Moved to tears.

Have you ever been moved to tears unexpectedly? Have you ever felt the hand of God move in an instant so quickly it almost makes you drop to your knees? Have you ever had a song touch you in such a way that you’ve had to drop what you are doing to listen?

I love music. I believe it’s good for our soul. It can bring people together in ways that other things can’t. I’m pretty passionate about music. My oldest is already taking piano lessons.  I love all music genres. I love Christian, rock, heavy metal, hip-hop, R&B, country, classical and so on. Of course I don’t love every song I hear but I do like a wide variety.

It’s not uncommon for me to have the radio on all day long. I do other things while listening. I’m often inspired by what I hear. My boys come running when they hear one they love so we stop what we are doing and dance! My mood can be changed in an instant by hearing a favorite tune.  (Of course with the kiddos around I monitor what I’m listening to.)

Last week this song came on and it literally made me stop in my tracks. First, I was in shock that it’s such a powerful song on mainstream radio.  I had to look it up because I wanted to hear it again immediately.  Not only is she one of my favorite artists and mentions my hometown in the song – it was exactly what I needed.

The Lord was reminding me that I can’t do it all on my own. I was taking on so much that I felt I was being dragged down by it all. The things that mattered to me most were being pushed aside.  It helped me be reminded I can cast my cares on Him. 

1 Peter 5:7  Cast all your care upon him; for he careth for you.  (KJV)

By the time the song was over I was in tears.  So powerful, so true.

I chose a version without the video so you can close your eyes & listen.  Is it more than just a song to you?  Is it what you need to hear? 

Was it what you needed?  Were you moved to tears?

    Don’t you just love it when Jesus speaks to you through music!?

    I’m so glad that you left a comment for me on my blog–I couldn’t find your url anywhere on your FB page, so I didn’t know where to go to find your blog! (And yes, Kayse is awesome! We became neighbors nearly a year ago, and I’m so thankful for the impact she has had on my life!)

    Blessings!

    • Thanks Bethany! I’ll double-check to be sure it’s on there. Aww…that’s so great. I’m way on the other side of the country but I feel like God led me to her bible study so I could have another ‘sister’ He is awesome!
