Music helps me get through those times when it would other wise be impossible. Sometimes the perfect song sneaks up on me and other times I’m searching for hope. There is just something about music that can make any moment just a little better.
I’m very eclectic when it comes to music – which really shouldn’t be all that surprising since I’m not exactly normal in other aspects of my life. It can be old, new, country, rap, or what ever form it needs to take. As long as the music is good, the lyrics are solid (and tell some sort of story), and it preferably has a beat you can dance to then I’m a happy camper.
Flipping through stations on an errand run the other day, I got the privilege of hearing “If You’re Going Through Hell” for the first time. It has a catchy tune and a fun beat. The next time I heard it was when I really started to think. The last line of the chorus “you might get out before the devil even knows you’re there” was the one that kept spinning through my head.
In war, the enemy will attack and it may take some time before the results of that attack are known. If the opposition shows no sign of weakness or injury, then the enemy may not realize the pain it has inflicted.
Could it be that when we are under attack, we need to push through with as little noise and fanfare as possible so that the enemy doesn’t know what kind of chaos he might be causing in our lives?
You got to have a little kick in your step and little groove in your ditty. Don’t let the circumstances pull you down. Sometimes all you have is your attitude. It can be the wind beneath your wings or the stone that pulls you down.
If things get tough, like they sometimes will, then find a song to help bring you through. “Do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight”. 😀
