I’ve shared music with you that has encouraged and supported me through various points in my life, especially the last five years. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with one artist in particular which probably should be no surprise, and that is Lauren Daigle.
I know that she has newer music, but I keep coming back to these three songs over and over again. In fact, when I ask Google Home to play music, it usually includes these songs without my prompting.
I like to meditate to this song as a reminder of not just what God is willing to do in our lives, but how we should see people around us and what He is willing to do for them. This song also ignites a story in my head. If I ever get up enough discipline and courage to write fiction, this song is for sure going to be in my playlist
So, back in January, I spoke about my pregnancy loss. When I was working on my speech (actually, I had just finished it), I asked Google to play a Lauren Daigle song, and this was the one that popped up. It starts out with “I see your fingerprints…” which is how I ended my speech! It was kismet, I tell you. Plus the song aptly describes my thoughts and feelings about faith during suffering. Let the rain fall!
This is the perfect song for when I feel like I’m drowning in everything that is going on in my personal life and in the world around me. This song has also become an earworm that visits every morning when I wake up. Maybe God is trying to get my attention? Or maybe I just play this song on repeat. (I mean, other mornings I wake up with the R&B version of Baby Shark in my head, so I’m not taking it too seriously.)
Do you have an artist that you go to for encouragement?
