We Grow Stronger After We Break

Music has always played an important role in my recovery–mostly praise and worship music or anything inspirational. I love music that touches my heart and speaks joy into my heart–or makes me FEEL something–especially when I was empty and couldn’t feel anything.

Today I repeatedly listened to the song River by Josh Grobin and wrote a post on my blog with the video on it. Here is the link if you would like to see it.

The song River touched my heart. Sometimes a song or music in general does that for me. I can lose myself in the beauty and power of music and art–it captures my soul for a while and I lose myself within it. It is extraordinarily healing, soothing and can be exhilarating. I love that when it happens.

This is part of the uplifting chorus to the song River:

“I walk down to the river,

Though I might not understand it,

It’s not always as we planned it,

  1. This is fantastic!

    For one thing, we were talking about being broken and rebuilding this week in a religion class I attended. Then, we discussed the topic of “Wounded” (with all the physical analogies of repair, healing, and scarring) in church Sunday.

    Coincidental, yes?

    During the week, someone mentioned she’d read an aphorism that, “When we’re broken, the light can shine through.”

    A woman whom I know on FB then posted a bit about broken pottery turning to bits; but then, when mixed with water, it forms a new clay to be molded.

    So, so cool! I love the analogies!


    • Chelsea. Thank you so much for your great feedback. I am very sorry it took me so long to respond back to you. Maybe there are no coincedencies…. just kidding. But that was great how you were just talking about a similar thing in your religion class. I love that. I love all the analogies you shared. I love when we are broken the light can shine through. We always want to be a light and maybe the more broken we have been the brighter our light will shine. I love that! Thank you Chelsea. I hope you are doing well. I think you are awesome. Much love and hugs, Sue
