Recently, there have been two songs I have listened to on repeat. I couldn’t make it through either of them without crying—and crying like a baby! Eventually I did, and now I just play and sing them over and over again.
I saw Brandi Carlisle play at the 30A Songwriters Festival. The song “That Wasn’t Me” stopped me in my tracks right in the middle of all the people. It speaks to my heart in so many ways. If you have been in a place completely out of your mind or struggled with addiction, I think you will understand this song.
Bethel Music released their new album called Victory. The whole thing is fantastic, but “Goodness of God”—uuuugggghhhh, my heart!! It is so very anointed and such truth. I cannot listen to it or sing it enough.
Life is good. I am happier than I have ever been, doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing, but it wasn’t always this way. When you look at me and anything I ever do, I hope you see the goodness of God because I shouldn’t be here.
These two songs tell stories about my journey and so many others. I want you to know deep down you will get better. You won’t be crazy forever.
Take a step today and move forward, even if it is as tiny as a smile and a little hope.
