Music has a way of touching our hearts that words alone can’t seem to manage, at least they do for me.
I often turn to music to help set, left or express a particular mood or emotion. Whether it be a touch of Michael Buble at the end of a busy week or some up-tempo pop song to bring energy and fun into the house; music can transform our thoughts and our emotions.
Tonight it was a simple line or two in a worship song that managed to break through the thoughts and bring both release and peace where I had been struggling all day. The words were nothing new but, somehow combined wih the right melody, they were able to speak straight to my heart in a way I needed to hear.
Many of us have a favourite song or two that we turn to at certain times and I am sure that many of us have shared my experience of a special song that has helped us express what we have been unable too on our own or with mere words.
It would be great if you would leave comments on your special helpful songs, maybe your favourite will help encourage someone else today.
