Do you ever hear a song and it instantly pulls you back to a moment in time?
C had an old phone because he wanted to play music on it. The song God Alone from our church’s album came on and I was instantly back in that hospital bed. I’m pretty sure my amazing, loving mom had just shared a few choice words with a tech and asked her to leave the room because she’d dug at my veins so hard trying to get a line in that there was a huge lump and bruise forming.
They called in the special team and I was at a breaking point. It was probably around my 105th chemo treatment at that time. My veins were shot. I put in my earbuds and plugged it into the computer to play God Alone as the special team worked on getting it in. It was blaring. I wanted this world tuned out. My focus was on Him and all he’d carried me through. They got the line in and I pulled my earbuds out to thank them. But I wasn’t the only one hearing my blaring music. The whole team did. They just smiled. They needed some Jesus too.
The song is so powerful. I shared it in the comments. One of my favorite lines is, “I’m finally the one you called me to be”. Yes, thank you God, alone.
