 Timothy 2:3-4.
Whether you’re a Christian or not, everyone needs a pick me up at some point in their lives. The lyrics of Lift Me Up by the Afters is based upon a couple passages in the Bible like Matthew 11:28-30. Jesus calls all who are burdened, tired and weary to come to God to lay down your burdens. This is accomplished spiritually through prayer as you let go and let God lift you up.
