Day 27 of gratitude month

Today I am so grateful for a lot of things. The first being alive and well. I will never take this for granted. Last night I could not sleep so i was just awake until now. Its been more than 30 hours and i feel extremely tired.

Usually i get brain electric like shocks if i do not sleep well. So i get down and sad & depressed. However there has been a comfort given to me & that is music. I could feel myself losing control around 9am. I really wanted to sleep but I couldn’t and I was starting to cry. The problem is I was surrounded by people and i could not afford to cry. So i opened my playlist. I call it A. It is an amazing playlist. It has about 5 songs and they are all gospel songs.

This year when my life was tough I came across the group Maverick City. They are singer-songwriter group. So amazing. Their songs are really a blessing, I think they are American. They have English songs and they have an amazing ministry.

My favourite song is called The story I will tell by Naomi Raine. This song helped me today. I am so grateful that this song was released now in 2020 and it spoke to my situation encouraging me to keep calm and trust that God will take care of me.

The story I will tell is my go to song whenever I am stressed. I used to rely on BTS music but they were replaced by this amazing group. This song ministers to my dear soul and it affirms that even though I can not see God defending me or doing anything right now, the songs says;

The hour is dark, and it’s hard to see
What You are doin’ here in the ruins
And where this will lead
Oh, but I know
That down through the years
I’ll look on this moment and see Your hand on it
And know You were here

And I’ll testify of the battles You’ve won
How You were my portion when there wasn’t enough
And I’ll testify of the seas that we’ve crossed
The waters You parted, the waves that I’ve walked

Singing, oh-oh-oh, my God did not fail (Yeah)
Oh-oh-oh, it’s the story I’ll tell
Singing, oh-oh-oh, I know it is well
Oh-oh-oh, it’s the story I’ll tell

I hope that is the story that I will tell. That my God did not fail me. I am just grateful to get a painkiller for my depression and a source of comfort. Everytime I listen to it my faith gets renewed.
