Music Therapy: My Playlist | East Texas Moms Blog

I never knew the power of Christian radio until I began treatment for Hashimoto’s and Lyme disease in 2014. Neither did I realize that I could channel my hurt, anger, disappointment, and sadness to someone so much bigger than me … God. By singing … and sometimes shouting or even crying out certain songs… I felt that I could physically give these painful emotions over to Him.

Through my despair; my faith grew. 

At the start of my “alternative” treatment for an array of health issues, I was hypersensitive to sound. Soothing music was as much as I could take. This is when a dear friend introduced me to “I Am Not Alone” by Kari Jobe. As I spent most of my days hooked to an IV, my blood drawn multiple times, and needles literally stabbed all over my body, I played “I Am Not Alone” over and over. By memorizing the words, the song became a prayer that got me through some rather painful treatment:

“When I walk through deep waters
I know that You will be with me
When I’m standing in the fire
I will not be overcome
Through the valley of the shadow
I will not fear
I am not alone
I am not alone
You will go before me
You will never leave me”

After I discovered that Christian radio gave me words that were hard to find; I was hooked.

I started collecting songs like recipe cards …

… and below I have shared a few from my playlist. It is my hope to help others create their own unique playlist for life’s hills and valleys.

At this season in my life, “Fear is a Liar” is my song. I sing it until my throat hurts, and believe me, I cannot sing and it is not pretty but it feels SO good! I have faith God will send you your song just when you need it.
