That Song - That Moment

One thing you may or may not know about me is I love to sing. I love singing and praising my God! I used to make up songs when I was little. I would sing all of the way to church and back (30 min drive). Music has been a HUGE part of my life! There have been countless songs throughout my life that I feel have helped bring me closer to God. Powerful lyrics and messages that have touched me deeply.

Today I want to share just one of those songs with you...
I shared in a previous post about my son Joshua and how he was born with a cleft palate. Those first couple of years of his life were tough. I went through so many emotions. I was sad, worried, scared and most of all upset and maybe even angry. I didn't understand why? Why my son was born with this "problem"? Why us? What did we do wrong?

This song: Your Hands by JJ Heller was such a blessing at that time in my life...
As I sat in the waiting room while Joshua was having palate surgery I remember I had downloaded this song on my MP3 player the day before specifically for the day of Joshua's surgery. I put my headphones on, hit play and and listened to it with tears in my eyes. These words expressed exactly how I felt. I put this song on replay and listened to it the entire time my son was in surgery... 
"When my world is shaking, heaven stands
When my heart is breaking 
I never leave your hands"

I felt God's hands holding me. Telling me everything was going to be ok & assuring me that he was in control...

 Is there a song that has touched you and helped you in your spiritual walk?

Linking up with Leah + Amy
