MUSIC THERAPY

6 Comments

MUSIC SAVES SOULWhy is it music has the profound ability to soothe our soul? Sometimes when I’m undergoing trials, I find it extremely difficult to inwardly and outwardly sum up and express my thoughts and feelings. Not only does it affect my ability to converse with fellow humans, but my prayers to God are also hindered.

Perhaps you have experienced this as well, and suddenly, you hear a song that expresses precisely how you feel. If so, how did the music and the lyrics affect you? Did they soothe your heart and soul, leaving you feeling somewhat renewed, if only briefly?

I have personally experienced this many times, but one moment in particular that I would like to share happened recently during one of my congregation meetings. As we sang Song #68 (“A Prayer of the Lowly One”), tears welled up in my eyes, and for the first time in a long while, my heart and soul felt consolation.

There are many things that each of us may find to be our therapy during difficult times. Whatever helps to soothe your soul, it’s highly likely that music is one of them. Yes, music is medicine!

Have an awesome day! As always, this is from my heart ❤ to yours <3!

  1. It sure is, Maxine. Just yesterday my friend mentioned how her mother, who is very far gone with Alzheimer’s, still responds to favourite songs.

  3. How did I miss reading this lovely memo?! 😳

    Your thoughts touched my heart as I too recalled this to be so true for so many of us — including our ailing ones who lost the ability to express themselves but display positive reaction and consolation from music. Yes, music is healing and therapeutic medicine for all of us. What a special gift from God.

    Thank you, Maxie. ❤️❤️❤️

  4. Yes amen! Psalms is the longest book in The Bible, I’m sure that is no accident.
