Brave new world

Was a little emotional when I got home on Sunday... it's been a crazy-wonderful, mountain-climbing 40+ days... I had this amazing vision of the future in church this morning and was chock full of hope but events of the day, weariness and pressure got me all weepy and was asking God, now that's over and done with, what's next? Out of nowhere this song popped in my head and I knew that Holy Spirit was singing to me. Hadn't heard it in forever and was not feeling sing-songey in the least but the lyrics so illuminated that moment of self-doubt and confusion. I just love how He speaks to us in ways that delight our hearts.

I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we're only dreaming

A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I'm way up here
It's crystal clear
That now I'm in a whole new world with you

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world
(Don't you dare close your eyes)
A hundred thousand things to see
(Hold your breath - it gets better)
I'm like a shooting star
I've come so far
I can't go back to where I used to be

A whole new world
(Every turn a surprise)
With new horizons to pursue
(Every moment red-letter)
I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That's where we'll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me
