The Christian singer Colton Dixon spilled the inspiration behind his new single “Miracles” during the 28th annual Movieguide Awards in an interview with The Christian Post.
“Miracles” is Colton’s first single in nearly three years. Michael Jade and the late Busbee wrote the new track with him. Also, it’s Colton’s Atlantic Record’s debut. It was released on Jan. 24.
The “American Idol” alum attended the Movieguide Awards as a performer. And there, during his walk on the red carpet, he shared about his new album. He revealed that the album’s content centers around faith and family.
Real Miracles According To Colton Dixon
Colton told CP last month, “I think we think of miracles as these huge life altering events, right? Whereas I think that’s true, I think sometimes we forget to look at the little things in life as miracles.”
“The fact that we woke up today is a huge miracle in and of itself,” he said. “So it’s about stepping back, taking the opportunity to see the forest through the trees, and go, ‘God, you were in my life and orchestrating all these things all along the way and I’m just now realizing it, but thank you so much.’”
Stepping Away From Devices To Spend Time With God
Colton also believes that this generation needs to take time away from devices and spend more time being still and reflective.
“I’m not perfect at it, but we’ve realized that the phone can be a great thing but man, it can be a negative too,” the 28-year-old said.
He then added, “It says in God’s word that He leads me beside the still waters. I think we picture that and are like, ‘Oh, that’s so beautiful that’s so serene,’ but they’re still and it’s peaceful. Do we take the time to get away from everything?”
The musician pointed out that spending time with God will open our minds to the everyday miracles. He said it doesn’t have to be complicated.
“It doesn’t have to be this crazy retreat or whatever, it can be getting away in your bedroom, turning your phone off and just taking a moment to breathe. I think that’s so important,” Colton explained. “I think God wants to speak to us, but He’s a gentleman so He doesn’t raise His voice over all the other things that are going on in our lives.”
Colton then concluded, “I just think it’s really important just to chill out for a second, to take a step back and raise your head above the water.”
