Jess Glynne – Thursday
The other day I heard this song, and thought, wow that’s very honest!

Social Media has been around for a long time. And it has sucked most of us in.
The negative side of it is that people feel ugly or not good enough, and through it we live in this world of comparing ourselves. Not content with who we are.

Jess Glynne offers heartfelt lyrics:

“Don’t wanna wake up and feel insecure
I wanna sing, I wanna dance
I wanna feel love inside my hands again
I just wanna feel beautiful”

Do you feel the same?
Read this reminder in Psalm 139:14 (
You ARE beautiful. God made you that way.



“Everybody says, “Say something that says something” I don’t wanna get caught, up in the rhythm of it. But I can’t help myself, no, I can’t help myself” Justin Timberlake: Say Something (

Through social media, it’s easy to say lots of stuff in the heat of the moment. But do all those words honour Jesus? In Ephesians 4:29 ( it says “Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps, each word a gift”.

“Sometimes,the greatest way to saying something is to say nothing at all.”



Life can often feel blah/hopeless/yuk/depressing and one asks, “God, where are you?!?”

Sometimes all we need is a perspective change. “Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christthat’s where the action is. See things fromhisperspective.” (Colossians 3:2 –

“I see You in everything, all day, And every beat of my heart keeps reminding me, I see You in every little thing, all day.” Watch Toby Mac’s Everything ( and ask God to show you the world through His eyes today.



This song debuted in 2016. It’s still on the UK Top 40 in 2019. Over 2.4 billion views to date. It must be a brilliant, profound song – right? Have a quick listen and decide:

Sorry about that ear-worm. Hope it’s not stuck in your brain!
Instead of listening to meaningless words, let’s focus on brilliant, profound life-giving words.

“Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another – showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.” (2 Timothy 3:17 –
