This post is somewhat of a prelude to what I’ll be posting on Friday. Often I post a song with what I’ve written because it not only speaks to me, but it also relates to what I’ve written, as well as what I’ve been going through myself. The network that God uses to comfort us is actually incredibly vast and overwhelming. Music is one of those sources we can tap into for encouragement.
In Scripture were told to minister to one another with Psalms, hymns, and songs (Collossians 3:16 , Ephesians 5:19-20), and while I don’t know if many listen to the music that I post, it’s there if anyone should need it, and God chooses to use it. I’m not a musician myself, but I’m thankful for those who use that gift to speak God’s comfort through song.
For sometime I’ve wanted to do a “Music that Speaks” post on a particular artist who is fairly new to me. I’m a huge admirer of her work though, which continues to speak volumes. It was when I came across the song “Miracle or Not” that I knew it was time to tackled this post.
“Miracle or Not,” speaks to my own desire for God’s healing touch, and the thoughts that we may wrestle with as God takes us by the hand, instructing us to trust Him through the storm. I know that I’m not the only one who has prayed for, and continues to pray for those miracles, and I’m not the only one who has faced the challenges of chronic illness either.
Alisa Turner has a testimony herself that is worth sharing. (It’s a tear jerker, but I also know that her story will end with tears of joy). None of us are exempt from the trials, but the victory that we have in Jesus can be the comfort that heals us in ways that we were never expecting. There is always triumph in the trial—miracle or not.
