Music Heals

A major part of me being able to keep any shred of my sanity, especially after the events from the past 3 years, is due to reestablishing my faith.

I’ve started doing something I’d never had thought in my wildest dreams of ever doing, which I used to laugh at and make fun of…listening to Christian music. My boyfriend started sharing a few songs that he liked and now I’ve been finding more on my own.

Any reservations that I’ve had…well, it’s my blog and I can post about God if I want to.

Whatever you do or don’t believe in, it’s all aces with me.

Sharing this video is damn important to me, so perhaps it could become important to someone else who may stumble across it while innocently looking up card tricks.

It’s exactly how I feel and I’m telling you, I haven’t felt much of anything good in a long time.

I’m going back to my roots, back to when my dad was still alive and I’d look up at him as he sang hymns in church. The colors from the stained glass windows would wash over him and he’d be illuminated in a glorious rainbow of light.

It feels like this particular song is speaking directly to me. Music has such a way of healing us.

Well, I’m positively certain that I’m not the only person who can relate so adamantly to these lyrics.

Plus, I love the name of the lovely human who sings it. Plumb is pretty cool, although if it were me, I’d go with Pineapple.

Even though citrus hurts my mouth.

She tells a little bit of her backstory before she performs the song. It takes a lot of guts to share so openly about your life.


Lord I’m Ready Now by Plumb 2015
I just let go
And I feel exposed
But it’s so beautiful
‘Cause this is who I am
I’ve been such a mess
But now I can’t care less
I could bleed to death
Oh Lord I’m ready now
All the walls are down
Time is running out
And I wanna make this count
I ran away from you
And did what I wanted to
But I don’t wanna let you down
Oh Lord I’m ready now
Lord I’m ready now
I was so caught up
In who I’m not
Can you please forgive me?
Oh Lord I’m ready now
All the walls are down
Time is running out
And I wanna make this count
I ran away from you
And did what I wanted to
But I don’t wanna let you down
Oh Lord I’m ready now
Lord I’m ready now
I’ve nothing left to hide, oh
No reason’s left to lie
Give me another chance
Lord I’m ready now
All the walls are down
Time is running out
And I wanna make this count
I ran away from you
And I did what I wanted to
But I don’t wanna let you down
Oh Lord I’m ready now
Lord I’m ready now

I’ll be posting soon about my trip to Holden Beach, NC one day this week.

I”ll also be trying to catch up on some posts soon.

    • I’m glad. I still swear often, have a dirty and dark sense of humor sometimes…but I know that I need Jesus in my life…and that he accepts me for who I am. ❤
