Music can have a healing and comforting effect when life serves up unpalatable portions of insomnia, depression, anxiety, health issues, and other problems that rob us of a peaceful and fulfilling life.
Here is one of my favorite songs that brings comfort when any of the above threaten my well-being.
One of the lessons I have learned in life is how to breathe in those anxious and painful times we all experience sooner or later.
This is what I have learned:
Sit quietly in a comfortable position
Place tongue behind top teeth and breathe in slowly through the nose to the count of seven.
Place tongue behind bottom teeth and breathe out slowly through pursed lips to the count of eight.
Repeat eight times.
I usually do this two or three times in one sitting, a few times a day, and at bed time.
What’s in a breath? Life.
What’s in a breathing exercise? A more relaxed life.
Some things just need to be shared and this song is one of them. It has brought me peace and comfort in times of grief, anxiety, pain, disappointment, and many other of life’s trials. Happy Sunday.
There were times in my life when I desperately called upon the Holy Spirit to be my comfort and strength. He never failed me and He will never fail you. All it takes is to ask. Happy Sunday.
Yesterday I learned of the death of twenty-seven-year-old Jona Kay who died in a car accident on May 7th. Jona is the granddaughter of Butch and Bonnie Dean, fellow bloggers and lovely people.
In their own words “There Are No Words” to describe the pain and anguish this family is suffering.
No, there are no words, but each of us can find words of prayer for God’s peace and comfort for Bonnie and Butch and all of Jona’s family.
Thank you for helping to ease their pain.
There are many people going through different difficulties at this time. Some are known to me, others are known to you, and still others inhabit different parts of this planet.
When we are in the throes of some crisis or other it is so nice to hear someone say the words that will bring us some comfort and peace.
I pray that those of you who need to hear those words will hear a friend or loved one or even that still, small voice say, “I’ve got this.”
Although we may be feeling unwell, grieving a loved one, facing another challenge, we are not alone in our distress even if it feels that way at times. Just knowing that there is a green pasture beside still waters and Someone to turn to for comfort and guidance should be blessing enough. Happy Sunday
