Like millions of others around the world, I listened and was teary-eyed watching a video this week. It's a lesson God has been showing all along in His Word -- and that is, how wrong snap impressions can be.
Meet Susan Boyle, an unlikely global singing sensation. Everybody laughed at her when she joined a top singing contest in UK and faced the crowds. It's a common mentality of culture who "judges by appearances." In a world of superficiality, people tend to judge a book by its cover. She's 48, single (never dated or had been kissed!),and unemployed who took care of her aged mother for many years till her death at age over 90. A church volunteer, she shares a flat with a cat. But now, Susan Boyle has become a global superstar!
Watch this biggest surprise you would ever have, a multi-million hit, now at youtube!
Here's the lyrics of "I Dreamed a Dream" from musical Les Miserables sang by Susan Boyle:
I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving
Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted
But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they turn your hope apart
As they turn your dreams to shame
And still I dream he’d come to me
That we would live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather
I had a dream my life would be
So different from the hell I’m living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed."
Amazing, a wake up call for all of us. Do you have a dream? Everything is possible... no matter how things look!
