A New Comfort For My Soul

I love music!!! I love nature! I love art! The lord speaks to me through music in the most gentle yet profounding way! Whenever I’m approaching new seasons in my life I often ask him to give me new songs that speak to me, new songs that take me to a higher place of praise and worship. I notice something different though, when certain songs would get stuck in my spirit, immediately I’d understand why, sometimes, it took days to realize that particular song is speaking to my now! He would lead me to songs that allow me to zoom in on where I am with myself personally, in life, in our walk, the growth that had taken place from my past season that I’m seeing fruit in my current season. And, as I listen and listen and meditate and meditate I start basking in the light that wow! This song is really talking about me right now, this is so me! It tells me point blank that this is whats going on!

In that (those) emotional moment (s) I feel so blessed, so loved, so deeply favored that he took his time to gently but in a profound way run that by me. To let me know I’m on his mind, he sees me and this is where I am. He encourages me softly to keep going. He notices the progress I’ve made and is making. How can I not love him?? How can I not pour out my praise on him?? How can I not bawl when I fall on my knees wishing I could just explode and dissolve into him?! As I get lost in that song, stuck on replay meditating on the words, line by line, taken to a serene mental state, that’s a way to express gratitude to him! To acknowledge him! Thanking him for where he’s brought me! Where my struggles, my pain, my brokenness, the lies I fought through, the betrayal I faced, the torment I endured and the fear I overcame…this place, this season is where it brought me! A stronger woman! A woman of increased faith, increased praise! A woman of deep trust, a woman of understanding and deep compassion for others! An overcomer! A woman ready to go through some more but hoping I’m given a little break to rest- just a little break Jesus lemme catch my breath 🤣. A woman who knows her God on a higher level! Walking side by side in a more loving way… A fearless woman with her Jehovah Nissi by her side ready to conquer whatever comes her way. A woman who learned to rest in her savior’s arms telling him her troubles, relieving herself and being refilled with his peace and approval. A woman who’s In love with how naked and unashamed she feels as she shares her heart with him. A woman who is free in him, free from the expectations of others, the pressures of society. A woman who loves and respects herself, needs only his approval. A woman who understands that she will never be enough to human/ flesh but is enough on her own and in his eyes. A woman who has learned the beauty in loving others freely and genuinely. A woman who keeps making mistakes but gets up and try again. A woman wrapped up, tangled up in his love for her, who sleeps peacefully when she lays her head on her pillow imagining him sitting right by her bedside protecting her, smiling as he watches her doze off.  A woman who realizes her soul is truly at rest and has deep joy when she’s not over thinking!

What do you love? In what way does God speak or comfort you through the things you love that you cant help but love him so very much deeper?
