An Uplifting Artist

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.

Rescue by Lauren Daigle

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

I am Yours by Lauren Daigle

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!

Look Up Child by Lauren Daigle

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?


This weekend has been funky.  Not particularly bad, but definitely funky.

I think it’s stress that’s manifesting itself in physical ways.  First, since Wednesday and including today, I have woken up at least 5 minutes before my alarm every morning.  Sometimes it a full hour before I wake up.  And I’m wide awake.

Second, my stomach has been doing this flippy thing.  You know the feeling you get when you drop on a rollercoaster?  That feeling, and especially when I’m about to eat something.

So, this weekend, I just stayed in.  I wasn’t sure at the beginning of the weekend whether or not the stomach thing was actual illness, but I’m pretty sure now that it’s just stress.  It was nice to be able to kind of remove myself for a little while and just breathe.

Although, there is a part of me that gets frustrated when I stress out this way.  As a control freak, it’s not fun to be out of control of my sleep or stomach.  But I took it as an opportunity to rest with God, to talk to Him about the stuff going on in my life.  And I played this song on repeat

It’s such a good reminder to know that He has got this.  I don’t know where my path is going to take me in this life, but I rest in the knowledge that God is walking with me every step of the way.

How was your weekend?  Did you do anything fun?
