Finding Encouragement Through Music

Isaiah 40:31
Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.

I listen to a lot of music. I find that it encourages my heart, calms me down when I’m stressed, and focuses my mind and heart to work more effectively and praise God more passionately. So, I thought I would share a song that I have been enjoying lately. It is called “Hurry up and Wait” by MercyMe. Part of the lyrics go like this:

90 miles a minute
Life's a circus, and you're in it
Too afraid to admit it
You're spinning out of control

So, keep going like you've got this
Keep smiling just to hide it
Keep moving not to notice
It's slowly taking its toll

The faster you can slow this down
To the rhythm of right now
The sooner you’ll find your strength

So hurry up and wait
Rest your weary head for a moment
Hurry up and wait
Feel the burden lift off your shoulders

You should take the time to listen to it. Also, the music video is fun as well. I am not sure I would make it through all of life’s ups and downs without music.

Give it a try and see what God says to your heart. Music is a great way to “Equip People to Know Jesus and Follow Him.”

Be safe and I am praying for you all.
