Happy Friday. Lately, I’ve been listening to hymns and one I have recently had on repeat is “I Need Thee Every Hour” from Joey and Rory Feek. Joey is one of my favorite voices and I could listen to her sing continually. Music has always been deep comfort for my soul, especially if I’m in a difficult season and my view seems bleak. When I’m having a hard day, Joey’s hymns are the first thing I think of. I can play her music and as I sing along and listen to the lyrics written about the Savior, my mind and heart instantly calm. I am so thankful for how the Lord ministers and binds up the wounded heart through music. It is such a gift to me, and many others.
My other favorite comfort music comes from Amy Grant. I don’t think there is one song of hers I dislike. Years ago when I had numerous surgeries I remember listening to Amy Grant songs over and over again on my cd Walkman before the iPod days. Even then, the words of timeless hymns was a balm to my young heart. I would always keep “The Collection” album by Amy on repeat.
I do not know what you are facing today but I want to leave you with the hymn, I Need Thee Every Hour.” Take some time to stop whatever you are doing and listen to the words and allow God to bring rest to your soul. My prayer is that it will encourage you like it has me this week.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Last fall, I started a weekly series on Nehemiah, but due to health issues failed to finish it. Although, I plan to start again next week so stay tuned for that.
Thanks again for all the continued prayers for me and my family. They mean the world to us and we are so thankful for you!
