Ladies and gentlemen, we have another hit from rapper Yawdy Quan, who is joined by fellow artist Shado Vijon in his new track ‘Grateful’. If the title doesn’t give a hint to what you can expect from this song, I can guarantee you that giving it a listen will encourage you to see the reasons you can give Him thanks today.
When asked about the inspiration behind the song, Yawdy Quan had to say, ‘There’s so much things around us to be discouraged about but the true joy of life is found in counting all the blessings the Lord has truly granted us.’
How true is that? We’re left each day with the choice to count all the things in life that don’t seem to be working out and drive us to despair, or choosing to be thankful in the Lord for who He is, what He has done and what He continues to do. This shift in what we choose is what wins out at the end of the day.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says that we should ‘Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus’. I love that it says give thanks in all circumstances. That means whether sunny or cloudy, whether joyful or sorrowful, whether healthy or ill. Whatever place we find ourselves in today, we can give thanks to the Lord for His goodness and mercy.
Similarly, Shado Vijion expanded on what inspired him during the making of this track, ‘The inspiration towards my verse is an expression of gratitude towards Jesus for providing, protecting, and sustaining me in various aspects of my life. God is always with me and I walk in confidence knowing that He’s always by my side in any and every situation and I’m truly grateful for that.
I couldn’t have said it better! We will face so many storms in life, highs and lows, victories and defeats, despite the season, which is constantly changing, we can have the sure and secure anchor, Christ Himself, who walks with us through all of it. He certainly is worthy of our thanksgiving and praise!
