After spending five consecutive weeks on Billboard’s Top Singles Sales chart right above Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland, “American Idol” runner-up MANDISA is no stranger to radio or mainstream press with debut single “Only the World” from her Sparrow Records debut, True Beauty. She recently penned the story behind the hit for CCM readers…

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:17-18)

Ever had a bad day? Sometimes I wish that once I had received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior that my road would be paved with nothing but golden stones. But God never promised us an easy life. We live in a fallen world, so problems are inevitable. What God does promise us is that even the very worst of circumstances (war, death of a loved one, terminal disease) pale in comparison to what we are promised when we finally get to our eternal home. When I am faced with impossible circumstances, I find peace in knowing that one day I will see my Jesus face to face. Until then, I remember “it’s only the world I’m living in! ”  — MANDISA
