Need to re-post this:
Recently I had to fill in those “security questions” for a particular site. The one question was what is my favorite song and I thought, “I don’t have an all-time favorite, so when asked to provide this answer down the line, I’ll have no clue as to what I put down!” And, it happened. I had to call the institution to change the questions.
So, I just happened to be searching for songs to add to a playlist that I wanted to be uplifting AND have some specific significance for me at this exact point and what I’m needing guidance and inspiration around.
No surprise that my intuition brought me to this song instantly. I am always deepely moved whenever I hear it.
I do feel it from a romantic perspective and that desire to have a connection with the man in my life..to trust him completely in this way and to know that he trusts me in the same way.
And, I have always felt a deep, profound connection to God when I hear it. It resonates completely through my body and washes away my fears. This is the connection I’m feeling today. This is what I am needing in this trying time.
And in the deepest sense, I feel God in Me when I listen now. I can trust myself as equally as I trust God…because I am from Him and part of Him.
There is a little mantra that I have used in times of immediate stress – “Be still and know that I am God.” Saying this grounds me and brings me calmness and joy.
This song was originally written and sung by John Hiatt. It has been covered by many artists including Joe Cocker, Chaka Kan, Etta James and more recently I heard it in a movie performed by Bon Jovi and Lea Michele – it was incredibly beautiful – the duet of their voices is just amazing.
It’s funny how this happens. I stumble on this song and then all of a sudden it shows up in other places and takes me by surprise and brings me utter delight.
I’ve provided a video of the Joe Cocker version because I have always been a big fan of his and the black and white picture journey is beautiful.
So, for this week, this is my favorite song of all time. And, it might just stay there.
Here’s the link to the vid – take a moment to watch. Always have faith….
