Rescue Me

Music calms my soul. It puts words to my joy and heartache. Music lifts me up when I am low. When I am overfilled with blessings, music accompanies my emotions. Music can soothe the soul or rev up our excitement for life.

“Never underestimate the healing power of listening to your favorite music on full blast while dancing around the house like an idiot.” (author unknown)

That’s another benefit!!! Music can make us feel younger and more vibrant.

You know what music really is?

“God’s little reminder that there’s something else besides us in this universe; harmonic connections between all living beings, everywhere, even the stars.” Robin Williams

I’ve never heard a living soul say they hated music. They might not like Rap or Zydeco, two of my favorites, but everyone loves some kind of music. And that’s our connection.

Well, music has come to my rescue again.

I’ve been in a slump. No know reason. No diagnosis. No medications. Just one of those natural slumps. When I fall into one of these traps, I get out the music. And God led me to the perfect song for my mood. It was sung by Wynnona Judd, “Rescue Me”.

 What do you do when you’re scared inside?

When all of your feelings just seem to collide.

Emotions just seem to let go,

All of your tears always follow.

All of these things that you’re feeling deep down;

And you realize that you’re calling out loud:

I love Thee.

Rescue Me.

Shine Your light, lead me home.

Lord, all I need is Your Love.

I love Thee.

Rescue Me.

Shine Your light, lead me home.

Lord, all I need is your love.

Rescue me, rescue me.

I played this over and over again. Singing. Crying. Healing those frayed emotions.

Oh, it’s Love’s sweet salvation

With Christ the Blessed Lamb.

We can get through anything

As long as it’s You and me.

Hope this song brought back some memories and maybe some healing. Music is powerful. I’ll be sharing more. If you have a song that speaks to your heart, please share it with me.

  1. One dear to my heart that gives me so much hope & joy is "My Redeemer Lives" by Nicole C. Mullen. And a close runner-up is "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban (& many others)? " I am strong upon Your Shoulders, You raise me up to more than I can be." ♡
