How Love Changes One: Ronnie Milsap’s “What a Difference You’ve Made in My Life”

Ronnie Milsap + What A Difference You've Made In My Life
by

Written by Archie Jordan, the song “What a Difference You’ve Made in My Life” has been popularized by two artists, Amy Grant and Ronnie Milsap. However, the latter has made the song more famous as it peaked at the top spot of the charts.

Amy Grant first released the song on her debut album and became widely known as it sold in Christian bookstores and other outlets. However, Ronnie Milsap’s version of “What a Difference You’ve Made in My Life” became more popular, reaching the No. 1 spot on the US Billboard Hot Country Singles chart and the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart.

Meaning Behind the Song

Released in 1977 along with other songs of Ronnie Milsap, such as “It Was Almost Like a Song” and “Here in Love,” the country singer’s version and his vocals in “What a Difference You’ve Made in My Life” blends well with the accompaniment, soothing the aching soul.

The song simply explains the profound impact one can make in another person’s life. Along the lines of the song are the implications that one can heal a broken heart, become the light that one needs to navigate through the roughness of life, and be able to know how to love.

Ronnie Milsap’s “What a Difference You’ve Made in My Life” serves as a reminder of how the power of love and kindness can change a person eventually. In this life where almost everything seems difficult, an act of love and compassion can significantly change one’s mood, regardless of whether you’re in a romantic relationship, just being with your family or friends, and even with people you think are struggling with something.

So, with these things said, you can listen to Ronnie Milsap’s version by clicking on the video below.
