I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. This is also day 4 of Write 31 days. This week’s FMF word prompt is “listen.” We would love to have you join us.
The music wafts through the air. Each sound and lyric a prayer to my ears. It’s amazing to me how music often speaks to us.
I can remember standing almost at the top of Estes Cone in the Colorado Rocky Mountains a few summers ago. A makeshift cross and altar next to me. A simple card left to disintegrate in the dirt. Tears streaming down my face as I lifted my prayers to God and I listened to these words from Ellie Holcomb “Sometimes we have to bury dreams leave them deep in the earth behind us.”
Music is often prayers lifted to God. I think of so many of my favorite songs and artists…Rend Collective, Lauren Daigle, Jars of Clay, Ryan Stevenson—just to name a few.
Ryan’s new song “When We Fall Apart” is a great example of how we Capp listen to those we love and can use their words to create something beautiful. This song is a gift especially if you’ve lost someone close. Give it a listen!
I agree! “Music is often prayers lifted to God.” I have been enjoying the hymns we sing on Sunday morning–some of them written a hundred years ago or more.
music makes it so easy for me to talk to God. Easier than quiet or even spoken prayer.
Sometimes for me too!
Music is such a healer. When I went through the loss of my mother, Music brought me through. Coming from FMF.
Music truly is!
Music is so powerful for reminding us of truth and helping us focus on God. I haven’t heard any of Ryan Stevenson’s music before but I like the song you shared.
Yes indeed! I’m surprised you haven’t heard any of Ryan’s music before. I’m glad you liked his new song.
Thank you for sharing, Tara. What a great way to use that prompt and I appreciate your vulnerability in discussing your grief.
