Ok. Yes. This song is embedded in a rather dated animated children’s movie.
Ok. Yes. It may be melodramatic and has a key change in the middle.
But, sometimes truth emerges from surprising places.
So, hit PLAY. I want you to listen to this song loudly, with headphones if possible, and hear it. In Joseph’s story, hear that God’s love is deep enough to bring freedom … even in a prison cell. In spite of your desperate efforts, failed plans, or hopelessness, hear God’s unconditional love right where you are, no matter your circumstance, no matter what’s in your heart. He is stronger and wiser than your pride, shame, false gods, and broken cisterns. At the bottom, at the point where you have finally given up, He is the only one who is able to save you and lead you out.
He knows better. I believe this.
May you find something profoundly and eternally hopeful in the middle of a cartoon.
“You Know Better Than I” sung by David Campbell, in “Joseph, King of Dreams“
