In This Is Me, James has decided to embrace who he is—his bruises and all. Now, in Tightrope, James is trusting God with his life and he realizes this journey is certainly not easy, but he isn’t giving up hope this time.
In my previous posts, I discussed the songs from The Greatest Showman and how each song portrays a part of our relationship with the Lord. I’ve reordered the songs to tell a story about a man named James growing an intimate relationship with the Lord. Click the links below to read the previous posts: A Million Dreams; Come […]
In this post, we’ll discuss the lyrics from Rewrite the Stars. In Rewrite the Stars, God is explaining that James is the apple of His eye (Psalms 17:8 NIV; Deuteronomy 32:10 NIV), but James feels he does not deserve God’s love; ultimately not accepting the freedom God has given him.
In Never Enough, James realizes this world will never be enough for him. He realizes he needs to fill himself up with more promises and truth from the Lord. He tried living a worldly life full of money, status, etc. and now he’s trying to follow God but life is still rough. Well, this song is James expressing (worshipping) to God that this world is not enough for him and he only needs God to help him get through life.
This song is about taking chances in life. When Hugh Jackman is singing, that is God saying, “Why stay in your comfort zone? Take a risk with me. If you want to live to your full potential that I have created you for, you have to step out of your comfort zone. Trust me. You won’t regret it.”
In this post, I’ll discuss Come Alive and how it represents being ‘born again’ in the Spirit.
This song is great after A Million Dreams. Let’s pretend we’re following a character. The character found out God wants to listen to our dreams and thoughts and the character has accepted this form of relationship with God, so now God is telling the character to ‘come alive’ through Him and stop living a meaningless life.
The Greatest Showman touched upon themes such as discrimination, identity, and etc.. And yes the story was inspired by P.T. Barnum and how he created the circus, but I found myself discovering a different story played out through the songs. You can read my first post about that here.
This post will discuss some of the lyrics from the song, A Million Dreams. In A Million Dreams,God is saying, “Bring me along with you on your journey and tell me about these dreams and desires that you have.”
I’m in love with the movie, The Greatest Showman. Anyone who knows me knows this! I sing at least one song a day, randomly, belting out the lyrics while I do my mundane tasks and chores. I’ll even listen to the whole album over…and over…again.
In this post, I will give a brief summary of what each song means if it was a Christian song.
