For years, whenever I've been in a funk, discouraged, or stuck in my head believing lies— God has continually used music—full of truth—to meet me where I am and redirect my heart.
It's funny, there have been times my heels have been dug in hard, and there's nothing in me that want's to trust the Lord or look to Him— and its like wa-baam. I hear a song, truth is sung over me—and I straight up can't avoid His kind, gentle draw back to Himself. It happens all. the. time.
I re-remember The Gospel I've forgotten, and that Jesus is near and is good.
EVEN if it doesn't always seem like it in that moment—somehow when I hear truth, I start believing truth—and slowly start trusting Jesus in whatever junk I'm in.
So when the walls of our house feel like they're caving in, I'm getting stuck in my head over something, and the kids (and I) are getting bratty—we crank that music on, truth is sung over us, and I swear our home is different.
I hope they are so encouraging to you where you are!
