When Life is Rough… a Pause

Life has been indescribably difficult lately. The Psalm that says “my tears have been my food day and night” is one I can definitely relate to more than ever before at the moment.

I don’t want to write. I don’t want to sing. I don’t want to dance. If I do any of those things it is forced. I can’t say I enjoy them right now. What do you write about when the world has brought so much pain that you can’t even write about it?

Yesterday two friends shared this with me. It is a personal favorite hymn of mine, but I don’t think I was prepared for what I heard.

Turn off the lights. Lay down. Or sit comfortably. Close your eyes. Press play. And just meditate on the sweetest most soul gripping arrangement I have ever heard.
