Sunshine Feel Good

by Paul Selden
Ah Snoop Dogg (also known as Snoop Doggy Dogg, Bigg Snoop Dogg, Uncle Snoop, Snoopzilla, DJ Snoopadelic, Doggfather, Coach Snoop, and Snoop Lion), what an interesting artist.  As mentioned earlier this week, the Lord uses many different kinds of people to spread his gospel, but let’s look at a specific song that Snoop has used for this purpose.  One song off his new album is called “Sunshine Feel Good”.  It goes like this:
It’s just another, just another day that the lord has
It was no goodness of my own
It was you and you alone
You deserve all the glory
This song reminds me of another verse (which is also a song): Psalm 118:24
“This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it”
Essentially, this song highlights the joy of life that we can experience because of God’s wondrous love for us.  I find it so important that Snoop says “It was no goodness of my own” which conveys the nature of Jesus’s love for us.  Jesus loves us before we could have ever loved him, continues to love us each and every day, and will always love us no matter what we do or how far we stray from him.  I like to think that Snoop realizes that, because even with an interesting past, there is always time to embrace Christ and let him into your life and praise God in this way (as Snoop says “You deserve all the glory”).  That being said, it is another day that the lord has made, so let us rejoice and be glad in it.
