Media Monday: Here for a Reason!

Introducing Media Mondays! Where we will take a piece of media, whether it be a movie, song, or book that discusses a theme or topic relating back to the Defying Shadows Message! If you have any suggestions for a future Media Monday, please share your thoughts with us either on our Facebook page, or on the Defying Shadows tab on our blog! Thanks!


For our first Media Monday, I thought I would share the song by Ashes Remain called “Here for a reason.” See what Josh, the singer of this song, says is the story behind this song.


This song perfectly captures the message that Defying Shadows wants you to know and believe. It says,

“You’re not forgotten
You’re not alone
You think you’re worthless, but you’re worth it
And He calls you His own
Made in His image
You were made for more
You think there is no plan, that it’s all by chance
But don’t believe that anymore

If you spent your days just getting by
When you feel useless, He can use you
And show you what it means to be alive

Every day is a gift from above
Don’t throw it away
When it feels like to much
He’ll be there

Every time that you wake up breathing
Every night when you close your eyes
Every day that your heart keeps beating
There’s purpose for your life
So don’t give up
Don’t lay down
Just hold on
Don’t quit now
Every breath that you take has meaning
You are here for a reason.”

Remember this message this week. Listen to this song as many times as you need to so you can start to believe it yourself. Know that no matter what your life looks like or how lost you seem to feel you are here for a reason.
