What is Your Song?
I have a confession to make. I do not know my love language. It sounds lovely and helpful and cool, but at this point I think I may go rogue and just enjoy the shock and awe of my sisters and brothers when I tell them I don’t know.
I do know if music could possibly be an option, then sign me up! I am a music person. .When I was younger, if I had extra money it would go on records and later albums and even later concert tickets. I love to talk about music with other music people...and I fear I may even talk too much about music with non music people! I think music is like an invisible connective tissue that has the ability to bring people together, to repair what is broken, or at very least make us smile. A song can take me back to a great time or a not so great time. One could dare to say that music is my jam.
I have the privilege here at WFRN to speak with listeners regarding our music. Most of the time it is a fun game of “name that tune”, and sometimes I get a “that song” call. I can hear the emotion in the caller’s voice when they ask ” What was that song?” The song that said exactly what they needed to hear. The song that God knew they would need to hear at exactly the right time. It is an honor for me to take calls like this, because I think lots of us have a “that song”. For some it could be a traditional hymn, others an old school southern gospel song. A song that when you hear it you are reminded and filled. I absolutely have one, and would love to share it with you.
For many years I was an alcoholic and drug addict, and like so many of us Jesus saved me when I finally had enough and asked for help. I was doing everything I was supposed to do, and really was sure I was healed of my addiction. Then I got into a big argument with a close friend and I did not know what to do without alcohol. I went into a closet and had a drink. Actually, I had a drink of a drink because it made me ill ( I’d like to believe the Holy Spirit did it!)
The next morning, racked with guilt, I went to church. The band opened with a David Crowder song- “The Glory of it All”. There is a very simple yet beautiful part of the song that says
“It’s a new day, everything will change, we will never be the same…”. It hit me like a ton of grace bricks. I have not had a drink since that Saturday night I hid in a closet in despair. I still have this song on my playlist, and it will always remind me of that day and fill me with confidence of my God’s provision in my life, and also that He loves me enough to speak to me in my love language!
Now, dear blog reader, if you have read this far you must participate completely. I want to know what your song is!
Right now it's "Look What You've Done" by Tasha Layton! :)
I loved Staci’s article! And one of my songs is “Where There Is Faith” by 4HIM. :-)
Thank you for sharing about your love language, Staci! I love how you described your song as a ton of grace bricks. I have so many "that" songs! One for just about every season and valley. Thy Will by Hillary Scott and King of the World by Natalie Grant are two stand outs for me.
