So often our lives, or moments of our lives can be defined by music. I think that is why I love it so much. If I hear certain songs I can take you to a specific time, place, moment, event or memory. I have hundreds. On Sunday, as we made the final turn and the finish line was in sight, the song below came on my iPod. With the emotions already spent, used up and spilled out, I couldn’t have chosen a better song at that very moment.
While the controversy surrounding the song “Healer” by Hillsong United was well documented, I will always believe the hand that penned these lyrics was inspired by God. There is too much truth, hope, strength, encouragement and worship in it to believe otherwise. As we neared the finish line and my strength was no longer my own, my thoughts were of my children. It was at that moment that I heard their cheers and saw their faces. The words streaming through the iPod sang “Nothing is impossible for you, you hold my world in your hands“. Take a few minutes to listen to this song and read the lyrics. Thank you Lord for a moment made for worshiping and a song to match that moment.
