Do you ever have one of those moments, or one of those days.....You know what I mean, when you get swept into a pit of self-pitty!?? And it's so hard to get out?? For me, it seems to not be a string of events that can send me into this place, but sometimes just a single event, a small moment of something discouraging or worrying happens, and it sends me into this terrible place of feeling very sorry for myself. Even if most things in my life are going great at that time, this one instance can make me only be able to see the negative in my life. I get in this pit of only seeing what I lack, or the things I need, rather than seeing the places that are great and that I am blessed with.
I feel that in some way or another we all go through this type of scenario. The question is....how do you get out of it!?? Sometimes it's hard right!??
Well let me share a little encouragement with you, or maybe a little challenge!!
This song has been amazing for me. I will literally listen to it over, and over, and over, and over. NEVER getting tired of it! The lyrics just inspire me and literally can lift me out of this pit! The version of the song that I am sharing with you is extremely long! But the end is one of the best parts, and it's not on my cd like this, so I love to look it up on YouTube. I love the lyrics that say:
"....Sometimes, you gotta sing your way into the truth, you gotta sing your way into the truth, you gotta sing your way into the truth. That He really satisfies!"
So my CHALLENGE for you, is, next time you are feeling down, or caught in the pit of self-pitty, or maybe you just need some time to yourself to be inspired, or filled up, or encouraged, here's what I want you to do. Just go in a room, shut the door, maybe turn the lights out, lay on the floor, close your eyes, and let this song play. Just let the lyrics soak in!
It never fails that this song lifts me out of the pit of self-pitty and worry, and encourages me to my core! If you don't believe me, then try it yourself!
