Often times all we can see is turmoil around us. The pain of loss, broken trust, failure, and stress for what is to come etc. can leave us with a drowning feeling. All of us have something we are going through, something we are stressed about, and/or unanswered questions that plague our thoughts. What do we do in this time?
Something that is helpful for me is to read scripture while I listen to music.
I urge you to read through these verses while listening to the song above. Take some time to let the truth of God’s word soak into your pain, anxiety, and questioning.
“Cast your burden on the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.”
Psalms 55:22 HCSB
“But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 HCSB
“For I am persuaded that not even death or life, angels or rulers, things present or things to come, hostile powers, height or depth, or any other created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!”
Romans 8:38-39 HCSB
“Therefore, my dear brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work, knowing that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”
1 Corinthians 15:58 HCSB
