The radio was playing while I was filling the dishwasher and Molly was playing with a book. I didn't know what station I was listening to, when I heard a female voice singing about a hospital bed. Molly started talking to me while I teared up. I don't want to hear songs that cause grief to emerge, but I was straining to hear the words. I heard some other lines about this world not being home and seeing God. Molly was still chattering away while I cried. The song ended, and I realized it was a country station. I switched to a Christian station to continue my music therapy.
I grieve the most when I'm listening to music. It is heart-wrenching and comforting at the same time. I'm sure you can relate. I worship God and fully experience pain and healing together. Then I heard "Your Grace is Enough" by Chris Tomlin. It reminded me of 2 Corinthians 12:9,10: My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness... For when I am weak, then I am strong. I have to hit the lowest of lows in order to heal and move on. Thank you, God, for making me stronger through my weakness.
