It’s so easy to get caught up in all the garbage and heartache that this world can throw at us, and when you’re going through your own trials it can definitely overload your heart. I recently had to unfollow (not unfriend) some of the people I was following on Facebook because I was seeing too much of the darker side of life. I get why they want to share some of this stuff (to raise awareness, and that’s important), but sometimes it’s just too much for me. I need the truth, but I also need things that are nobel, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy. (Philippians 4:8) A bit of humor doesn’t hurt either.

That being said, I’d like to share this song by the lovely Hanah Kerr. It’s both a beautiful and hopefilled message. We’re reminded that when we are stuck between a rock and a hard place, that our Rock, Jesus Christ, can make a way when it feels as if there is no way. Who doesn’t need this reminder?

Music That Speaks

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” –John 14:6

    1. So true! Thanks for the comment, Tina. It always feels weird when I use my own name in a comment. It’s like I’m already writing that letter to myself. Lol. I actually commented to myself on my blog once. Lol. I commented something like, ” Stop that, you’ve got this.” Lol. But then I deleted it because I was sure someone would think I was loonie tunes. Lol. I do like that letter to self thing though. It was very cute! 😃 ❤

  1. You have to do what you feel you are lead to do on social media. Sometimes you have to let certain people go. I love the words to this song. I too believe He can still split the sea!

    1. That’s true. Some friendships do have to dissipate. I actually didn’t totally unfriend anyone on Facebook, but I did unfollow their page so what they post wouldn’t end up in my news feed. I did however, have to part ways with a friend not too long ago because we weren’t rubbing one another the right way. Iron just wasn’t sharing iron anymore. Unfortunately, the opposite occured. I have some things to share about that experience because I really struggled with this situation, and I had a lot of confusion as to what the right way of handling it was. However, when you ask you receive your help and answers, so God did help me sort it out. In the end we peacefully parted ways.

      1. Thanks for sharing your experience. I recently have begun to think I need to part ways with a particular friend too. I’ve been praying for wisdom.

      2. That’s a perfect plan! God most definitely answers prayer, and He wants to give us wisdom. It’s the stuff that we don’t really need that He withholds for our good. I’ll pray with you. It’s not easy to cut ties!

    1. Yes, me too. It beings me down even more when I am facing my own challenges. Then I really need even more positivity. So that’s what I’m working towards for my own blog. We do have to share our burdens, and sometimes tackle some difficult subjects, but I’m trying to find some balance.

  2. I understand the need to walk away and be separated from the negativity and the darkness. I’ve always thought of my spirit as being a sponge that absorbs what is around and if I’m not intentional in what I expose it to, I will have absorbed all the dirty stuff and when pressed and squeezed, they will ooze out.

    1. Thanks so much for the comment, Sannia. That was a really nice surprise. ❤ Have you been writing anything? I feel like I must be missing notifications. I haven't seen you publish anything in a while.

      1. I’ve been so busy lately, and haven’t been able to find the time to write anything. But I’ll be posting something soon, I truly miss it like anything! 😖

  3. I understand Tina. It’s only because we are hurting so much we have to limit the outside hurts that can only make us feel worse. But, I still pray for them and give it all over to God. Much love!💞💞
