Music and the Gospel: “Good Vibes,” Chris Janson

The holidays pull us in many directions. Sometimes we don’t recognize the people most important to us—those who love us, shelter us, feed us—until something forces us to slow down. Waiting can give us time to remember what and who we count on and how fortunate we really are. Chris Janson’s song “Good Vibes” is about slowing down and taking stock of all we have to be thankful for. It’s about appreciating the good things we have in our lives.

Key Lyrics: I’m gettin’ them good vibes / I’m livin’ this good life / I’m breathin’ on God’s time / And I ain’t gonna waste one breath / I’m soakin’ it all up / I got me a full cup / And there ain’t nothin’ gonna spill it / Nothin’ gonna kill it / Wavin’ them worries goodbye / I’m feelin’ them good vibes

Questions: When have you been forced to slow down or wait for something?  How did waiting affect you?  What insights into yourself or the situation did you experience? What are you thankful for this Advent season?
