Since Elder...err I mean David Archuleta came home from his mission last week, it seems fitting to do a Music Monday on one of his songs.
[Random side note: I've been laughing at myself all week. All I've heard the other girls say are remarks about how they can marry him now and stuff like that, and I'm just over here with my ice cream thinking, "man, I hope he makes a new album soon. I can't wait for more music. So there you have it: My love life (or lack there of) summed up in about two sentences. :D]
Anyway, one of my favorite songs of his is Things are Gonna Get Better. I love the upbeat feel and the comforting words.
Everybody's got a time in their life
When everything hurts and nothing's right.
But you gotta walk on, yeah you gotta walk on.
Everybody's got a piece of their heart
That's been stepped on and torn apart.
But you gotta be strong, yeah you gotta walk on.
That is so true. We all have struggles and difficulties that we must face as part of this mortal journey here on earth. Even amidst all the heartache, it is so crucial that we never ever ever give up. Ever. [haha I sound like Taylor Swift.]
I'm reminded of a quote by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf:
No matter what is going on in your life or what trials may be coming your way, I hope you will always have strength to "rise up" and "dust yourself off". Things will get better as we move forward with hope in Christ.
But I know things are gonna get better,
And I know things are gonna be fine.
And I know life is gonna get better,
Standing here together
Yeah we're gonna be fine.
Give the song a listen. You'll be glad you did.
