I pay attention to repeating messages – the same verse that seems to show up everywhere, friends saying eerily similar things in completely different conversations, the random things that pop up in day-to-day life that somehow all relate back to something that’s been weighing on my heart and mind.
I was stopped dead in my tracks by one of those repeating messages – this time a song.
I had Lauren Daigle Pandora radio playing through our Alexa and I was doing mindless house chores. I sat down to take a little break and do some mindless scrolling when I came across the video below. I almost didn’t click on it. In fact, I scrolled on by, but something told me to go back and listen.
And listen, I did. Then I cried.
Alexa had no more than finished playing this song, and here it was again playing on my phone. And I was moved to tears.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get so caught up and overwhelmed that I don’t have the words to pray. But this repeating message, this song, reminded me that I don’t need words.
It’s okay to not have the right words or any words at all. We need only speak His name.
“What a powerful name it is – the name of Jesus.”
