Do you ever hear a song and you just keep hitting repeat, repeat, repeat?
The first time you hear it you say, "MAN!! That's a good song!" Then the second time you hear it, "MAN! That song is really good!" as a tear wells up in your eye. Then the third time, "Speak to me Lord!" as the tears accumulate and you don't blink because they will fall to the floor. Then the fourth time you just have to pause for a moment and take it all in; the smells, the hurt, the laughter, the memories, the feeling, the people, the beauty, the heart leaping from your chest feelings.
This happens to me when I find a song- usually a 'sad/motivating/moving' song. What song is it for me right now? "In Better Hands" by Natalie Grant. I heard this song a while back- when the music video was released. I watched the video, cried like a baby then watched it again.
Now I'm listening to it over and over and over until I begin to feel I sound like Natalie. (Not possible)
For you 'music people' out there, I think you're feeling me now.
I once heard a preacher say, "There are 7 pathways to God. Each one of us has a different path that we take to feel God."
This was a life changing sermon. I am going to do my best to remember all 7.
I can't remember the others. Sorry. I remembered the two I was and the two I am not-at the time. I have now been able to let God meet me on the path of sermons-thanks to Craig.
I have this God given ability to hear a song and let it move me. I can to travel back in time to the moment a certain song impacting me. I can remember smells, people, feelings, what I was doing, what I was thinking. I can even remember songs that I wasn't listening to but that my Dad was listening to and the moments comes back to me.
I heart music.
