I'm going through something that has me deeply troubled. Music is something that I've always turned to, but today it hit me more than it ever has in my life. I laid on the bed flat, quiet and still, and listened to these songs: The Old Rugged Cross Precious Lord My Jesus I Love Thee Just a Closer Walk with Thee Pass me not Oh Gentle Savior Leaning on the Everlasting Arms Jesus Cares for Me Another song that really hits is "Sing Allelu." Here is the link to it. I've yet to find anyone else that knows it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-czywU7xnM The spiritual comfort and healing that comes when one quietly soaks in the praise of God can never be overestimated. I didn't know it could get stronger than what I've experienced in the past, yet it can and did. I'd just like to encourage others to not forget that when in times of trouble, when it seems like praising God might be more of a chore, take the time to try it anyhow. You may walk away from it very, very surprised. There have been times where I just wasn't into it and it took a few songs to catch my attention, but it's extremely rare for me to listen to praise music and not break eventually and reconnect, no matter how distant I feel. Key words just end up jumping out and turning your thoughts to heaven and spiritual things and away from this world and its problems. And that is a very sweet deal.
