The latest single from Big Daddy Weave can now be heard on 89.5 KTSY!
“Heaven Changes Everything” was inspired as lead singer Mike Weaver pondered eternity after facing the loss of his parents and his brother, Jay Weaver, the bassist in the band. This song celebrates the comfort and purpose that comes with the hope of eternity, especially during life’s challenges. It reminds me that the pain and trials we experience in this life have purpose because God is with us in the midst of them and He can work good from them in this life. But it also reminds me that there’s meaning in pain, loss, and trial because we know one day Jesus will end those things for good and those who believe in Jesus will be with Him forever.
It’s clear the writers drew inspiration from Bible passages like Romans 5:3-5, Romans 8:18-40, John 14:3, and Revelation 21:1-7. So, when these lyrics get stuck in your head, God’s truth is also in your heart. This song encourages us to hold onto this hope as a source of strength and perseverance. And the lyrics are even more impactful because they come from not only from Scripture, but Mike Weaver’s testimony of clinging to the promises of God’s Word in His own life.
I’m thankful that God comforts us in our pain and brings purpose to our pain, in this life and in eternity.
I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” (Revelation 21:3-4 NLT)
